Welcome to Chesapeake Pediatrics
We will be closed until noon today, Tuesday August 4th due to tornado warnings from storm Isaiah. Stay safe.
We continue to be open everyday of the week so that we are available to you for all of your medical needs, but our hours may vary day to day based on demand.
We will no longer offer walk-in hours from 8-9 am, but we will be open everyday starting at 8:30 am for appointments only. You will be able to get a same day appointment if needed.
We require everyone, parents and children included, who arrives for an appointment inside or curbside, must wear a face covering . We can not provide face masks, so if you arrive without a face covering, you will have to reschedule your appointment.
We are available to you for different types of appointments: 1. Curbside visits 2. Office visits and 3. Telemedicine visits
Curbside visits are in our private outdoor area if you prefer to be seen outside. For curbside visits, we will require that you remain in your car and call for check-in. We will maintain the one parent only during a visit at our curbside area.
For appointments inside of the office, once you arrive to the parking lot, you will call the front desk to check in while you remain in your car. When you are ready to be seen for your appointment, the front desk will call back your phone to have you enter the building. You will be escorted directly to an exam room or our new indoor “curbside” room by the nurse. We are allowing only one parent inside the building during the visit.
Telemedicine visits are via FACETIME or WHATSAPP. If you choose to make a televisit via one of these platforms, you will still need to call the front desk to make an appointment and you will be given an appointment time with other instructions.
We are taking every precautionary measure to ensure the safety of you, your child, and our staff. We continue to sanitize between patients and ask that you do your part to keep everyone safe too. Please continue to take the necessary precautions inside and outside of our office. Wash your hands, wear a face covering, and maximize social distancing.
Please continue to adhere to the coronavirus recommendations.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during these unusual times.

Our pediatricians, Dr. Coyner & Dr. Jobes, and our pediatric nurse practitioner, Lindsay Ward, are proud to serve the Annapolis community at one of the oldest pediatric practices in Annapolis, Maryland.
It was originally founded in the 1960’s by Dr. Frank Kopack, Dr. Perry Shelton, and Dr. Kenneth Hoffman. The practice maintains the personal touch that they all inspired.
For over 50 years, Chesapeake Pediatrics has provided superior healthcare to infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. We are proud to serve generations of families caring for children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of former patients!
We have remained small providing access to same day appointments without long waits. We are the only practice that answers the phone with a staff member, not an automated answering menu.
Dr. Coyner, Dr. Jobes, & Lindsay Ward are available to address your concerns 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our goal is to provide excellent pediatric care in a friendly environment with a common sense approach.
