I love serving as a physician.
Since 2001, I have been a primary care physician in Northern Virginia for patients age 16 and older, focusing on mental wellness and women’s health, as well as helping patients prevent heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and frankly, from dying too young. I treat those with eating disorders who are 12 and older. Through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals, I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and am the Medical Liaison to our area’s local chapter. Because it is important to me, I also teach medical students from Georgetown University School of Medicine with an emphasis on the humanistic side of doctoring.
In order to provide the kind of care that you deserve, I will always spend the time to understand you and how you are feeling as well as answer all of your questions. My practice is small so that we can develop the relationship that best serves you.
Medical appointments have evolved. I am always here to see you for the problems that must be seen in person; but not every problem requires spending time traveling to a doctor’s office. So, I have embraced telemedicine as a safe and efficient care option.
Our visit does not end with the conclusion of the appointment. I am regularly in touch with your other healthcare providers as I am a strong believer in treatment teams working together. You do not need an appointment to ask follow-up medical questions; when you text or email our office, we will get back to you promptly. But please understand, for urgent questions you must call and speak with us directly.
As a physician, your physician, I look forward to being with you for the easy stuff and the hard stuff, for the fun stuff and the sad stuff and for making sure that you are here, mentally and physically, for all of the stuff in between.
