I am a proud Washingtonian, born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. I spent my undergraduate years in New Orleans, earning my Bachelor’s Degree from Tulane University. I attended Medical School at the University of Maryland, and completed my OBGYN Residency at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond. I returned home to Maryland to begin my career in Obstetrics and Gynecology, following in the footsteps of my father, Dr. Bernie Band.
I’ve spent the last 24 years as part of Division 22 of Capital Women’s Care (formerly known as Band, Badwey, Goodridge and Perez), the practice of which my father was a founding member. This prestigious practice was built through a culture of compassion and caring, where the doctor-patient relationships are legendary.
As a child and young adult, I witnessed these doctors spending time getting to know their patients and this is part of why I wanted to practice medicine. Over the last 50+ years, our private practice has provided excellent medical care while maintaining personal relationships with our patients.
I Love OB/Gyn
In the 20 years since I joined Division 22, the healthcare environment has changed but our doctors remain committed to maintain the legacy that my father and his partners started in 1966. We believe that the doctor-patient relationship is critical to high quality care.
My goal is to bring happiness to my patients, from delivering your children to providing personal care throughout your lives.
As most of my patients know, I rarely conclude an office visit until I know how your kids are doing in school, or where you are going on vacation. I now have the pleasure and responsibility of being the longest member of the second generation in this practice.
Outside of the office …
It has been a very busy and exciting year for our family. In June, my wife Wendy and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
Our youngest, Elizabeth is graduating from high school, and is continuing her education at Lehigh University in the fall. Austin is finishing his junior year at the University of Maryland and has declared his interest in pursuing a medical career.
Our oldest son, Jake, will graduate from Dickinson College in May, with a degree in Psychology, and a minor in Social Entrepreneurship. As his college baseball career comes to an end, his professional career will begin with the Cal Ripken Sr. Baseball Foundation.
So what am I going to do? Besides answering your portal messages I can be found working out at Title Boxing, golfing and traveling with Wendy.
