About Dr. Ely

Are you from the DC area?

Yes, I am! I grew up in the Rockville/Potomac area and moved back to the area after finishing school and residency.

What are your best tips for staying healthy?

Get up and move! In today’s day and age, the majority of Americans are sedentary during the day, and that’s not what we were designed for! Try to stay as active as possible whether it’s going to a dance class, walking with friends, and don’t be afraid of weight training! But also remember that health and fitness are first and foremost made in the kitchen. You can’t out-exercise unhealthy eating habits!

If I wasn’t a doctor, I’d be…?

Probably a marine biologist or a writer for National Geographic! I always knew I’d have a career with a science base, but as a kid I wanted to travel, write and photograph amazing things!
