Health System: and in 2011, we became part of Children's National Ambulatory Care division.
Dr. Edward Feroli and Dr. Gordon Mella retired in June 2009 and Dr. Frank Pedreira retired in December 2011; however given the stellar reputation and years of service they have provided to the community we realize they will never truly be replaced. However
