Meet our team at Forest Hill Pediatrics! Please take a few moments to learn about our skilled practitioners and our friendly, nurturing staff.
At Forest Hill Pediatrics, we consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for children. Most of us are parents ourselves, so we strive to be understanding and available to the families we are privileged to serve. We are honored that you have chosen us as your child's primary medical provider and are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care and service that we can provide you and your family.
A vital part of our service to children begins with our outstanding staff who works hard to manage and maintain a professional, caring and supportive environment for our patients in a timely manner. Our doctors are lifelong learners. Not only have they received advanced medical training in pediatrics, they continually pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest in child health care.
Your child's health is as important to us as it is to you. We look forward to providing you with excellent medical care your child deserves.
As the founder of Forest Hill Pediatrics (FHP), Dr. Grace’s vision for establishing a family-oriented practice began long before its inception. The third of 10 children, Dr. Grace grew up caring for her younger siblings. Her experiences in young adulthood, paired with the love of science she discovered in her educational career ultimately inspired her to pursue a profession in pediatrics. With a love for listening and helping her patients live healthy lives from infancy through adulthood, Dr. Grace cultivated her career at Makerere University Medical School in Uganda, and completed her Pediatric Training at Wake Forest University Medical Center and Children’s National Medical Center.
Having joined the FHP family in 2016, Dr. Fridberg joined our team as a pediatric specialist from Havre De Grace, Maryland. With a passion for helping children and families grow, Dr. Fridberg’s approach stems from a seasoned perspective acquired from years of experience in the field. A Harford County native, Dr. Fridberg graduated from the University Of Maryland School of Medicine, enabling her to combine her love of science with her passion for working with and helping families.
