The LMG annual report is for shareholder use only and is not to be distributed without
permission from the LMG Board of Directors.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and senior administrative management team, welcome to Loudoun Medical Group’s 2012
Annual Report. As the largest multi-specialty physician owned medical group in Northern Virginia, we are again proud to
present the results of a successful year to both our patients and physician owners.
In the opening messages of both the 2010 and 2011 annual reports, we reported that Loudoun Medical Group (LMG) was in a
unique position to embrace the changes and challenges associated with a dynamic period in the healthcare industry. Today, we
are happy to report that 2012 marked a year of significant accomplishment toward steering LMG into the modern era of
American healthcare as a regional industry leader.
In an uncertain economy, continued long-term growth requires organizations to remain innovative. LMG has a proven record
of consistent group expansion while managing practices already in the group. Throughout 2012, LMG continued strategic
growth by expanding our presence in Loudoun, Fairfax and surrounding counties. An unprecedented nine practices were added
to LMG’s roster in 2012 with both increased services and specialties. This wave of growth has continued into 2013, with an
additional four practices joining LMG by May 1, 2013. Since the existing management team was formed in 2011, LMG has
realized a 35% increase in the number of practice sites – from 60 sites at the end of 2010 to 81 sites in May 2013.
And although growth is important, LMG remains committed to its original mission of providing high quality medical services.
LMG currently employs over 800 individuals dedicated to fulfilling LMG’s pledge of providing excellence in patient care.
Furthermore, a significant quality initiative instituted in 2012 included providing a budget for an organized quality program
designed to perpetually improve each and every patient encounter. In total, over 200 LMG healthcare providers rendered
services for more than 180,000 distinct patients during 2012 within 24 medical and surgical specialties – throughout a
geographic footprint spanning 65 miles from Berryville to Alexandria, Virginia.
Additionally, as part of our quality initiative, LMG successfully implemented the Pulse EHR system in July 2012. The EHR
team worked diligently in 2012 from the “War Room” tracking the project’s progress, identifying 1,330 unique items to
complete before go-live and ultimately converting 10 million scanned documents throughout 500,000 patient charts and 350
system users on a single day. The new EHR system allows for a more efficient delivery of care while providing the capability
of reporting quality outcomes.
Other accomplishments in 2012 include: the negotiation of a number of managed care contracts, thereby ensuring continued
optimum reimbursement for LMG practices; and the reported cost savings of over $550,000 in malpractice premiums for the
group.
Corporate branding and marketing as well as team work were important during 2012 as LMG implemented a Corporate
Wellness Program and numerous team building events. Branding and marketing continue to be important initiatives in 2013
with anticipated fully developed marketing and strategic business plans to be soon announced.
In closing, as we look back on 2012, we are filled with a sense of accomplishment – yet our work as a regional healthcare
leader will never be complete. Loudoun Medical Group is on a perpetual journey – committed to an “evolution to excellence”.
We are fortunate to have an impressive team of clinical providers and administrative staff members dedicated to making
quality and service their priority and assisting in the further development and success of LMG.

Dr. Michele Reilly founded Ashburn Pediatrics in 1994, along with Drs.
Theresa Crowley and Lewis Gold, who soon joined her in practice. The
practice has grown steadily over the years and had the pleasure of treating over
9,000 patients in 2012 in a warm and loving environment. The founders were
pleased to welcome Drs. Amie Beloy, Maura Carroll, and Victoria Pierce as pod
owners in 2009, and Dr. Jyotsna Shah in 2012. Dr. Gold retired from practice
in 2010.
Ashburn Pediatrics provides primary pediatric care to infants, children and
adolescents from newborns to college age students. Their message is to provide
quality pediatric care to meet the variable needs of the community. Ashburn
Pediatrics providers pride themselves on being partners with parents to provide
the knowledge needed to make sound medical, physical, and emotional
decisions for their children. Their primary interest is to ensure healthy children
with a healthy future.
Ashburn Pediatrics continues to flourish, embracing Dr. Jane Curry and Nurse
Practitioners, Susan Weiner, Kelly Welstead, and Katie Geaneas as members of
their Pod family.
Ashburn Pediatrics is an active practice within LMG and the community. Dr.
Reilly continues to serve as chairperson of the HR Committee. Dr. Crowley is
active on the Managed Care Committee and Drs. Pierce, Carroll and Beloy are
members of the Credentialing, Human Resources and Quality Assurance
Committees, respectively. In the community, Ashburn Pediatrics has acted as
preceptor for numerous student nurses for the last decade.

Davidson, FNP-BC. Interestingly, Dr. Coleman’s father,
Dr. John Coleman, practices part-time in the practice at the
age of 85. His goal is to be the oldest practicing BoardCertified Family Physician in the United States.
A few years ago, Dr. Linda Coleman expanded her practice
to include aesthetic and hormone services in addition to the
stellar episodic and preventive care already offered by her
practice. Dr. Coleman and her team of both Internal
Medicine & Family Medicine specialists are especially
skilled in the management of patients who have multisystem disease processes.
Dr. Coleman’s office is located in the Countryside area of
Sterling, where both her traditional practice and wellness
services continue to thrive. In fact, Dr. Coleman has plans
to lease an adjoining suite in her building in order to
maintain a dedicated space for her wellness services. The

Dr. Coleman and her dedicated team cared for over 4,000
distinct patients during 2012.

patients during 2012.
Empowerment is a theme throughout the practice. Dr. Foster
and his staff believe that women should be empowered by
participating fully in their health care decisions. He and his
staff are well-trained, kind and caring. They care equally
about each other as well as all of the patients they serve. The
unhurried atmosphere lends itself to making patients feel
comfortable and confident, whether they are considering
delivery of their babies or one of many other services
available.

Infectious Disease: Tropical
Medicine and Traveler’s Health
The Skin Cancer Center of Northern Virginia (SCCNV) specializes in the prevention,
diagnosis, and treatment of skin cancer. Dr. Michael Todd, Physician Assistant
Michael Fraykor, and the skilled staff at SCCNV offer a wide range of surgical and
non-surgical treatments for skin cancer, including: Mohs micrographic surgery,

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin cancer
is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Melanoma, a form of skin
cancer, is especially deadly. Mohs surgery is microscopically controlled surgery used
to treat common types of skin cancer. It is one of the many methods of obtaining
complete margin control during removal of a malignancy, allowing for the removal of a
skin cancer with a very narrow surgical margin and a high cure rate.
Dr. Todd, who was trained in Internal Medicine and Dermatology at the Penn State
Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania, also completed sub-specialty
training in skin cancer and Mohs micrographic surgery at the Geisinger Medical Center
in Danville, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Todd’s practice has distinguished itself by going above and beyond in their efforts
of meeting not only their patients’ medical needs, but their emotional needs as well.
One example of this is the welcoming and stress free atmosphere of the office suite.
Everything from the decor to the ambient sounds exudes serenity and professional
confidence, placing patients at ease from the moment they walk in to well after they
leave.
Dr. Todd is an active member of LMG and the community. Dr. Todd helps encourage
early education by sponsoring a yearly poster contest in the Loudoun community
schools for third through fifth graders to promote “Safe & Fun in the Sun.” He
currently serves on the Loudoun Medical Group Philanthropic Committee.

Optimum Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine (OPT) is a natural
extension of the practices of Drs. Michael Kavanagh, Matthew Gavin,
and Ian Wattenmaker. This Pod has been a part of the LMG family
since 2008.
The aim of OPT is to enhance and restore functional ability and quality
of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. The healthcare
professionals at OPT diagnose and treat individuals from adolescence to
the elderly.
Two lines of service separate OPT from most therapy centers;
Occupational Therapy and Aquatic Therapy. Occupational therapy is a
service provided by Andrea Pyle, OTR. She specializes in hand, wrist,
and arm therapy. This is a line of care that is concerned with promoting
health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of the
occupational therapy program at OPT is to enable people to participate
in the activities of everyday life. Aquatic therapy is offered off-site with
Janie Ellison, PTA two days per week at Ida Lee Recreation Center in
Leesburg, VA. This type of therapy is often ideal for those that need
non-weight bearing activity to recover from injury or to cope with a
disability.

began as a solo physical therapy group. Today, the therapy team
includes five physical therapists (PT), Joan Kennedy, Shahla Williams,
Michelle McGregor, Bryan Spillare, and Brett Huffman; one
occupational therapist, Andrea Pyle; and four physical therapy assistants
(PTA), Nona Phelps, Anne Lowery, Janie Ellison, Husam Bani. OPT

Andrew partnered with M.D. VIP, a concierge medicine service. By limiting their
number of patients, they have been able to provide unique and personalized care to
their patients.

provide revolutionary techniques. Dr. Abidin has pioneered Hyoid
Suspension, a surgical procedure performed to treat obstructive
sleep apnea by securing the hyoid bone, the U-shaped bone in the
neck, in place instead of allowing it to move
move around freely. Movement of the hyoid bone increases the
risk of airway blockage during sleep and causes symptoms of sleep
apnea.
