Eating Disorders

Are you concerned about unhealthy eating habits for yourself, a friend, or family member? If you have concerns, schedule an appointment (703-993-2831) with one of our healthcare providers for information and assistance.

An eating disorder may be a way of trying to cope with underlying problems. Food concerns, body dissatisfaction, and low self-esteem can prevent an individual from achieving their full potential. Unfortunately, some people with eating disorders may not recognize or admit that they have a problem.

Expanded awareness, as well as early detection and intervention, are important to prevent problematic behaviors from evolving into more serious conditions that affect one’s psychological and physical well-being.
