Felice L. Banson, MD

Board Certified in Gastroenterology

For Dr. Banson, pursuing a career in medicine was an easy choice. The youngest of four children, she comes from a family of physicians, including both parents, two of her siblings and several aunts and uncles. By age six, she knew she wanted to follow in their footsteps.

She was first drawn to family practice, and then considered pediatrics. However, in the fourth year of medical school, Dr. Banson completed a rotation in gastroenterology and discovered her true passion.

Dr. Banson excelled in her training, earning the Louis Tretin Award during her residency and the Sol Sherry Research Award during her fellowship. She loves the visible aspect of GI disease, the variety of therapeutic options and procedures, the opportunity to interact with and educate patients, and the ability to improve quality of life.

Dr. Banson’s interest in medicine was also fueled by a desire to help the underserved. She spent time in the Philippines writing her thesis on the effects of a drug on pregnancy outcomes and early infant deaths, and has volunteered at clinics.

Originally from Massachusetts, Dr. Banson moved to Northern Virginia to be near family. She joined GANV in February 2015 with eight years of GI experience and a reputation for skilled, personalized care. She has been recognized multiple times in the Top Doctor lists in Washingtonian and Northern Virginia magazines. She is a welcome asset to our team.
