Dr. Dora Adamopoulos
As an eye care provider in the Alexandria area for the last 25 years, Dr. Adamopoulos grew and established her primary practice in the Del Ray area. Over time, she and her team built strong community roots. They helped enrich the community by providing professional and compassionate care. Listening to her patients has always been her strong trait. Her patients’ overwhelming theme was the need to deliver medically based aesthetic care with treatments that have clinical backing and offer the best outcomes. Sticking with her Greek roots, she created SomaSou, which means “your body” in Greek.
It provides a place to allow patients to continue their journey to rebuilding vitality, strength, and confidence. At SomaSou, she created a warm and inclusive atmosphere where experienced healthcare providers will offer the best options for your skin, body, and weight concerns.
