Family medicine is the medical specialty that provides continuing and comprehensive healthcare for the individual and family. The scope of family practice encompasses all ages and genders, each organ system and every disease entity.
We are a part of the Fairfax Family Practice Centers, which have many offices throughout Northern Virginia. All of our physicians are dedicated to providing medical care that is specifically tailored to your needs and the needs of your family.
