“My extended family (me, my wife, two kids, & parents-in-law) has been with Northern Virginia Family Practice Associates for 25 years. We are totally delighted with the kind, caring, super-competent medical care and have never even considered going anywhere else. And while the medical care is (of course) the most important thing, the administrative side of the group is wonderful as well: efficient, detail-oriented, and always on-time. Five stars seems like too little. Thanks, NVFPA!”
Dr. Elizabeth Cilenti is accepting new patients.
What is Med/Peds?
I am excited to bring my experience in both internal medicine and pediatrics (also known as “Med-Peds”) to NVFP. Since many people are unfamiliar with the specialty I should explain how it’s prepared me to provide comprehensive care for all ages – from newborns to the geriatric patient. While most primary care physicians will complete a three-year program in family medicine, internal medicine, or pediatrics, I couldn’t decide on just one – so I pursued a dual training program! I spent four busy years alternating training in internal medicine and pediatrics, leading to board certification in both specialties. I’ve since then spent over a decade practicing both.
I’m thankful for the unique perspective that training in both disciplines brings. As just one example, my training in internal medicine with a focus on managing multiple chronic conditions in adults helps me better care for children who have special needs or chronic conditions, and my training in pediatrics brings a focus on education and anticipatory guidance that helps me explain to adult patients what to expect with healthy aging or when we find a new diagnosis. I look forward to using this perspective here at NVFP to keep you and your families healthy!
