“My goal in establishing this solo practice is to provide excellent, comprehensive care for children and adolescents with a personal touch that is often not felt in a group practice setting. My experience as a general pediatrician along with the experience I have gained in raising three children of my own gives me the perspective and judgment needed to create such a practice.”



Gail Warner M.D. F.A.A.P. founded Growth and Wellness Pediatrics in December 2015. Previously, she practiced as a pediatrician in a private practice in Rockville, Maryland, from 1999 until 2015. She serves patients ages 0-22 years old. Dr. Warner grew up in Montgomery County, Maryland, and graduated from Walt Whitman High School. She received her undergraduate degree from Tufts University where she majored in child development. She attended medical school at the University of Maryland, graduating in 1995, and completed her Pediatrics residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

During her training, she had the opportunity to practice medicine internationally working in hospitals in Kampala, Uganda, and in Jerusalem.
