Montgomery County is a fantastic place to practice and to grow. Our county boasts arguably the best public school system in the country. Montgomery is a part of the Washington Metropolitan area, which consists of Washington, DC, 7 counties in Maryland, and 5 counties in Virginia; this area has a total of 5.8 million residents. This Washington, D.C., metro area has the perks of a large urban area. It's serviced by an extensive public transit system, is home to plenty of restaurants and entertainment venues and a variety of museums and other cultural sites. Meanwhile, each neighborhood in the District and its surrounding towns has its own atmosphere. Residents gather for block parties, mingle at dog parks and converse at coffee shops, creating an ambiance similar to that of a much smaller community.
There is an opportunity for contributions as we have our own Charitable Foundation (Visionary Foundation) that conducts surgical mission trips yearly to impoverished countries.
