About Us

The Doctors and Staff of South Riding Pediatrics welcome you to our website. In Reston we have been serving the community for over 40 years, and in that same tradition South Riding Pediatrics has been serving South Riding families for 20 years.

This website is your link to us, giving you all the information you may need about our doctors, locations, insurance and more. The benefit of our years of experience are online, and at your convenience. We will be adding new and improved features as often as we can, but please let us know if there is anything we can add to our website to make it better!

Dr. John Farrell Jr. M.D. and his staff of fellow doctors, have routinely garnered the praise of their toughest critics, their patients.

Since 1999, our physicians have frequently been named in our area’s annual “Top Doctors” lists, including Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine.

Embracing the health of your family from birth to college, South Riding Pediatrics provides care today for your child’s tomorrow!
