My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a primary care physician practicing in a personalized healthcare model, similar to a concierge model, with an emphasis on prevention, wellness and early detection. As a family physician, I see children and make rounds with my patients admitted to INOVA Alexandria Hospital. My practice is located in Alexandria, Virginia and serves the DC Metro area, including Springfield, Fairfax, Alexandria and Arlington, as well as surrounding areas in Maryland.

My practice philosophy is focused on getting to know and understand my patients as best I can to help guide them through the maze of our current healthcare system. This commitment involves partnering with patients and continually discussing their health concerns and lifestyle choices. As a private doctor, I like to emphasize the power of the individual and to help him or her using natural treatments (more exercise, stress management, healthier diet and weight management) rather than pharmaceuticals when possible.

I have been named to the list of Best Doctors in America® for 18 consecutive years.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Wohler

from Carolyn in VA March 21, 2020 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

Dr. Brett Wohler has been my physician for almost 30 years. When he decided to join MDVIP there was no question in my mind about joining MDVIP to remain his patient. I have had absolutely outstanding care from Dr. Wohler for my chronic illnesses (diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, thyroid, and sinus/allergies) and also for the occasions when I have had acute illness. His excellent… See more

from John in VA March 20, 2020 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

from Richard in VA February 29, 2020 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

In all kinds of situations, through several years of ambulance moves and emergency surgeries, Dr. Wohler has been there when I needed him. He even showed up at the hospital to visit before critical surgery. Way above and beyond. He has been through emails when he was on vacation, and renewing prescriptions when I was on vacation. He has inspired confidence openly discussing changes in… See more

from Anne in VA February 29, 2020 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

Dr. Wohler is an excellent doctor. He has improved my health, and early on discovered a thyroid deficiency that had escaped every other doctor. Also, I went through a bad depression and he helped me through it and was very supportive when I wanted to get off the antidepressants, which I eventually did with his guidance. I'm so happy I found him!

Waist circumference can influence your cholesterol levels

As a family physician in Alexandria, Virginia, I’m routinely asked by patients, “What should I eat to lower my cholesterol?”

It’s an important question. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance in all your cells. When you have too much of it, it can stick to the lining of your blood… See more

You probably need more fruits and vegetables in your diet for fiber.

The supplement aisle in grocery stores is tempting, isn’t it? The labels on the backs of the bottles would have you believe that for just a few dollars, you could take a pill that improves a huge range of symptoms – or just your overall health. 

I have a feeling you know the bad “news” I… See more

4 Surprising Summer Health Hazards - And How to Avoid Them

Summer is right around the corner, and for a lot of us that means a vacation is in store. Will you head to the beach? Travel abroad? Pop a tent at a nearby campsite? 

You’re probably not thinking about summer vacation health hazards as you plan, pack or travel. Unfortunately, they happen… See more

good sleep hygiene tips

Like most family physicians, I talk about sleep a lot with my patients. They tell me they can’t fall asleep or stay asleep or that they don’t feel refreshed when they wake up from sleep. Usually, these patients – especially those older than 65 – would like either a prescription for sleep… See more
