About WIP

An intentionally small practice

Why is the practice intentionally small?  So that every infant, child, and young adult receives exceptional and individualized care. With a true commitment to caring for the whole child, WIP is a different kind of pediatrics practice where families can grow and thrive throughout the early years.

Individualized Care

At WIP, we want every family and patient to feel at home, and so we care for your child as if they were our own. Every patient has their individual needs that change over time. Your child will continue to grow well into their college years – and WIP will be at your side the whole way.

International Know-How

Based in the Washington, D.C. area, it is natural that a large number of our families come from outside of the United States.  Dr. Sabine and the WIP staff are well versed in helping families make the transition  – from school forms and vaccines to understanding the cultural norms of raising a family in the U.S.. 

Comprehensive Care

WIP cares for the physical, social, and mental health of children from birth to young adulthood.  

From preventive health care, to sick-child visits, to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and/or chronic diseases – we will be there with you and your child.  

What Our Families Say About Us…

Valeska and Johannes, parents

I am so happy to have found Dr. Sabine! She was such a help, when we recently moved to D.C. especially since she speaks German,too! I appreciate her availability and support day or night, weekdays or weekends. But the most important thing is, that my little girls love her and are not afraid of visits. Dr. Sabine is a very experienced pediatrician and I cannot recommend her highly enough!
