About

Bio

We are a health care practice in Washington, DC and McLean, Virginia promoting integrative medicine strategies to improve health. We have been leaders in medically diverse care for nearly three decades. In doing this we have been ahead of the curve and, sometimes, the odd-doctor-out, something we don’t mind. We don’t conduct our practice this way for the fun of it, even though it is incredibly fun. We practice this way because we believe it is the right thing to do. We believe that health is something to be cared for rather than owned. And we strongly believe in healthcare that puts patients front and center and squarely in the driver’s seat. We recognize that medical care is often what is needed when health care fails. We are not just workers in the field of medicine; we are providers of care across the spectrum of wellness and illness making a difference. We believe that the best health care system is made by the collaboration and integration of a variety of evidence-based health systems with well-trained providers from different disciplines as well as all the non-provider professionals involved with health care, including health system engineers, programmers, designers and all the people who give of their time, talent, and energy to improve health. And we believe that together, with this in mind, we can continue to provide quality care for the benefit of the individual and for the betterment of healthcare so that this cause continues to serve the greater good.
