Your child’s pediatrician offers preventive care, treats illnesses and cares for minor injuries. If your child needs additional services, we’ll connect you to specialists and coordinate those services.
We work with specialists experienced in treating conditions related to nutrition, heart care, diabetes, behavior, gastroenterology, gynecology and more.
The Children’s National Pediatricians & Associates (CNPA) primary care team is here for you and your family. We work to provide your family with the best care needed to build the foundation for a lifetime of good health.
Scheduling routine and sick visits is easy and we always do our best to meet your busy schedule and your preference. Depending on the urgency of the appointment, we make every effort to accommodate your needs within 24 to 48 hours.
One Practice, Two Locations
The CNPA Capitol Hill and Foggy Bottom offices function as one practice with two locations. The two offices share providers, staff and patients. Patients in the practice may be offered an appointment at either site depending on appointment availability.
Hours of Operation
Urgent care is available by appointment only for existing patients. Same day urgent care appointments are available Monday – Friday (8 a.m. - 4 p.m.) and Saturday (9 a.m. – 12 p.m.) Phone lines are open to schedule urgent care appointments Monday – Friday at 7 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m.
There are a limited number of appointments available on Saturday mornings. Existing patients may call at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning to request an appointment for that Saturday. Saturday appointments are located at either Capitol Hill or Foggy Bottom on alternating Saturdays.
Prescription Refill Information
If your child needs a prescription refill, please log-in to the patient portal to submit your request. You can also contact your pediatrician’s office directly and our team will send an electronic order to your pharmacy.
Access Our Patient Portal
The CNPA Patient Portal allows you to prepare for your visit by sending messages, requesting appointments, refilling prescriptions or completing school forms and referrals. You can also check lab results and stay up-to-date on preventive care such as flu shots. These portals can be accessed anytime through your smartphone, tablet or computer.
