About me

Dr. Real attended medical school at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. prior to completing a residency in internal medicine and fellowships in gastroenterology and advanced endoscopy at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. He is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology.

As a gastroenterologist, Dr. Real cares for patients with a variety of digestive conditions, including bile duct stones, pancreatic cysts, pancreatitis, and cancers of the bile duct, colon, pancreas, stomach and rectum. He specializes in advanced endoscopic procedures, such as endoscopic ultrasound and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).

Philosophy of care

“I believe in a patient-centered approach where the patient plays a vital role in the medical decision-making process and the creation of a care plan. I also believe in treating and caring for the whole person, not just a specific illness. By focusing on patients’ physical, emotional and social health and well-being, I aim to improve their overall quality of life.”
