Stephen A. Geller, M.D.

Dr. Geller is a board-certified physician in Internal Medicine. He received his medical degree from John Hopkins University, School of Medicine. As he has always had an interest in looking for new approaches to chronic conditions, he became certified as a physician investigator to manage and design clinical trials to support creation of new treatment options. 


Dr. Geller has always believed in taking a comprehensive approach to treatment by focusing on how patients’ multiple medical issues interact with each other and the resulting complications. By doing so, he is able to concentrate on the whole person and not just a single disease to improve overall patient outcomes. 

 

Joseph F. Gibbons, M.D.

Dr. Gibbons is a board-certified physician in Internal Medicine. He completed his medical degree at West Virginia University and completed his residency at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Due to his dedication to patient care, he has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance in managing patients with diabetes and cardiac health issues.

Dr. Gibbons values spending time with patients as it allows him to listen to their overall health history and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. This enables him to build the rapport with patients to build a partnership in their health and improve overall outcomes.  

 

Rajiv Dua, M.D. 

Dr. Dua is a board-certified physician in Family and Bariatric Medicine.  He completed his residency at Wayne State University/Detroit Medical Center. Upon completion of his medical degree, he return back to his hometown of Ellicott City, MD to join Centennial Medical Group (CMG) as a primary care physician and became the director of the CMG Medical Weight Loss Program.

Dr Dua likes to take an individualized approach to his patient care with a focus on the treatment of obesity. As there are many causes to weight gain such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, endocrine disorders, nutrition and more, he believes there is not a one size fit all treatment approach for patients. He likes to dedicate his time to diagnosing the cause of his patient’s weight gain and giving them the tools to be successful in reaching their treatment goals.
