Care Philosophy

As a primary care physician who specializes in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, my passion is taking care of the whole family and the community. Through preventative medicine, I believe the key to treating disease is to preventing it from developing in the first place whenever possible. Whether it's vaccinating ourselves and our children or regular check-ups to catch a borderline high blood pressure and instituting changes to prevent the development of hypertension, prevention is key.Read more

Poor customer service. Left numerous messages for the Dr. concerning medication subscribed, never heard from Dr. or staff for days. We finally have to call the office to check whether or not the Dr has received the messages left, the front desk confirmed that the Dr. received the messages but do not have time to deal with my problem.
Response of behalf of Inova Medical Group: We have shared this message with the manager. Please contact us at 571-248-4620 and ask to speak with Jo Ann. She can address your concerns with the staff and physician.

My daughter & I usually see Dr. Serrano, who we love & researched. We are nervous to see other/new doctors; however, Dr. Lender, who's in the same practice, was very compassionate & thorough w/my daughter (13 YO) & also with me. She took her time & showed true concern & care, listened to ALL we had to say & ordered testing right away. Her nurse, Sharon was identical, compassionate, spoke in "teenage language" which is important. Another great "tag team!" Pray we get some answers & relief.

This office provides poor customer service. More than once we waited for an extended period without explanation or offer of apology. Earlier today, we took our daughter out of school for an appointment and due to traffic were about 10 minutes later than planned. We were not seen, told to reschedule, and take our child out of school again. Clearly, this Dr. believes it is OK to make patients/children wait, but will not accomodate a slight deviation in her schedule. We won't be back.
Response of behalf of Inova Medical Group: We have shared this message with the manager. Please contact us at 571-248-4620 and ask to speak with Jo Ann. She can address these concerns with our team that schedules appointments.
