My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being a primary care physician trusted with the care of my patients is a privilege and honor that I hold sacred. I am proud to serve the residents of Alexandria, Virginia, and the surrounding communities, including Northern Virginia and D.C. I strive to forge a relationship with my patients based on empathy, deeper listening and compassion. Together, we can work to better improve physical and mental well-being. 

My goal is to provide more personalized medical care in a professional, peaceful and unhurried space. Consultations take place in a private, relaxing meeting room, not in an exam room like many traditional offices. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medical practices. My office also offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments with minimal wait time.

I pride myself on being a diagnostician who has more time to cover health concerns with you. I am fortunate to have a network of trusted specialists to whom I refer to assist my patients.  

I seek to optimize wellness and prevention through a more personalized program focused on diet and exercise. I have a special interest in providing risk assessments and treatment recommendations for diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke prevention. I enjoy working with patients of all ages.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Gehring

Dr Gehring is always responsive to any issues I have with understanding and quick resolution. He always has time to give and a bedside manner of concern and caring for his patients. He is the best! Fortunately, I experience good health at this time and would not want to be in the care of anyone else. He’s gracious, professional and really cares about his patients. Thank you, Dr Gehring, for… See more

I chose to go to see Dr. Gehring at age 70. He had been recommended by a couple who have been friends for over 20 years and who both are patients of his. After talking with them, I realized that at my age, I should move beyond the cursory physical examinations I had been getting every year for decades. I felt that I needed a doctor and a practice where the tests I took were more thorough… See more
