  • Anyone in the DC area?

    I'll be moving again this year, now from boston to the DC area. Not sure yet if I'll live in DC or Rosslyn, VA but around that area.

    Let me know if you live around there! also I'm looking for a good gynecologist (vulvar especialist), an urologist (IC), and good GP!

    I hope someone responds....!

      Thank you! I'll be moving to North Arlington as well, in 2 months.

      I contacted the IC support group leader of the area to get urlogists and Gyne names. I got some urologists names who are supposed to be really good but do not take insurance

      I would like to see a Gyne who specialized in VV and a uro who specializes in IC. It'll be interesting to see an urogynecologist as well...

      I'll PM you to see if we can be in touch.
      Thanks again
