Coastal Style has once again recognized the exceptional talent of Dr. Maria Childers-Reed. In an extraordinary achievement, Dr. Childers-Reed has been awarded Best Pediatrician by Coastal Style for the third consecutive time. This remarkable feat is a testament to her unwavering commitment to the well-being of children and families she serves.

When Dr. Maria Childers-Reed initially launched her pediatric practice under the Atracare brand, she never imagined that it would grow to such heights. Her primary goal has always been to provide top-notch care to as many children as possible. As her reputation spread, the demand for her expertise increased, leading to the expansion of her staff to four providers and five medical assistants to accommodate the growing number of patients.

This year, Dr. Childers-Reed continued her dedication to her patients by continuing ancillary services such as Lactation Consulting, Mental Health, and Postpartum Depression support for families. She firmly believes that “patients need a central home for medical services that allows them to understand and control their well-being.” Patients who visit her practice appreciate the ease of access and leave with a sense of relief, knowing that their questions have been addressed. It is this patient satisfaction that fuels her enduring passion for medicine.

Dr. Childers-Reed’s journey to Coastal Delaware was inspired during a family trip, and in 2011, she made the move to Lewes. With a vision to provide highly skilled and modern medical treatment to local children, she collaborated with Aspira Health to build a cutting-edge pediatric clinic. Her practice offers a “one-stop shop” for her patients, providing convenience and comprehensive care, including in-house lab tests, x-ray imaging, and the distribution of essential medications and antibiotics.
