Kenneth Zweig, M.D.
Dr. Zweig believes the majority of medical problems are caused by poor behavioral habits that have accumulated over time. He takes a preventative approach to treatment and helps patients adopt a preventative behavioral mindset before replying on medication that could inadvertently cause other medical problems.
His focus on sleep disorders and hypertension go hand in hand with his mission to improve patient health through behavioral change. Though sleep is the foundation for good health, most adults don't get the recommended seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Many may suffer from serious disorders such as sleep apnea — which, in turn, can lead to chronic health issues such as hypertension, heart disease, Alzheimer's, and obesity. Dr. Zweig also helps patients improve their overall mental and physical health through a holistic approach to treatment that focuses on nutrition, exercise and managing stress.
Dr. Zweig is a clinical instructor at The George Washington University Hospital and an assistant professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, where he completed his residency and was chief resident. Prior to joining NVFP, Dr. Zweig served 15 years at General Medicine Internal Group, P.C. in Arlington, and was on the board for the HealthConnect Accountable Care Organization. He volunteered with the Virginia Hospital Center Honduras Medical Brigade to provide healthcare to remote villages in Honduras. He has been named Washingtonian's Top Doctor, Northern Virginia Magazine Top Doctor, and received the Patients' Choice Award.
He received his doctorate from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He currently resides in Arlington with his wife and daughter. In his free time, Dr. Zweig enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and skiing with his family.
