About Z Chris, MD

Dr. Chris is a primary care physician board certified in internal medicine. He has more than 25 years of clinical experience and was in private practice in Washington, DC, prior to joining Inova Medical Group. He has also served as clinical faculty at Georgetown University, Duke University, and Emory University.

Born in New York, Dr. Chris was raised in Danville, Virginia. In third grade he decided that he wanted to practice medicine after seeing how his pediatrician – who made house calls – was able to restore calm when he and his siblings were sick. The favorite part of his job involves meeting new and interesting people and helping them to improve their quality of life. His hobbies include playing the piano.
