Pediatrician Staff

Meet our team at Olney Pediatrics! Please take a few moments to learn about our pediatricians and our friendly, nurturing staff.

At Olney Pediatrics, we consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for children. Most of us are parents ourselves, so we strive to be understanding and available to the families we are privileged to serve. We are honored that you have chosen us as your child's primary medical provider and are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care and service that we can provide you and your family.

A vital part of our service to children begins with our outstanding staff who work hard to manage and maintain a professional, caring and supportive environment for our patients in a timely manner. Our doctors are lifelong learners. Not only have they received advanced medical training in pediatrics, they continually pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest in child health care.

Your child's health is as important to us as it is to you. We look forward to providing you with the excellent medical care your child deserves.

Doctors Schwartz, Lee, Tran, and Schwartz have all been recognized by the National Board of Medical Examiners. We are all Board Certified in the specialty of General Pediatrics.  We are on the medical staff of Medstar Montgomery Medical Center, where we see newborn babies. Our office has longstanding relationships with physicians at Shady Grove Hospital, Holy Cross Hospital, Children's National Medical Center, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital.


In addition to our extensive medical and specialty training, most of us are also parents, and apply what we have learned the hard way through our own experiences. We provide comprehensive care from premature babies to young adults.
