Shady Grove Adventist Hospital
About Dr. Piness
I was born in Los Angeles, CA. Prior to becoming an OB-GYN, I received my undergraduate degree from Williams College and my M.D. degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. I remained at Georgetown for my OB-GYN residency training. Before becoming an OB Hospitalist at Shady Grove Medical Center (SGMC) in 2015, I was in private practice in Northern Virginia for 25 years. I was a Governor-appointed Member of the Virginia Board of Medicine from 2004-2013 and served as its President from 2009-2010. I am currently proud to serve as a Member of the SGMC Medical Executive Committee. I was honored to be awarded the SGMC Physician RISES Award in 2018. This award is given biannually to the physician who exemplifies the hospital’s values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence, and Stewardship. When away from work, I enjoy traveling, taking long walks with friends and family, and spending time with my husband and two adult daughters.
