When we decided to open our practice in 2010, we wanted to create an environment that would allow us to provide individualized care focusing on the well-being of our patients. We start with the firm foundation of conventional Western medicine and add components of integrative medicine which may include: functional medicine, medical acupuncture, osteopathy, homeopathy and herbal supplements.

"I have been seeing Dr. Kate for almost 20 years. She has treated my arthritic pain issues, dealt with my three knee replacements (the third was a revision of the first), and with my hormones (HRT). She is my go to person for medical issues, and I regard her as a friend."
"I was very impressed with the depth of knowledge Dr.Shiffman had in the area of alternative as well as traditional medicine.She was extremely easy to talk to and answered my many questions. She has a nice bedside manor and a good sense of humor. I feel very comfortable recommending her to my family and friends."
"I love how friendly everyone is and also the time that Dr. Kate spends with me. She always answers my questions and I never feel rushed."
"I am so grateful that Dr. Conrad and her team alerted me to the seriousness of the injury to my left little toe and spent the extra time to ice it and tape it. The extra time and attention the nurses and doctor spend to review and explain the complex details to keeping you feel the best you can be cannot be found elsewhere. I feel extremely grateful to be counted among their patients."
"Great doctors and support staff. They take their time, they get it right, and it's easy to see that they care."
"Five stars. I have been seeing Dr. Kate for 17 years now when she saved my life (literally) by treating my hypothyroidism appropriately for the first time in 13 years. Since then I have come to know her as a completely unique doctor. Possibly most important is taking the time to listen to me before jumping to conclusions. She is knowledgeable about diet, supplements, homeopathic, muscular-skeleton, and hormones in ways I have not encountered in most other medical doctors. She treats the whole person. I travel 2 hours each way for appointments with Dr. Kate and it is totally worth it."
"Dr Shiffman is friendly and funny. Easy to talk to and knowledgeable. I’ve only seen her a few times and it’s early yet in my treatment plan but I enjoy working with her and feel optimistic because she listens and is thoughtful. "
"Love it, very helpful and supportive. Lots of good suggestions as to how to work on your health goals."
"Dr. Lemmerman is SO caring and works as a partner with me to pursue my best health. LOVE that"
"There's a reason that I have followed Dr. Kate Lemmerman and her crew for over 15 years. The medical care is unparalleledand they treat you with dignity, care, and kindnessand a terrific sense of humor "
"Dr. Kate Lemmerman has been my personal physician for nearly 30 years. She is compassionate, competent, intuitive, open minded, dedicated, up to date on cutting edge ideas for well being. In short, she is everything you could ever want in your partner to maintain your health. "
"They care about my well being and want the best for me "
"Dr. Shiffman has improved my health tremendously I recommend her highly to anyone looking for personalized medical care. "
"We love Dr.Kate and her Staff. She is so very caring and knowledgable about so many situations a patient may have. She takes the time to listen and respond and is so very thorough with making sure we are aware and understand what to do to feel better. I already feel better "
"Have confidence in Dr. Shiffman and pleased with the treatment of my hyperthyroid condition. Monitoring twice a year and prescription meds have been very helpful. "
"I am so happy to be back in an Integrative Medicine Practice I followed Dr Shiffman here from her former practice which is in very sad shape. Professional, caring, thorough - healthcare does not get better than this."
"I love the patient care that I have received from Dr. Kate over the years. She always says that she feels that she doesn't do a lot for me, but she is the only doctor that has been able to work with my hypothyroidism, adrenal issues, hormone imbalances, and Lyme Disease complications. She was, and is, a lifesaver to me. I do tell people about my experiences with her because I am very pleased with the care that I have received. I wouldn't be functioning if it were not for her."
"Dr. Conrad is an amazing doctor. She is highly intelligent and compassionate, exactly the combination one wants in a doctor. She remains on top of every detail and lets nothing fall through the cracks. I have wonderful energy and live my life as though I do not have autoimmune diseases. As I age, I am only feeling better. Whenever I leave this office, I think about how fortunate I am to have a doctor like her. And the staff is always friendly and helpful."
"I’ve been going to this practice for many years. There is no better practice in the Greater Metropoliran Area than Well Being-Being Well. They are superb doctors, kind and extremely thorough and everyone there could not be more professional. "
"For two years prior to finding Well Being-Being Well, I went to several doctors, all of whom minimized my experience, belittled me, and blamed me for the symptoms I described. Finding Dr Clamp, and now Dr. Shiffman since Dr. Clamp’s retirement changed everything. I was properly diagnosed and treated, always respected and heard. I have recommended WB-BW to others and will continue to do so enthusiastically. I moved away from the DC area seven years ago but continue to go to WB-BW. I will continue doing so as long as I am able. This is the best physician experience I have ever had. I am so grateful. "
"Excellent caring physicians and a pleasant staff. There is never a wait, and the staff returns phone calls before the end of the day. "
"Jessica has been great. She has really been a blessing in our lives and to our marriage. At one point things admittedly looked pretty hopeless for our marriage, but I really feel like God guided us to Jessica, and she really made a difference in our lives and in our marriage. Still together and better than ever"

"I'm so thrilled to have found this practice Dr. Shiffman practices functional medicine and I was looking for a doctor who helps me find root causes for my symptoms and not "band-aids". It's well worth the drive from DC to VA"
