Meet Dr. Bloem - 10400 connecticut ave

Thank you for visiting my website. I am Dr. Fred Bloem and I have a holistic and integrative medical practice in Kensington, Montgomery County, Maryland. My office is very close to the Capital Beltway Connecticut Ave Exit 33 off I-495 and easily accessible for anyone in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area.

My healthcare journey started in my late teens when I decided to apply to medical school because I wanted to help patients with their health concerns. After graduating from medical school in Leiden, the Netherlands, I applied for internship and residency training in the United States. After an internal medicine internship, one year of anesthesiology residency, and two years of family practice residency, I started practicing primary care medicine in Maryland.

After practicing as a conventional, allopathic physician for several years, it became clear to me that Western medicine as it is being taught and practiced by most physicians today has significant limitations. One of the main concerns that I had was that many of the conventional medical treatments do not address the underlying causes of a patient’s illness. I recognized that many common diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and others had a correlation with obesity. However, like most physicians, I felt unprepared to help my patients lose weight.

Postgraduate training in bariatric medicine, bio-identical hormone therapies, nutritional medicine, training bio-oxidative therapies, intravenous therapies, injection therapies, and numerous other courses has made it possible for me to help my patients more effectively, more quickly, and with safer treatment methods and protocols

For more than twenty years I have considered myself a holistic and integrative physician. During this time, I have developed experience in helping patients with complex health concerns, including those with chronic Lyme disease and coinfections and cancer.

Besides helping patients with challenging health conditions, I also help patients with less serious chronic health conditions. Many patients come to my practice after having consulted with many other physicians or health practitioners. Others simply want a physician who will truly listen and who will understand what their needs are. Whatever led you here, you came to the right place. Because of my background in internal medicine and family medicine, I am comfortable treating adult men, women, and children with a wide variety of health concerns.

I look forward to meeting you!

Fred Bloem, M.D.
