Evolving Family Health

transforming patient care...

Dr. Kabir understands that each path to optimal health and wellness is unique. That’s why she provides care that is not only compassionate and evidence-based, but also highly-individualized. Getting to the heart of the matter can take time so families are provided longer visits, typically 60 – 90 minutes per session, on more than one occasion as needed, and within their own home if preferred.  In addition to empowering patients and their families with knowledge that motivates them to better manage and prevent symptoms, she is an experienced advocate for families, helping to coordinate their care across multiple disciplines and systems.

Meeting her patients and families where they are–literally within their home or hers–and in terms of assessing their readiness for a particular diagnosis or various treatment options – gives her the ability to provide more relevant medical care within a natural environment where patients feel most relaxed.

When parents and children are not rushed, when they are heard and feel valued, they are more willing to trust and collaborate with their physician. At Evolving Family Health, patients receive the guidance and resources necessary to make informed health care decisions, improve their health and self-care, and navigate an increasingly complex healthcare system.

On the other side of a challenging journey with her own son, Dr. Kabir wishes nothing more than to advocate for her patients and their families, helping them feel less alone, more supported, and able to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

After all, she’s been there.

About Me

karolyn kabir m.d.

Welcome to my Practice!

Hello, my name is Dr. Karolyn Kabir. I am a family-centered physician, dual-board certified in both Pediatrics and the Subspecialty of Adolescent Medicine. Additionally, prior to focusing on a career in Pediatrics, I completed two years of an Ob-Gyn residency, delivering over 500 babies! 

I’m passionate about providing family-centered medical care that also includes behavioral, mental health, reproductive and integrative services from infancy through young adulthood and parenthood.  My evidence-based practice offers services that reflect the latest neuroscience, epigenetics, and nutrition research. I collaborate with providers from multiple disciplines, help families with the coordination of their child’s medical care, and work closely with local schools. I advocate for my families!

Evolving Family Health is a direct pay practice offering virtual or in-person visits within the privacy of my home or the comfort of yours.  Home visits are often requested by families with newborns, mothers with breastfeeding concerns, families seeking care for illness, families that need more than one person evaluated, and patients with behavioral health concerns. 


I am a native Washingtonian practicing in my hometown of of Vienna, Virginia. Raised by my Persian father, a physician, and Midwestern mother, a nurse, I inherited their global mindset and love for medicine.

When not caring for patients, I enjoy spending time with my teenage daughter, keeping up with my sons in college, practicing yoga, gardening and cooking. As a long-time mental health advocate, I support efforts to reduce stigma around “brain health,” decriminalize mental health, and improve access to mental health care.

Why “Evolving Family Health”?

I chose the words “family health” as part of my practice name because patients are not isolated in their health care concerns. If a patient is struggling, often so, too, is their family. It takes a village to raise our children and I believe in taking care of that village. My
