Dr. Michelle Folsom is board-certified in family medicine and has a particular interest in women’s health, anxiety and depression disorders and pediatric and adolescent health. A native of Clinton, Maryland, Dr. Folsom decided to come to Calvert after completing her Internship and Residency at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia because of our sense of community and focus on family.

“I always knew I wanted to be a doctor and decided early in my training that I wanted to be a family medicine physician. I also knew that I wanted to work in a family oriented community. Calvert is a great place for me. I am close to my family; I met my husband here and we have started our own family here. And in Calvert we have plenty of room for all the four-legged members of our family!”

Dr. Folsom enjoys working with her patients toward a mutually agreed set of goals for their health. “To me, it’s about developing a plan that gets them healthier, preferably without medication. Sometimes the meds are necessary to get the patient healthy and keep them out of the hospital. But sometimes a little tweaking of a diet or the addition of some relaxation techniques can minimize future risks better than a pill. I see as much success with physical therapy, for example, as I do with pain meds, and without all the potential side effects.”
