My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internal medicine physician with a background in both inpatient and outpatient medicine, I work with each patient as a whole human being, rather than specific organ systems. With this personalized healthcare approach, similar to concierge medicine, I am able to help my patients understand and respect their bodies so they can prevent disease and better manage chronic conditions. I utilize my 20+ years of medical expertise to facilitate the process of achieving optimal health and wellness.

Communication is paramount to the doctor-patient relationship, and I spend extra time to develop meaningful relationships with my patients both inside and outside of the exam room. I enjoy sharing healthy cooking tips to improve nutrition, and we incorporate exercise, such as Pilates and Yoga to enhance flexibility, improve sleep quality and increase core strength.

I am one of a few female MDVIP-affiliated internists in the Washington, D.C. area. My practice is located in Bethesda, MD, serving the Arlington and McLean areas of Virginia, as well as the Potomac, Wheaton and Silver Spring communities of Maryland and Washington, D.C. I am affiliated with Adventist Healthcare Shady Grove Medical Center in Rockville, Maryland and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, and I always visit patients in those hospitals. As a primary care doctor board certified in internal medicine, I also have interests in preventive medicine, women’s health, nutrition and integrative health. I speak fluent English and Spanish.

from Robert in MD March 2, 2018 for Daphne Stamos Keshishian, MD

I have only been a patient of Dr. Keshishian for a few months but my wife Nancy was her patient during the last year of her life after the return of Nancy's breast cancer. Dr. Keshishian coordinated a complex plan of care that involved many physicians from a variety of specialties. She also found and contacted a number of doctors who were important in Nancy care.

Dr. Keshishian is responsive, thorough,, and caring. She always takes time to listen, provide information clearly, and answer question fully. I believe she has enhanced my health and is an excellent physician.

from Gus in MD March 1, 2018 for Daphne Stamos Keshishian, MD

Dr K. Doesn't feel like a cold room hospital doc everyone is familiar with, she really cares about me and I care about her. What she and her office has done for me has literally saved my life and increased greatly my quality of life even if that is just by knowing I have the most reliable and trustworthy medical care team I could ever ask for.

from Holli in MD March 1, 2018 for Daphne Stamos Keshishian, MD

After rotating through many primary care physicians who really didn't know me or my medical problems, I finally feel like I have found a medical home where I receive outstanding tailored to my specific health needs and problems. In addition, service is always provided in a rapid time frame.

from Tamar Joy in MD February 28, 2018 for Daphne Stamos Keshishian, MD

Dr. Keshishian has always responded warmly and expertly to any of my health-related questions and concerns. It's a pleasure to have her as my physician.

from John in MD February 28, 2018 for Daphne Stamos Keshishian, MD

My wife and I recently had our annual wellness exam with Dr. Keshishian. We've never had a doctor who showed such interest in our health and well being. The way she practices medicine, and the way she treats her patients, is how the medical system in this country is supposed to work!
