Hospital Affiliations


Dr. Kajal Zalavadia is a double board-certified internist and obesity medicine specialist. She joined Inova Medical Group after completing her fellowship in 2012. She has a special interest in the management of medical weight loss patients, bariatric surgery patients and treating patients with malnutrition.

Currently, Dr. Zalavadia oversees the Inova Medical Weight Loss Program. She became interested in obesity medicine during her internal medicine residency where she wanted to focus more on helping her patients prevent and reverse weight-related medical conditions and ultimately improve her patients' quality of life. Dr. Zalavadia then went on to complete a fellowship in Obesity Medicine and Nutrition Support. She was one of the first in the nation to receive a board certification in obesity medicine.
