Samuel Weinstein, M.D., F.A.A.P.
Pediatrician in Fairfax County & Loudoun County, VAVirginia Pediatric Group
Dr. Samuel Weinstein was born in New York, NY and grew up in its suburb, Great Neck, Long Island , NY. He has been a Pediatrician for over four decades and is honored that many of the parents in our practice were originally his patients. He began his undergraduate training at Yale University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Cum Laude distinction in 1965. He attained his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York in 1969. In 1972, he completed his residency in Pediatrics and Child Psychiatry at Presbyterian Hospital in New York. Soon thereafter he began his own private practice in Northern California in 1973. He was board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics at that time and re-certified in 2010.
He moved to the greater Washington, DC region in 1986 and has been practicing Pediatrics at Virginia Pediatric Group since 1987. In addition, he has been an Assistant Professor in Ambulatory Pediatrics at Georgetown School of Medicine having taught medical students for over twenty-five years. He is a member of the Fairfax County Medical Society and a member of the Inova Fairfax Hospital Credentials Committee since 1996.
He feels there is always something new in Pediatric practice every day and cannot imagine any other career. His greatest joy is in loving and caring for children and their parents and rejoicing when they return to his practice with children of their own. His special interests include nutrition, childhood asthma and allergies, and providing thoughtful anticipatory guidance to all of our parents to help them raise their children to be healthy and happy. Practicing Pediatrics is something from which he never tires and to which he looks forward to continuing for many years to come. He speaks some Medical French and Spanish. In his free time, he enjoys singing in choir, volunteering with senior citizens, and spending time with his family. He resides in Chevy Chase, Maryland with his wife and takes pride in his two grown children and five grandchildren.
