About the Provider

Nina Scribanu, MD, is a pediatrician specializing in clinical genetics and developmental pediatrics. Dr. Scribanu focuses on the areas of early detection of developmental disabilities in infants and children, newborn screening, and health and developmental issues in children at environmental risk, specifically with adoption and foster care. Physicians, schools and therapists also refer children with genetic issues, delayed development, autism and behavioral issues to Dr. Scribanu for diagnostic services.

Dr. Scribanu considers herself an advocate for children with disabilities. She uses her expertise to help children and their families access the services and treatment they need to be as functional as possible. She works to empower families to make changes, while educating the community about issues that affect children with disabilities.

Dr. Scribanu is also an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, where she established and directed the Division of Clinical Genetics. During her long tenure at MedStar Georgetown, Dr. Scribanu, a Fulbright scholar, has contributed significantly to teaching the next generation of physicians. She has also trained national and international health care providers in genetics and developmental disabilities through federal grants and non-governmental organizational funding.

She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics committee on adoption and foster care, and has been a member of several Washington, D.C., mayoral advisory committees, including the committee on developmental disabilities and maternal child health.
