Michelle Schall, C.P.N.P.

  • She treats both of my children now. When my son was 8 months old we took him to Patients First for wheezing. They said it was nothing. Brought my son into Annapolis Pediatrics the next day and Dr. Schall saw him and was very concerned about his breathing. She told us to get X-rays, even made room for us to come back after they were complete so that we could go over the results. Turns out he had pneumonia in both lungs. If it wasn't for her caring about our son, who knows what would have happened. I am truly blessed to have her as our children's provider. We moved to Waldorf and refuse to change because we love her so much!
