Hospital Affiliations


Dr. Catherine Pipan is a primary care physician board certified in family medicine. She joins Inova Medical Group with over 22 years of clinical experience. She has a special interest in women’s and men’s health, geriatrics and chronic care management.

She believes in shared patient decision making: presenting medical information so patients can make informed decisions in the context of their individual belief system and culture. This care may involve reaching out to team members outside of the office setting (medical consultants, social workers, nutritionists, therapists etc.) to optimize available treatment to achieve a patient’s goals and the way they want to live.

Dr. Pipan chose primary care because it offers continuity of care with the opportunity to develop long term relationships with patients. She enjoys the challenge and medical intrigue of solving an acute problem while addressing chronic medical concerns and preventive measures. Her goal is to provide compassionate comprehensive care to address the needs of her patients.

In her spare time she likes hiking, bicycling, music, and spending time with her husband and two playful cats. She also enjoys watching baseball and college basketball.
