I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group because I wanted to focus on practicing medicine, which was what I was trained to do.

I have a special clinical interest in shoulder and knee ligament reconstruction, as well as general fitness.

I look forward to partnering with you on your musculoskeletal health.

What My Patients Say

Top quality communication. Top quality medical advice. - AS

Dr. Charles has helped me with my knee. - CT

I first met Dr. Charles for a shoulder injury in my early 20s. She was very matter-of-fact in her answers, stating her reasons for treatment and why my PT was too much for such a small muscle group. Fast forward 15 years and I met up with her again for a broken knee. Not only has her bedside manner not changed -- both my husband and I are big fans! -- she instantly remembered me from before. Dr. Charles listened to my needs and abilities as a patient both pre- and post-surgery; I especially appreciated her willingness to work outside the bounds of formulaic post-op treatment. She also responded to my emails and questions very quickly. For all of these reasons, I cannot recommend her enough! - HG

I love the personal and straightforward approach from Dr. Charles. I have suffered with pain and swelling in my knee .... She works with me providing any information needed for my job and to help improve the quality of my life. I’m truly grateful for her commitment to her patients. - RF
