Welcome to MVPediatrics
I’m very glad to be back at the practice and grateful to everyone who took such good care of things while I was gone. At this point I’ll be focusing more on our fully integrated behavioral health program and stepping back from general pediatrics while remaining available to help out in any way the practice finds useful. From a practical point of view this means I will not be accepting any new babies or other primary care patients. Those patients I’ve had the privilege of taking care of should transition over to one of our other wonderful providers understanding, of course, that I will remain available to them and their new provider to be helpful anyway I can.
We are excited to announce that Dr. Whitney Kirchoff joined our practice as of April 2018!
Dr. Whitney Kirchoff was born in Juneau, Alaska. She studied biomedical engineering at Duke University and then went to Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine where she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Kirchoff completed her internship and residency in pediatrics at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
“The most useful things we know, we have learned from our patients.“
Thank you for making MVPediatrics your favorite for the 4th year in a row!

Reassuring Our Children Our children know us very well. Not having jobs or other responsibilities and not coming to the task with a lot of useless information they have lots of time to observe us and make experiments. If I do this, will they do that? Will they be...read more
