Dan Via is a pediatrician with Sentara Pediatric Physicians in Williamsburg. He has been in practice here for over 21 years. Supporting moms and dads in their journeys as parents has been immensely rewarding. Dan grew up in Charlottesville, attended Duke University, received a Master’s degree from the Juilliard School in New York, and then spent seven years as the principal bassist of the Virginia Symphony. He then returned to Duke for medical school, was a resident physician at the UNC-Chapel Hill Medical Center, and subsequently moved back to Virginia to begin practice in Williamsburg. In 2011, Dan suffered a significant spinal cord injury that initially left him paralyzed from the neck down. He was hospitalized for 4 months and underwent several surgical procedures. Graced with a miraculous recovery, he has a renewed vision of life and all of its’ possibilities. Dan’s wife, Susan, is a violinist and a member of the music faculty at William and Mary. They have 2 sons, Forrest and Nathan – one is a William and Mary graduate, and the other is finishing at James Madison University. Dan enjoys recumbent cycling, yoga, reading, and cooking.
