News & Events
Because our physicians work, live and give back to the local community, they are dedicated to improving the health of those who live there as well.
As a result, doctors Chu, Ghafouri, Taheri and Yazdani were named among the "Top Docs" in Washingtonian Magazine's March 2010 issue. Additionally, our physicians have consistently been named among the best in cardiology in Northern Virginia magazine.
The reasons behind these honors are numerous, from the fact that our interventional cardiologists perform procedures that no one else in the region does, to the convenience of our satellite locations. Additionally, our emphasis on research means our physicians work together to provide the most advanced care, giving our patients access to innovative, new treatment options.
