“As a pediatrician, I firmly believe I am not only the child’s but the family’s doctor; you can’t really separate the two. This is especially true in the beginning. Hopefully, as my patients grow older, they will see that I am their ‘doc’, there for them as they make their journey to adulthood.”

Biography

After completing a Bachelor of Arts in biology at Western Maryland College in 1983 (now known as McDaniel College), Dr. Wandishin moved on to study medicine at the University of Maryland. Wanting to stay in Maryland, she then moved to Sinai Hospital of Baltimore to complete an internship and residency in pediatrics after graduating in 1987 with a Doctorate in Medicine. She was chief resident at Sinai from 1989 to 1990.

Upon completion of training, she accepted a position practicing general pediatrics at Valley Pediatrics in Owings Mills and remained there until the fall of 1992. With the birth of her first child, Dr. Wandishin decided to work part-time as an attending doctor in the pediatric emergency room at Sinai Hospital, which she did from 1993 until 1994. She was then offered a position at Owings Mills Pediatrics and began practicing there in September 1994. She is still practicing at Owings Mills Pediatrics almost 21 years later in general pediatrics, continuing to see patients from birth to age 21, and continuing to be amazed and receive joy from the many children and their families that are seen.

Although she did not go on for more specialized training, she has over the years developed interests in family/child interactions, adolescent medicine, and weight issues in children and teens. She is the pediatric advisor at several area preschools and has been an active volunteer at her children’s schools over the years.
