"Dr. Wanid"

Dr. Chingchai Wanidworanun
Chingchai Wanidworanun, MD, PLLC

We provide primary medical care to the full range of internal medicine with a special interest in HIV and travel medicine with offices in Arlington VA and Silver Spring MD.

Practice Scope

Internal medicine covers most medical problems in adults except those requiring surgery.

Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Chingchai Wanidworanun, MD, PhD (known as Dr. Wanid) will listen to your description of your medical problems, examine you, do and order tests, and then diagnose, treat, or refer you to a medical specialist as needed.

Thorough care is made possible by Dr. Wanidworanun's training which includes doctoral degrees in both clinical care (MD) and biomedical research (PhD). Certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine was granted following residency training and a rigorous exam and is maintained each year by Continuing Medical Education (CME). Follow this link for more about Dr. Wanid's medical credentials.

Travel medicine is NOT within the scope of our internal medicine practice. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we are NOT able to provide travel-related medical services through our affiliated business, Courthouse Travel Clinic PLLC.

Practice Philosophy

Patients are provided with a clean, calm and efficient clinical environment. The doctor and his staff work hard to deliver respect, privacy and high quality care to each patient in a dignified environment.

Care is provided to all adults without regard to race, ethnic origin, age, gender or sexual orientation. Patients with disabilities should alert the staff when making an appointment of any accommodations that might be required.

Our medical record system is computerized. Records are stored in our office. They are not stored or transmitted using the internet. Paper copies of medical records are shared only with your insurance company and other medical professionals you designate, as explained in our privacy policy.
