  • About

    Dr. John is a member of The American Academy of Pediatrics, Fairfax County Medical Society and The Medical Society of Virginia. A Northern Virginia native, Dr. John attended Hunters Woods Elementary and South Lakes High School in Reston. Changing from Botany in his third year of college, he moved toward the dynamic and rewarding field of Pediatrics, graduating from the College of William and Mary and A.O.A. (top 10% of class) from the University of Virginia Medical School. Completing his residency at The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Dr. John was chosen to be Chief Resident for an additional year before returning to his hometown with his beautiful wife and three children. With a son who suffers from asthma and allergies, Dr. John has a special interest in treating these issues. Dr. John’s free time is consumed by his children and the community. His 3 boys participation in sports has led him to a second passion: sports medicine.  He has served as the sideline physician for the Freedom Eagles football team since 2007.  He is also one of the founding board members of the Dulles South Lacrosse League.  He has coached at the youth and high school level since 2003.  He unabashedly uses his office to recruit new players to the greatest and oldest American sport: Lacrosse.  He will grudgingly care for children whose parents are fans of the Hokies, the Philadelphia Eagles, or the Dallas Cowboys!  We ask that you keep the wearing of those colors to a minimum during your visits!
