Quality, Caring Medical Care
NEW PATIENTS: Dr. DiFresco and Dr. Fine are currently accepting new patients, but due to a limited number of new patient openings, they are unable to do "meet and greet" consultations. They are available for new patient appointments scheduled as complete physical exams or as problem-oriented visits. They will then advise each patient on appropriate timing for follow up.
MEDICARE PATIENTS: Effective April 1, 2020 Bethesda Physicians will be opting out of Medicare and operating solely as a fee-for-service practice. Please click on the Medicare Patients tab (top of this page on right) for more details regarding this change.
Bethesda Physicians, PC in Bethesda, MD, is an internal medicine practice caring for patients over the age of 12 years, through adolescence, young adulthood, middle age and elder years. Our philosophy for the practice of medicine is simple yet comprehensive: we believe that the most important tools in providing quality medical care are time and availability. These, in conjunction with up-to-date medical knowledge, allow us to provide medical care customized to our patients' needs.
We provide comprehensive care for our patients: full physical exams for men, women (including Pap smears), adolescents and elderly patients. We draw blood tests on-site, and when needed, do rapid laboratory tests for many acute illnesses.
We are available to our patients for same day appointments when an urgent problem arises. We manage chronic, complicated problems as well, and help arrange for specialty referrals when necessary. While providing medically necessary care, we are also aware of the costs and try to control your expenses.
We are a fee for service practice, meaning we do not contract with insurance companies for payment. This allows us to offer our patients longer appointment times to address their needs. We make every effort to have laboratory tests, X-rays and specialty referrals done within your insurance network.
PRESCRIPTION REFILLS: The most efficient way to get you medications refilled is to call your pharmacy and ask them to send us an electronic refill request. This ensures accuracy of the medication name and dose. It also avoids duplicate prescriptions which may affect coverage by your insurance company.
