Dr. Joan Loveland, MD
Dr. Joan Loveland is a board-certified OB-gyn who has been in private practice since 2002, providing skilled and comprehensive care to the women in the DC area. With an emphasis on preventive medicine and "whole-person" care, Dr Loveland strives to assist all of her patients in their pursuit of optimal health. After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Medicine, Dr. Loveland completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Maryland. During her residency, she delivered her son at 28 weeks while hiking in the Adirondacks and spent several months in the NICU in Burlington, Vermont, as he grew strong enough to come home. Her daughter joined the team right after she completed her residency and Dr. Loveland has embraced the challenge of juggling her mommy duties with her love of medicine ever since. Motivated by a personal turning point at a young age, Dr. Loveland strives to live her life with joy and purpose, hoping to bring this commitment to all her endeavors at work and at home. She hopes her patients receive from her not only highly skilled medical care, but true empathy and support for their challenges and goals. When not working with her patients in the office or hospital, you might spot Dr. Loveland hiking local trails or running with friends, at the yoga studio or swimming laps. Or on the sidelines of her children's sports fields. Or with her nose buried in a book that she's madly reading before the next meeting of book club.

My mother, my sister, my daughter, and I all see Dr. Loveland. She is smart, asks good questions, does a thorough job, and is grounded. She answers my questions and never makes me feel silly. She's taken me through several tough situations with a calmness that was incredible. She also keeps up with new developments in the field & shares insights. I was thrilled when she broke off to start her own practice. Love their focus on the whole woman and providing education to the community.

Who would ever guess a gyn appointment would be pleasant and painless? The Bloom office was impeccably neat, warm and welcoming. A bowl of packaged mints and water bottles are a welcome plus in the plush waiting room. I arrived early for my appointment, as this was my first time. I was met with smiles and eye to eye contact. I was escorted back to be seen promptly. I would never know that Dr. Loveland had other patients, as she sat down & poured through my history. I felt well cared for.
