Dr. Angela was born and raised in upstate, NY. She attended Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and received a BS in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Neurobiology and Behavior. In August 2008, she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree with Magna Cum Laude honors and set out to move and begin her new career in Maryland. Within the chiropractic field, Dr. Angela has developed a great desire to focus on Women and Children's Health and has pursued extra education and certifications in those areas. She is certified in the Webster Technique, which is a specific adjustment of the pregnant woman's pelvis that ensures the proper alignment and tension of the pelvic structure in order to make the intrauterine environment favorable for the developing baby. This leads to a safer, healthier labor and delivery with fewer interventions. Dr. Angela is also in the final stages of receiving a Pediatric Certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This is a 180-hour certification program that covers the specific diagnosis and adjusting techniques for the pregnant woman, newborn and infant through adolescent. With this training she has access to a wealth of information regarding common childhood illnesses and neuro-developmental conditions and the alternative treatments that are now available to parents. Of special note, Dr. Angela is a Hope for Autism doctor, which means she holds a certification in the bio-nutritional care of individuals on the spectrum. It is a pleasure for her to present options of alternative care to parents and patients who might otherwise have none. Dr. Angela is, above all else, a proud mother and military spouse. Nothing brings her more pride than her husband, Matt (an Army Major, currently stationed at Ft. Meade), and two children, Ashley and Justin. She has been active in the military community for more than a decade now and looks forward to finding new ways to support the military families in the Maryland/DC area. At Fort Bragg she was presented with the prestigious Dr. Mary E. Walker Award for her dedication and support of the soldiers and their families in the 1/505th PIR Aide Station, where her husband was the platoon leader. The Dr. Mary E. Walker Award is presented to Army spouses whose achievements and performance merit special recognition. Dr. Angela looks forward to helping you achieve your health and wellness goals.

Why It Matters: Dr. Tarjick's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

Malpractice Claims not available
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Maryland.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect non-disciplinary board actions?
Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.
