“As a provider I believe the practice of medicine is a delicate balance combining the best science and critical thinking with a healthy partnership between doctor and patient. I have always felt that time spent listening to your concerns, thinking about the issues that you bring to me, and then developing solutions together is the essence of the doctor-patient relationship. This ultimately results in the best medicine, achieving the best outcomes.
Your medical care should be a form of security, something tangible you can count on in the face of uncertainty. In our concierge medicine practice, we are your personal health providers. We have the gift of time to work together as healthcare partners to help you feel your best and live your life to its fullest.”

“Since childhood, I have been fascinated with science and nutrition, and the impact they have on health and wellbeing. This interest led me to pursue a BSN, and later a MS in the family nurse practitioner program at Georgetown University. After several years in the hospital, I began work as a nurse practitioner in 1998, and have been with Family Healthcare since 2001. It has been an honor and a privilege to know patients over the years, and I greatly enjoy the ability to care for families across generations in a family practice setting.
I take great pride in the level of patient care we provide here at Family Healthcare of Fairfax. I believe the provision of excellent healthcare requires not just scientific knowledge, but also thorough and individual attention to each unique patient. As a provider I love interacting with patients, young and old, and the strong relationships that develop as a result.
It remains our mission as your health providers to promote and optimize the health of all individuals, and it has been heartening to see the recent progress towards this goal. We look forward to partnering with you in this in the coming year.”
