Dr. Jolan Shirley Rhodes, MD

Pediatrician

Professional statement

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.

The first thing I noticed was the staff clearly enjoyed working there and with each other. They are friendly. There was a delay because the suite above them had a leak which affected one of their exam rooms and they apologizedfor the inconvenience. The doctor was very personable and informative. If you need a doctor for your child, she is a pediatrician, I would encourage you to check her out. if you nee travel shots etc... go there

I visited this doctor to receive a Hepatitis A vaccine for travel, but I called the morning of the appointment to inform the office I had a fever as well and wanted that reviewed. An assistant took my temperature and reporteda slight 99.4 fever. This is the only treatment given to me for my reported symptoms of aches, fever, and an intense cough. The doctor came in and gave me travel advice, barely mentioning the fever. I reminded her of the fever temperature her assistant took, and then she relented and examined my ear and mouth. No medication was given for the fever and no diagnosis either. I am in much worse shape three days later and have to schedule an additional doctors appointment in order to find out what is wrong with me. I understand this is a childrens doctor facility, but turning away sick people without a reasonable diagnosis and charging me for an office visit to do so is upsetting. Will not be returning.

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 wehad in regards to parenting to put our anxious minds at ease. We would definitely recommend Dr. Jolan Rhodes.

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.

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 inthe 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.

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.
