Some fun facts:

My  family moved to the United States
 from Kerala, India when I was 5 years old. I am conversant in Malayalam.

I grew up in Alexandria, VA and I went to high school at Thomas Edison High School.

I met my husband while I was in medical school. We now live in Spotsylvania, VA.

We have two sassy daughters who keep us on our toes every moment!

We love hanging out with our large extended family/friends that live in the DC/VA/MD area.

I am one of the founding board members of the Doctor Yum Project, a local non-profit whose mission is to bridge the link between food and your health.

My favorite pastimes are cooking, gardening, traveling and experiencing different cultures with my family.

As far as I can remember I have always wanted to be a pediatrician. I am honored to have the opportunity to care for our future when they are well and sick- it  is very humbling. My passion is promoting preventative care and nutritional counselling for my patients and their families in a supportive and sensitive manner.

I am happily accepting new patients and  look forward to meeting you

Provider of the month!

We are proud of our physicians and nurse practitioners. We want to highlight some fun facts about our providers so that you can get to know them better. Dr. Amisha Armwood is our May provider of the month!

Dr. Amisha Armwood earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania and her medical degree from New York University School of Medicine. She completed her residency at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell in New York City and practiced general pediatrics for four years before moving to Virginia. Dr. Armwood practices primarily at our Lorton location.

Some fun facts:

My husband and I met in D.C. years ago, moved to NYC for a while, and are now settled in Virginia.

We have two young children who are full of energy and make me laugh every day.

I have a miniature Australian Shepherd who, if he had it his way, would rather sunbathe by a window than take a walk.

I spend most of my free time with my family — exploring our neighborhood, museums, and parks.

I love practicing pediatrics because I thrive on providing support, encouragement, and evidenced-based care for families when children are both well and sick. I am particularly interested in breastfeeding and healthy eating.

I am happily accepting new patients and can’t wait to meet you!

Welcome to our new Lactation Consultant!

We are excited to announce that we now have a certified lactation consultant on staff! Ashlee Brown will have appointments at our Lorton location on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! To learn a little bit more about Ashlee, keep reading.

“First and foremost, I’m a wife and a mom to two sons. We spend a ton of time outside! I’m also Kentucky native who graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 2013 with my BS in Biology. Since moving to Virginia in 2017, I have completed 90 hours of breastfeeding education, and I just finished a 500 hour clinical internship program in lactation at Prince William Medical Center in Manassas. There, I worked with four IBCLCs and gained both inpatient and outpatient experience. During my year at the hospital, I also worked as a health educator teaching childbirth, newborn care, breastfeeding, and infant CPR classes. Navigating the early postpartum period can be hard for parents, so I want to do everything I can to make it a little easier for them. That’s why I’m so excited to be a part of the ALL Pediatrics team!”
