My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a 40 year resident of Northern Virginia, I have seen the Washington D.C. area transform from a relatively small, tranquil place to a sprawling regional metropolis seemingly always on the go. In this fast paced environment, the challenge to stay healthy can seem daunting and all too often our commitment to health becomes a lower priority.

As your MDVIP Family Physician, I hope to provide a haven where we can slow down the hectic pace for a bit and get back to how medicine used to be practiced, by focusing on you and your unique medical needs. Whether you are looking to prevent future illness or receive care for acute or chronic problems, I will bring my knowledge, experience and insight together in a caring and compassionate environment where your health is elevated to the highest priority.

My family practice is located in the Springfield area just off I-495 and draws patients throughout Northern Virginia, including Franconia, Kingstowne, Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax as well as patients from Maryland and the District. In addition to providing internal medicine and pediatric care, my special interests include asthma and allergies, dermatology, travel and preventive medicine. I see chidren under age 26 at no additional membership charge.

from Yndira in VA October 9, 2014 for W. James Pettit, MD

Dr Pettit is one of the nicest caring doctors I know. As a nurse, I am surrounded by doctors daily. Most do not show the care that Dr Pettit does. He gives me great referrals when needed, he answers my emails in a timely manner. He knows my family by name. I am grateful to have Dr Pettit as my family doctor.

from Dexter in VA February 19, 2014 for W. James Pettit, MD

I have known Dr. Pettit for more than 14 years. Throughout my service in the military and a short tour in Germany. He has always found time to help me when I am in need.
