Capital Digestive Care Taps Two GI Doctors for Rockville Office

Capital Digestive Care has tapped two new physicians for its growing Rockville office on 14955 Shady Grove Road. Both doctors are highly-trained medical professionals who are skilled in gastroenterology and internal medicine.​

Brian Ciampa, MD, is a talented gastroenterologist with a strong commitment to patient care. He originally received a Bachelor of Science in Communications. But after three years in film and television production, he changed course and decided to pursue a career in medicine. He began his medical education in the Post Baccalaureate Premedical Program at the University of Pennsylvania and earned a Doctor of Medicine from the Indiana University School of Medicine. He then completed a residency in internal medicine through the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as a fellowship in gastroenterology at George Washington University.​

Leigh Lurie, MD is a dynamic physician with several years of experience. She earned her medical degree from Medical College of Wisconsin and completed her internal medicine residency at George Washington University Hospital. She worked as an internist for several years before finishing her gastroenterology fellowship within the New York Presbyterian system and pursuing her longtime goal of becoming a gastroenterologist. Most recently, Dr. Lurie served as a hospitalist for Johns Hopkins Community Physicians at Suburban Hospital and as a primary care physician at the General Internal Medicine Group.​ The addition of Dr. Lurie, brings the number of female practitioners at Capital Digestive Care to 26. ​

Meeting the needs of a diverse and growing ​population across the Washington Metro area is a priority for Capital Digestive Care. Established in 2009, Capital Digestive Care has 55 physicians and 16 office locations across the Washington Metropolitan Area to care for patients suffering from all types of digestive health conditions.
