Hi, I’m Dr. Nadim Hawa and I’m here to help you live your healthiest life and guide you to the preventative care that you deserve. I studied Gynecology and Obstetrics for over 12 years, and I specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures. My colleague likes to say that it is, “not your mother’s gynecological surgeries anymore,” and he’s right. The procedures I perform are non-invasive, same day surgeries, and with minimal recovery. My patients are doing regular activities such as driving within 48 hours after their surgery.
I encourage natural birth with minimal intervention. Knowing that Your age, values, beliefs, health, current situation, and future goals all play a role in your obstetrical care. I’m not here to scold you or pressure you into taking certain medications or undergoing specific procedures, I’m just here to give you the recommendations and guidance you need to live your best, healthiest life – whether you’re navigating the best birth control option for you, having menstrual problems, experiencing sexual dysfunction, or going through menopause.
Whatever route we decide to take in your healthcare, I’ll be here every step of the way to explain all your options and give my recommendations for what you should consider.

Meet Dr. Roopa Duggal
Roopa Duggal, M.D., founded Loudoun Women’s Health in fall of 2004, in 2012 she merged practices with Chauncey Stokes, M.D. and in the Summer of 2021 she started the next chapter in her career and became a part of the Capital Women’s Care family. Dr. Duggal was born in NY and raised in Northern Virginia. For her undergraduate education, she attended the University of Virginia where she received a BA in Chemistry with a specialization in Biochemistry. Dr. Duggal then completed both her medical degree and Obstetrics and Gynecology residency through the George Washington School of Medicine program in affiliation with Inova Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, VA and Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD.
Throughout her training and career, Dr. Duggal has volunteered her time and expertise to a number of institutions both at home and abroad. Some of her work includes teaching at-risk middle school children through the Higher Achievement Program in Washington, DC, volunteering with the Red Cross in Salamanca Spain, and working with Mother Teresa’s Center for Orphaned Children(Shishu Bhavan) and Free Clinic(Khalighat) in Calcutta, India. She also does health presentations for the middle school girls at Loudoun Country Day school and is a volunteer medical doctor at a sleep away summer camp she attended as a child in Rochester, NY (Hindu Heritage Summer Camp).
Dr. Duggal chose the field of Obstetrics/Gynecology because of her compassion towards women and children. She adheres to the principle that health is “a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”(WHO, 1948) and it is her strong belief that it is the right of every woman to receive competent and high quality healthcare. As is often the case here and around the world, many women do not have a voice or decision-making power when it comes to their own bodies, and therefore Dr. Duggal is committed to raising the voices of women and providing compassionate care. She strives to provide an environment where women are cherished, heard, and encouraged to flourish.
Dr. Duggal has been inspired to make a difference in the lives of Loudoun Women in part by people who have touched her life. First and foremost her father, who taught her to never hurt anyone or anything, but instead to help everyone and everything, and taught her to be patient. “It will happen if it is supposed to.” Also Mother Teresa, who she was able to spend a summer helping her mission. She would like to conclude with this story, told to her by a friend, which clearly expresses the single most important reason of why she dedicates her life to medicine:
One summer morning, after a severe storm the night before, a young boy and his grandfather were walking along the beach. The storm had washed thousands and thousands of starfish on the beach. They were strewn helplessly on the beach for miles, and were dying. Quickly, the little boy began picking up starfish and throwing them back into the water. The grandfather, somewhat puzzled, asked the boy, “What are you doing? There are so many starfish, it won’t matter if you throw some starfish back into the water.” The little boy picked up another starfish, glanced down at it for a moment, and replied, “It makes a difference to this one,” and then gently tossed it back into the ocean.
As an Obstetrician/Gynecologist Dr. Duggal is able to pursue her passion in educating, guiding and providing services to influence positive outcomes for mothers, their children, and to adolescents and women of all ages.
Erin is an Adult Nurse Practitioner, board certified by the American Academy Nurse Credentialing Center, and licensed by the state of Virginia.

Her goal is to provide the patient with the knowledge that they will need so that they understand the disease process, working together to improve their quality of life. This includes a holistic approach, as the physical aspect of a patient’s illness is not just considered, but also the emotional and spiritual components.
