About me

Nicholas J. Kohlerman, III, MD, Ph.D., practices internal medicine with a special focus on geriatrics for the patient population at MedStar Health at Leisure World in Silver Spring, MD.  He has been at this location full  time since 2/10/2020 having first started with Medstar Medical Group on 9/1/2016 at the New Mexico Avenue office at Foxhall Square in Washington, DC. Prior to working at Medstar, Dr. Kohlerman spent 6 years at BW Primary Care in Eldersburg, MD (Lifebridge Health), and prior to that had his own private medical practice in North Potomac, MD for 17 years. 

Dr. Kohlerman received his medical degree from University of Maryland School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency training at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital.  He completed a Ph.D. program in the Department of Physiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD in 1983 prior to attending medical school.  His thesis was in the field of neurophysiology of movement control in an animal model.  

Philosophy of Care
I strive every day to deliver high quality healthcare targeted to the individual needs of the patient. The best way to achieve this goal is to develop mutually agreed upon strategies between provider and patient that promote resilience, vitality and strength as we grow older.
