I was in the same position as you a few months ago–I was new in town and needed a new doctor, preferably a woman. I have the federal Blue Cross/blue Shield basic plan and some doctors I called weren’t taking new BCBS patients because I guess they recently changed their compensation sturcture for doctors and made it worse for them. Anyway I ended up with Elizabeth Wheaton. She might come as as brusque but she’s just sort of matter-of-fact about things. The other doctor in her practice that I originally tried to go to but won’t take new BC/BS patients is Lisa Kaufman. I ended up liking Dr. Wheaton and I think she did a good job and I’ll probably stick with her, even though now that I’m in the practice, I could switch to Kaufman. But Kaufman comes highly recommended from other people, so I think you’d be good with either one. The office # is 202-833-7051, and it’s located at 1145 19th St NW.
