Learn About Dr. Marathe

Dr. Marathe joined Lifetime Internal Medicine in April 2020, bringing over 2 decades of clinical experience with her. She grew up in the Midwest, a product of 2 hard working primary care physician parents. She attended an accelerated combined undergraduate/medical school program in Kansas City, MO, and then did her Internal Medicine residency at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She remains board certified in Internal Medicine and also attained board certification in Obesity Medicine in 2020.

She and her husband settled in Northern Virginia in 2002, as they felt it was an ideal place to raise a family. She has worked at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Washington, DC and at Inova Primary Care for many years, but she found that her visits with her patients were too short to have adequate time to listen to them deeply. She longed to be able to spend more time with her patients and discovered that the concierge model would allow her to do so. She is dedicated to providing compassionate, thoughtful care across the spectrum of age and health for all adults.

Kind words about Dr. Marathe

Dr Marathe is fantastic. Signing on with her practice has been one of the best medical decisions my wife and I have made to date. She is comprehensive, compassionate, and professional. The practice is very up to date, frequently addressing current health issues. Her staff is on the ball, friendly, efficient and responds to requests in a very timely matter. Thank you.

Dr. Marathe is a rare find. The first word that comes to mind with this Dr is Kindness. And, the second is Trust. She takes her time in my Mother's appointments and listens to all the details. She is well informed to refer me to the best local resources when a test is needed. Dr. Marathe is an excellent physician and I have complete confidence that she proactively protects her patients health. I know that my Mom is in the best care available.
