My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your private doctor is to partner with you and to create a personalized healthcare plan to effectively treat your current health problems and to prevent new ones. I understand and celebrate that internal medicine patients have specific medical needs and desire a unique path to better health. I will work with you each step of the way to assist you with making informed decisions toward achieving your goals – whether it is running your first marathon, improving your nutrition or reducing your use of medication.

With nearly 25 years of practicing medicine in the community, I have relationships with many specialists to help with you and your unique needs. I may be an internal medicine doctor, but I also have interests in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and preventive medicine. I have gone from a physician that was trained to cure your illness and tackle your diseases to one who recognizes that true health comes from preventing disease from developing.

Elma and I have been with Dr. McNamara for a very long time. Luckily, we are healthy (we jokingly say to Dr. McNamara that we are his easiest patients) but what we like the most is how practical and logical he is and how he would love nothing more than to keep us off any medications.

Elma and I are avid travelers and we travel to many exotic places. So, multiple times we asked Dr.… See more

from Allen in MD March 11, 2020 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

At my first meeting with Dr. McNamara I was hoping he could do a miracle. I had chest pains for 20 years with three different surgeries that did nothing to alleviate any pain. So I went to ask him for anything that could help--maybe even some happy pills.

However, after checking me out, he told me that there was nothing wrong with me and that I should deal with the pain. I thought I was… See more

from Arthur in MD March 11, 2020 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

I am extremely grateful for the outstanding care that you have provided during my bouts with pneumonia, empyema, and chronic kidney issues. I am certain that I would not be alive today if it were not for your focused dedication and excellent service. You are an amazing physician and a fine human being and I can't thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and dedicated availability. I… See more

Dr. Mc - As you know so far so good with my health. But it is so reassuring to know you are their in my corner keeping an eye on things. Also appreciate all the important things you do - helping with advice whether about me or a family member. Thanks for all you do! 

from Larry in MD March 10, 2020 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

A decade ago I saw Dr M for my annual physical. He had with him a Georgetown medical student, who was learning how to give physicals. Tom asked if the student could stay and learn, and I said great.

As Tom was poking and prodding, he said, you have something on your throat, it may be something serious, it may something trivial, but in any case it needs to be checked out by a… See more

from James in MD March 10, 2020 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

I have no singular spectacular event during the about 30 years that Dr. McNamara has been my physician, both in recent years with MDVIP and well before that, for which I so value him. Rather, he has consistently helped improve my lift in so many ways through his sage diagnostic skills and knowledgeable advise on good health habits and sticking to reasonable expectations for long term goals.… See more

from Vincent March 27, 2018 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

Doctor Thomas McNamara has been my physician since I moved to Maryland. (Before that time because of his reputation I referred my patients and members of my family to him whenever they were moving to southern Maryland.) He has kept me in excellent health to my present age (92). His training was at the best centers.
He has a congenial manner and makes sure that a patient understands… See more

from Sudhir in MD March 17, 2018 for Thomas J. McNamara, MD

I dont think I can say enough good things about Dr McNamara as a doctor and an individual. He has been my doctor for about 20 years and I have never seen another doctor who has cared so much about my well being. He has demonstrated an immense amount of patience with patients like me who want to better understand both the diagnosis and prescribed treatments. In fact, when Dr McNamara left his… See more
