Qualifications and Experience
I am Board Certified In Pediatrics . I have been in private practice for 28 years, served as the Chairman of the Department Of Pediatrics at Providence Hospital from 1988 to 1996. I practice general pediatrics, which means I diagnose and treat most of the disease of children from birth to age 21 with referrall to specialist when the need arise. many of the common lab test are performed in our office and the results are available immediately. This prevent the patients from having to travel to another location to have lab services performed. As a mother of 3 children of my own I realize the difficulty of travel from place to place with sick children. I try to make medical care to my patients as convenient as possible. The first hour of each morning Monday through Friday is set aside for emergency walk in patients. No appointment is necessary. If your child becomes sick during the night bring the child to the office in the morning between 7:30 and 8:30 am. Appointment are seen starting at 9:45 am . If available I try to give the first dose of medication in the office to get treatment started right away and the patient on the way to recovery. Routine check-ups including school, camp and sports physical are scheduled as needed, usually the same day or within a few days. The same day if urgently needed . I perform Hearing testing with the new OAE hearing screener for children as young as newborns is available. I also use a state of the art Vision screener to pick up some eye diseases the standard vision screener may miss. Office Hours are 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Thursday 7:30 am to 12 noon on Friday. Most insurances are accepted, Aetna, Carefirst Blue Cross, Blue Choice, Amerigroup, Americhoice United Health care, Teamsters, Priority Partners, Marlands Physicians Care, Tricare, most government plans, Maryland Medicaid, self pay.

She was very thorough with her examination, professional and sweet with our baby. She knew what she was doing and reassured us that we were doing everything right as new parents. She took the time to answer all the questions we had in regards to parenting to put our anxious minds at ease. We would definitely recommend Dr. Jolan Rhodes.
My first visit was great. Everyone was friendly and kind and the wait time was less than 30 min. I went again today and was seen right away. It was great.
The doctor was very nice and above all she actually appeared to care which is hard to find these days

She has been the best. Very professional. Very caring. Like a caring mother.
Everything was good
I went to Dr. Rhodes from when I was born til 12 years old. My mom and I absolutely adored her. Now that I have had my own child recently, she's still the same attentive and caring doctor I knew of her to be when I was younger.
She was very good at listening and interacting with our child. She also didn't shame or otherwise make us feel bad for our choices to delay vaccination and helped us come up with a staggered schedule to get ready for school.
Dr. Rhodes is very caring and thoughtful. She solves problems and follows up great. Her staff is always professional and kind.
I love taking my kids to Dr Rhodes. Staffs are courteous and the Doctors are very knowledgeable.
She is best and was great and understanding!!
I arrived to my appointment 5 mins before at 8:40 am I told the receptionist that I had an appointment and she let somebody who had an appointment that arrived an hour after me be seeing first. I was told in the back that she put me as a walk in (it was written on their board) and was there until 11:30am. I guess they don't validate the online appointments because she even asked me if I did the appointment online.
Dr. Rhodes is amazing with my girls. No, matter when we go she always answer any questions I have even if it is not related to the visit. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Great. I wish the entire time there is 30 min
I always enjoy my visit there...the office staff is so pleasant, friendly and caring...Dr. Rhodes and her team is second to none.
The visit was a professional, smooth and efficient transition from the waiting room to the exam room through the end of the visit. The staff was polite and answered my questions and made a rushed appointment painless. Awesome!

My visit to dr Rhodes was an remarkable experience . To begin with her receptionist they were welcoming had everything ready for my appointment for me that set the bar for my entire visit. Dr Rhodes leaves me with no cause for pause she explain to point I leave her office at ease . Great job guys.
Receptionist was very professional acknowledging our arrival and getting info quickly. Doctor's were both top notch showing interest in my child's overall health and well being and taking time to answer all questions. The 'nurses' were average and not particularly warm or friendly but did their jobs.

I came to the office for vaccines for my international trip. My visit was very pleasant. I was able to come in and been seen right away. I loved that i could fill out the paperwork online before my visit so i wasn't bogged down with filling paperwork in the waiting area. All of the staff were very pleasant, respectful, and kind. i would highly recommend visiting this office. It was clean and a great atmosphere. Even after the doctor seen me I had one question and the nurse grabbed her for me right away. Overall I would recommend this office for Travel Vaccinations and if I had children, I would definitely take them to this practice.
My son has been attended by Dr. Rhodes for 15 years. He loves her and she has been a great experience for how a doctor should treat their patients. She will be the standard for how he judges doctors when he becomes an adult. Thanks Dr. Rhodes.
Staff is friendly nice place My Daughter is a new Patient and This is her pediatrician for now on ??
Dr. Tuere Hughes was professional and very knowledgeable. The visit was comfortable and quite informative. I would definitely recommend the Dr. to others traveling internationally and in need of vaccinations.
I never met Dr.Rhodes but I did have a pleasant experience with Dr. Hughes. She was sweet and so was the staff. I will definitely recommend this Vaccine center in the future.
She was very informative.
Great new patient visit!!! Staff were friendly and professional!!!!
Very professional and experienced!!!
Dr Rhodes is by far one of the best doctors I have ever met. I too am a health care professional and admire how she takes the time to engage my kids and make us feel like she is just as happy to see us as we are to see her. She has been my kids' pediatrician for 11 years now and we will continue to be her patients for years to come!
