Margaret Kopelman, M.D.

City Dermatology of Northern Virginia
407 North Washington St.
Falls Church Virginia 22046
Q: What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?

A: I recently opened my own dermatology practice after many years working as an employed physician. It’s very freeing to be in charge of my own workspace. I’m able to make adjustments as needed to keep our office a welcoming environment for my patients.

Q: What advice would you offer for women just starting out?

A: Find a mentor. When I first started, I had so much to learn about running a medical practice. However, other small business owners were incredibly generous with their time and advice, while counseling through the Small Business Association helped me set up a realistic timeline and detailed plan to get my practice off the ground.
