Meet Dr. Denia Tapscott, MD

Dr. Denia Tapscott is a board-certified Internal Medicine Physician trained at Georgetown University’s School of Medicine. Over the last 19 years she has been practicing medicine with a focus on bariatric and preventive medicine and more recently, functional medicine.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, Dr. Tapscott was confronted with her own health challenges. She began to explore alternative approaches that could (1) answer the question, why and (2) help her begin the healing process.  Although she did not abandon conventional medicine entirely, she gained a greater appreciation for her condition by using functional medicine, and she continues to implement healthy living with her family.

She now fully integrates this methodology into her current medical practice providing personalized, predictive, participatory, and preventive care to her patients.

Dr. Tapscott is a diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM) and has developed and directed several hospital affiliated medical and surgical weight loss programs. She is a published author and has been recognized for her leadership role in the health care community.

Dr. Tapscott attended the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, and has served as an Associate Professor of Medicine at Howard University.

Meet Gina Hahn, DPT

Gina Hahn (née DeCaro) is a doctor of physical therapy with a passion for weight training and performance. She studied exercise science at Elon University, and earned her doctorate from The George Washington University. Gina’s treatment approach combines her expertise in biomechanics and proper tissue loading or strength training as patients move through the rehab sequence. She believes everyone has the potential to prevent injury, live without pain, and be active at any age.

As a former athlete, she has recovered from injuries of her own (including back pain, ankle sprains, and shoulder instability) and understands the frustration of having to work on weaknesses in order to get better. She is driven by teamwork, including utilizing her colleagues’ expertise and referrals to other providers when necessary. Gina’s goal for patients is to help them understand why they developed an injury, teach them to listen to their body throughout the rehab process, and eventually to become independent with consistent and proper self care.

Outside of work, Gina stays busy traveling, listening to live music, and checking out new restaurants with her husband, family, and friends.
