GANV History

Since opening our first office in 1998, GANV has committed to partnering with patients and providing quality medical care. Founded by Kenneth R. Mirkin, MD, who later merged with Michael A. Garone, MD and Peter L. Scudera, MD, the Fairfax office has been serving the Northern Virginia community for over 19 years. 

Staffed by Board Certified Physicians and Certified Physicians Assistants, GANV providers are excellent clinicians dedicated to enhancing gastrointestinal care. Our PAs are key members of our unique medical team. They have been educated, trained, certified and licensed to practice medicine. They collaborate with our physicians in delivering skilled, personalized care.

Our physicians serve in leadership roles at Inova Fairfax and Fair Oaks Hospitals, on medical advisory boards, and on medical society committees. They also hold clinical faculty positions with Virginia Commonwealth University Hospital and actively participate in training gastroenterology fellows and medical residents. Many of our physicians have won Washingtonian and Northern Virginia Magazine’s Top Doctors list year after year.

As the population of Northern Virginia has grown, so too has GANV.  To meet the needs of families and employers in the surrounding communities GANV expanded by opening offices in Fair Oaks, Chantilly, and Herndon area; including 2 endoscopy centers and a dedicated Infusion suite.
