Samuel Rosenberg, M.D., a Maryland native, has been practicing medicine in the Washington, D.C., area since he completed his post-graduate medical training in 1991. For the last 27 years, he has served Montgomery County, Frederick County and the surrounding communities through his private practice in pediatric pulmonology. Now, he has joined the Children’s National Hospital team as a member of our pulmonology faculty.
Growing up, Dr. Rosenberg always knew that his life goal was to help people. Given that he also had a natural affinity for science, medicine seemed to be a perfect fit. After completing a combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency program, Dr. Rosenberg found his calling in pediatrics. “I quickly realized that pediatrics was far more rewarding from a personal perspective,” he recalls. “I also became fascinated with diseases of the pulmonary system during my residency and chose to pursue pediatric pulmonology as a career.”
After completing his medical training, Dr. Rosenberg became a staff pediatric pulmonologist at Inova Children’s Hospital for three years before starting his own solo private practice. After spending 27 years in that practice, he has chosen to join the team at Children’s National. “I wanted to be associated with and have access to a diverse and top-notch health care team for my patients and my practice,” he explains. “I would also like to participate in teaching students and trainees, something that has always been of interest to me.”
In his many years as a pediatric pulmonologist, Dr. Rosenberg has found that serving patients and families remains the most rewarding aspect of his work. “My biggest accomplishment is helping children, and at the same time, enjoying my work. I have many patients who have been in my practice since infancy. They have placed their trust in me over the years, and I appreciate that trust so much,” he explains. “I treasure my relationships with my patients and families. Improving their quality of life has always been my primary focus.”
In his new role with Children’s National, Dr. Rosenberg will continue to provide quality care to his patients and families. “I am committed to continuing to practice medicine at the highest level, while at the same time preserving a comfortable child and family-friendly environment,” he says. He will be seeing patients at Children’s National Pulmonary Medicine Rockville and Children’s National Frederick.
