Looking for a doctor in DC

I'm looking for a GREAT primary care physician in Washington, DC, preferably in/near Chinatown or Capitol Hill. I'd love someone who could see a new patient in the next week or two (ie, doesn't have a months-long waiting list) and who is part of a larger practice/clinic.

I had a doctor in Seattle with a wonderful bedside manner and that made a huge difference: she took time to listen to me, talked me through my options, and then made recommendations. She was open and non-judgmental, and I found it made a huge difference in my attitude towards health matters to have such a great doctor who I trusted so much. I'd love to find such a great doctor again here in DC, but it seems a lot harder here. I've asked friends/coworkers to no avail.
Snowflake request: I have a slight preference for a female doctor, but that's not a requirement. I will need this person to continue prescribing me ADHD meds, so someone who's not opposed to that would be great too (I have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist).
And yes, I know that saying I want a great doctor with no waiting list in downtown DC is a bit like saying I want a million dollars for free, but I figure it can't hurt to ask.
