Help us congratulate Dr. Darryn Band, Dr. Randy Lizardo, Dr. Heather Sine, and Dr. Ann Shrout for being named Top Doc 2023 by the Washingtonian.
These four physicians possess the characteristics and skills that help drive Capital Women’s Care and distinguish us as one of the leading practices in the Washington, DC area.
The 2023 Top Doctors list was published in Washingtonian’s November issue. The doctors were identified by a survey of more than 13,500 locally practicing physicians asking which of their peers they trusted most with their patients.
Dr. Band received his undergraduate degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, then attended medical school at the University of Maryland. His residency was at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and returned home to begin working in obstetrics and gynecology, following in his father’s footsteps. Dr. Band is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Dr. Lizardo has been accredited as a Master Surgeon in Minimally Invasive Gynecology by the internationally recognized Surgical Review Corporation and a Certified Surgeon of The Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology. He is currently licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia and provides surgical services in multiple facilities. He is referred patients from across the DMV and has been consistently recognized by his peers as a Washingtonian Magazine Top Doc.
Dr. Sine completed her undergraduate degree at the College of Notre Dame in Maryland, and medical school at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., then traveled to the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston for her residency. During her years in medical school, she worked as a medical assistant for an established OB/GYN, and watched how his compassionate patient encounters led to his personal happiness. From this she took her own ability to talk with patients and help alleviate anxieties as well as being there while they make difficult decisions.
Dr. Anne Shrout has been practicing OB/GYN for more than 30 years. She is a native Marylander but spent the early part of her professional career as an active duty US Army physician. After completing her military service, she returned to Montgomery County in 2004 to start her civilian practice. She draws on her education as well as her personal experience to guide her in patient interactions and decision making.
