Welcome to Our Practice

At Pavilion Pediatrics we consider our patients to be our extended family. Our goal is for every parent to feel that we are caring for their child with the same compassion as we care for our own. We have been a part of the Baltimore community for over 45 years, originally founded by Dr. Lawrence Pakula. We provide comprehensive, up-to-date medical care for infants, children, adolescents and young adults. We closely monitor your child's development, and provide extensive guidance to you as your child grows and matures. We are affiliated with Johns Hopkins Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

Our practice consists of five board certified pediatricians, along with our certified registered nurse practitioners who provide routine well exams and sick care for our patients. We pride ourselves on providing compassionate, quality medical care for all of our patients. Our physicians also enjoy their role as educators and participate in the education of medical students and pediatric residents who are completing their training at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
