My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a primary care physician practicing in a personalized healthcare 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. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. 

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

Dr. Brett Wohler is always there when I call for an appointment, he always listen to me and answer all my question, and determined to find out my problem.

from Gerardo in VA February 11, 2024 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

Dr. Wohler cares about me and my family, and thus does his best taking care of my well-being. He is quick to answer phone calls that serve to ease anxieties. He visited me in the hospital when I had to undergo an unexpected appendectomy, and he was quickly on top of what had been going on. He also knows his science. He also cares for my wife, whom he recommended to go to the ER when she… See more

from Wendy in VA January 22, 2024 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

I have been Dr. Brett Wohler's patient for a number of years and have never felt safer or more cared for, not only physically but also in overall well-being.

Sonja and I are grateful for and value our relationship with Brett who has been a good and reassuring presence in our lives for many years. He shows his genuine caring as he calmly takes time to listen, inquire, explain, follow-up, recommend, support, respond to email questions.

from Carolyn in VA January 18, 2024 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

Dr. Brett Wohler is a truly exceptional physician. He has provided outstanding medical care for me for over 30 years. An event that happened in August 2022 stands out as particularly meaningful in his care for me, and exhibits how he cares for his patients.
I was admitted to the Emergency Department of a local hospital on a Sunday morning for a 2nd degree heart block. (Dr. Wohler was… See more

Dr. Wohler has been my physician for about 30 years. When he converted to the MDVIP system, there was no question that I would join MDVIP to keep him has my physician. Although I am retired and this is an expense each year, it has to be a priority -- if you don't have your health, you can't help yourself or others, and in my opinion, Dr. Wohler and MDVIP have played and continue to… See more

from Wendy in VA December 14, 2022 for Brett A. Wohler, MD

As I get older, I face more and more many unwelcome 'events' that life throws at me. It sometimes feels like I'm "in the ring" - the boxing ring that is. And the person that keeps me going is Dr. Brett Wohler. He is in my corner - cheering me on, giving me the tools, physically and mentally, to take on the tough challenges, to face my fears. I'm recovering from… 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

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
