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.

from Anne March 29, 2017 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

Thanks to Dr. Wohler, I'm enjoying the best health I've had in more than 30 years. Among the many things he has done for me is to uncover a thyroid deficiency, which I had never suffered from before but which is, I've heard, something that can develop with age. I have also had serious problems with depression for more than 10 years, and he has handled that very skillfully, so… See more

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

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?

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
