About Us

About the Medical Clinic


We started our practice in late 2022 to provide the greater Washington DC metro area with best in class endocrinology service and care. Since opening we have seen incredibly strong traction with the community, validating our approach to patient care as one of a joint partnership.

Starting in mid-2024, we shifted away from the constraints placed on us by insurances to a direct specialty care model where will spend significantly more time with patients to help them on their journey to endocrine health. Being direct care, we will be out-of-network with all insurances. We also recognized there is a severely underserved population of women and their health, which we have a strong focus on serving.
