My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Developing a trusted partnership in wellness between doctor and patient is at the core of my MDVIP practice. In a welcoming office environment, patient visits will be unhurried to allow sufficient time to listen and attend to your health concerns. This enables me to more completely incorporate your viewpoint, needs and goals; whether we are working toward maintaining a healthy life-style or discussing the diagnosis and treatment of an acute or chronic medical condition. I am dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and personal primary care service available. I strive to assist you in navigating our country's complex medical system and I will steadily encourage you to be an active participant and partner in optimizing your health.

I very much appreciate the advice Dr. McConnell has given me regarding my husband's medical problems. I offer an important example of her help. My husband had what we thought was am emergency medical problem in France and we spent two weekend days at a hospital in Avignon. On Monday, I called Dr. McConnell to bring her up to date on what had happened to my husband and to ask if she… See more

Dr McConnell has been my primary physician for about 10 years now. I have a history of cardiovascular disease in my family and she has done a great job of getting my blood pressure and cholesterol levels down to healthy levels. Equally importantly, she has always treated with courtesy, respect, and genuine concern for my health and well being. She's always on time and always has a… See more

SINCE AN EARLY AGE I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FIERCELY INDEPENDENT AND SELF RELIENT. THIS SERVED ME WELL WHEN WIDOWED AT 32 WITH 3 VERY YOUNG CHILDREN, I HAD TO ASSUME THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RAISING THEM ON MY OWN WITH LITTLE TO NO SUPPORT. HOWEVER, IT ALSO MEANT THAT I HAD NOT DEVELOPED ANY RELATIONSHIPS TO SHARE CONCERNS BEYOND A THIN VENEER. NOW IN MY MID SEVENTIES, WITH HEALTH CONCERNS THAT I… See more

Dear Dr. McConnell,
Thank you so much for always listening to me and all the support you have given me over the last 14 months; you always had time for me.
Very grateful,

I have known Dr. McConnell for over 15 years. As well as being an exceptional Doctor, she has always been able to see me in an emergency when I needed to be seen. She is very compassionate and genuinely cares about her patient. The only Dr. I know who gives you a hug after a visit. That really makes me feel good.

Today, Oct. 19th. She has invited any of her patients & guests to… See more

Congratulations.
Dr. McConnell and her staff are a fabulous team. I know I am well cared for as a patient and a person.
While chatting with my favorite pharmacist, Miriam, the topic of the best doctors to recommend came up. Dr. McConnell was first on my list and why. Miriam agreed. She said her staff is always a pleasure to work with on her end as well.

from Ingrid in DC October 9, 2014 for Lila T. McConnell, MD

I have always appreciated Dr. McConnell's service with and without MDVIP over a long period of time.

from MARY ELIZABETH ( BETTY) in MD October 8, 2014 for Lila T. McConnell, MD

Under doctor McConnells care I am confident that I am in hands of a doctor who truly cares about her patients. But what does that do for the patient? Most doctors really care about their patients. The difference is that this care is combined with the ability to quickly diagnose a problem, give directions for care, and provide recommendations for the proper specialist when needed. When the… See more

from Phyllis in MD October 8, 2014 for Lila T. McConnell, MD

I've been a patient of Dr. McConnell's for more than 20 years. She's been the best doctor of the year for me for every single one of them! Glad to hear her peers are recognizing what I've known for decades. Congratulations Dr. Mac!
