FCRS’ dedication to the treatment of colon, anal and rectal problems was further exemplified when on November 30, 2015, FCRS opened Loudoun County’s first colon & rectal office. Located at the Inova Loudoun Hospital medical office complex, residents of Loudoun County no longer have to drive far for specialized colorectal care. Patients hospitalized for any colon, anal or rectal problem can now request a FCRS surgeon.
Since 1984, FCRS’ Fellowship-Trained, Board Certified Colorectal Surgeons have been providing the highest level of quality care for diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. Their patient-centered philosophy, meticulous surgical technique and postoperative patient management have allowed FCRS to grow into the largest single-specialty group of colorectal surgeons in the NOVA/DC Metro region.
FCRS’ Loudoun Colorectal Team will consist of Drs. Lynda Dougherty, Kate Khalifeh, and Timothy Plerhoples. The Loudoun office is opened five days a week, offering flexible appointment hours including same-day emergency appointments: FCRS proudly participates in most managed care, traditional insurance, embassy, and governmental health plans (Medicare/Medicaid), as well as the new ACA Health Exchange Plans.
