About the Practice

At Capital Women’s Care - Bethesda, patients get all of their women’s health needs addressed. This professional and friendly team serves women in the Bethesda, Maryland area.

From young women dealing with contraception and painful periods, through pregnancy planning and postpartum during the childbearing years, to older women’s issues with menopause and osteoporosis, these doctors provide the care and compassion women want and deserve.

The OB/GYN team consists of three board certified and fellowship trained doctors and a Nurse-Midwife with over 20 years of experience delivering both high and low-risk babies.

Dr. Lewis Townsend focuses solely on gynecology and specializes in laparoscopic gynecological surgeries. Dr. John Gschwend works in both gynecology and obstetrics and has vast experience in women’s health surgeries. Dr. Deena Kleinerman and midwife Kimberly Severn, CNM both treat all women’s health needs, including gynecology, labor, and delivery.

Along with traditional OB/GYN services patients can receive cutting-edge MonaLisa TouchⓇ procedures at Capital Women’s Care - Bethesda. This is a non-invasive way to restore the female genitals including tightening the vagina and improving sexual response and confidence.

What’s more, patients can enjoy the convenience of in-office sonography services, allowing them to have everything they need right in the Bethesda office.
