Qualifications and Experience
Rosemarie D. Rose, MD, has enjoyed refining her medical practice throughout her career. Starting in 1992, she practiced a full range of family medicine with Fairfax Family Practice and served as Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine for the Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2000, Dr. Rose suspended her clinical practice while starting a family. She continued work in the medical field as an online medical editor and later by co-founding a company dedicated to improving the quality of continuing medical education for physicians.
Dr. Rose returned to clinical practice in 2007 working with our military veterans. Searching for a deeper understanding of diseases that were not well managed by conventional medical practice, she first completed specialized training in amino acid supplementation for the treatment of neurotransmitter disease. Thereafter she began a comprehensive course of study through the Institute of Functional Medicine. Before joining Steinmetz Medical Associates, she had a solo practice providing consultations in Functional Medicine as well as amino acid therapies for conditions like ADHD, fibromyalgia, migraine, and Parkinson’s Disease.
With her colleagues at Steinmetz Medical Associates, Dr. Rose is able to offer her patients the breadth of care and services necessary to achieve a truly integrative approach to health. She continues to add to her knowledge base with advanced practice seminars and will soon begin studying medical acupuncture. She enjoys learning each patient’s health goals and planning with them the best course of treatment to achieve those goals.
Verified Patient Reviews
Very friendly, professional and attentive. That's the most time I've spent actually talking to a doctor in as long as I can remember.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Rose. She listened carefully and did not hesitate to order appropriate tests and recommend helpful supplements and lifestyle changes.
I cannot emphasize how much I appreciate Dr. Rose's interest in my medical concerns, and her approach to functional medicine. I have waited decades -literally- for a doctor to be willing to try to put the pieces of my puzzle together. I am so over other doctors not willing to look beyond their one organ of interest. We have some detective work to go, but we are on the path to getting my health back.. Thank you, Dr. Rose!
Dr, Rose was incredibly helpful, and spent a lot of time getting to know me and asking questions that I wouldn't have originally thought had anything to do with the problem I was having, but it turns out they did! Dr. Rose's thorough and friendly manner made sure I walked out of her office feeling like I had actually received the care I needed, and not just someone rushing me through to get to the next patient.
Dr. Rose is patient and knowledgeable. She takes the timely listen and to explain. I enjoyed the time I spent with her and I highly recommend her professional expertise. Also, the office staff was just wonderful!!
It was a very positive experience. She spent a lot of time with me and I felt the exam was thourough. I recommend Dr. Rose and this whole group wholeheartedly.
Dr. Rose, once again, was wonderful. Excellent bedside manner and superior knowledge of her medical science. Has an uncanny ability to turn the most confusing lab results into plain English. Much appreciated!
She was very thorough, knowledble and caring, and seemed to really look at my overall health picture.
What doctors SHOULD be like, but so very few are.
Finally, finally, a doctor who cares! :)
Dr Rosewas very thorough and caring and gave me immediate feedback as well as a plan to move forward. I am so happy that I went and feel hopeful about the problems I am having
Extremely smart doctor who showed compassion and listened to all my questions.
It is a fantastic overall practice and Dr. Rose is particularly wonderful.
Dr Rose is patient and thorough. she is kind and looks at the whole picture. She is the best doctor I have seen. I am a RN and have worked with and around many doctors. She is by far the best!
Dr Rose's approach to medicin is realistic and practical. there was no rush to the visit, she is very thorough and wasn't quick to offer a prescription to satisfy the patience. I'm so glad I finally found a doctor who takes a functional approach instead of a pharmaceutical "profit" approach.
Dr. Rose did a good job of making me feel heard, but a combination of how far from me the office is with her fondness for supplements means I probably won't be going back.
I could not recommend her highly enough. She has gotten to the root of many of my chronic medical issues and I am now living a much better life thanks to her and the Steinmetz Center's innovative integrative approach.
VERY good doctor.
Thorough, caring, knowledgeable and patient with the patient. What more could you ask for?
Wonderful clinician! Very thorough in collection of medical history and took all my personal concerns seriously. Her calm manner made me feel completely at ease. I will definitely tell my friends and family about her!
Exactly what I needed.
Dr. Rose was very thorough and did not rush through the appointment. She took the time to ask a lot of questions of me and answer the questions that I had. I also appreciated that she didn't suggest that I get lab tests done that she didn't think were necessary at this point and preferred to wait and see what the results were of running a few basic tests.
Excellent. Extremely responsive.
Like night and day from having met with a different MD. I was impressed by her attention to detail, her medical knowledge and her high level of compassion. I wish I had known of Steinmetz Center years before.
She listened to what I had to say, probed with additional questions and provided easy to follow recommendations that were written down for future reference. Her holistic approach is so refreshing from the typical MD who just wants to give you a drug and send you on your way.
Dr. Rose is excellent and the Steinmetz Center is exactly what I am seeking in health care. This is a practice in which the patient is a person, not an appointment to get through. They take the time here to find out about the whole picture. I am very impressed. There is not a sense that insurance or corporate goals are primary; these doctors practice medicine based on their knowledge and conscience, which are considerable.
Dr. Rose is the doctor I've been looking for all my life. I am so incredibly happy to have found her. She looked at me as a whole patient with a lifestyle and history, not just a collection of symptoms and habits.
Dr. Rose presents herself well--she promises she will get to the root of your problem by examining you fully, with an open mind. What she fails to tell you is that she is just attempting to push the expensive products the practice sells and will be billing you 200-300% more for whatever service, medication, or test you need. My advice: steer clear of Dr. Rose. Unless you have infinite funds to pay for unnecessary medical expenses, Dr. Rose is not for you.
I'm so glad I found Dr. Rose!!! This was my 4th appt with her (1st was Nov 2012). She is so caring, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and has helped resolve my various maladies without prescription drugs. Our philosophies are the same: find out WHY something is happening to me and treat that vs treating only the symptoms.
She seems to be exactly what I was looking for in a doctor. I am excited about working with her to fine tune my health.
Dr. Rose is an excellent practitioner and the only one who has helped me decrease my migraines (this includes having seen a DC-area "Top Docs" neurologist, who gave me a prescription and sent me out the door). I have never been rushed, she listens attentively, and I feel lucky to have found her.
She is excellent! Once in a lifetime find!
Once again I had a great appointment with Dr. Rose. She makes going to the doctor a breeze and something that I don't have to dread. Because of the office's online capabilities, I was able to submit my concerns to Dr. Rose prior to my appointment. When I arrived she wasted no time asking me about why I was there. She followed up on what we discussed at my last appointment (thoroughly) then she went right into discussing today's concerns. Since she already knew why I was there, she prepared herself with possible causes for my problems and had treatment methods in mind. I highly recommend Dr. Rose or anyone at the Steinmetz practice!
Dr. Rose is great! She makes getting treatment and visiting the doctor a breeze! I have a number of issues, which I have been to other doctors about. Never have I received a plan of action, explanation of correlation of problems, or felt like I may actually be closer to treatment! I look forward to my next appointment with Dr. Rose!
My visit with Dr. Rose was wonderful, again. I think we're on the path to "fixing" me. She's very kind, understanding, and genuinely interested in figuring out what's wrong and getting at the best treatment plan.
Dr. Rose was very pleasant and understanding. She listened closely to all my issues and concerns and asked probing questions to get at the root of my problems. She really took the time to look at the whole picture and consider how to proceed instead of just giving me a blanket treatment plan. I look forward to meeting with her again after my lab results are back.
She is the first doctor that looked at me as a whole. She reviewed a lot of my medical records and asked questions that surprised me. I have many tests pending, but I feel better from the few adjustments made to my medication and supplements.
Dr. Rose is probably the most personable and down to earth doctor I have ever seen. Holistic M.D.'s are a rarity in Northern Virginia and I feel blessed to be seeing a doctor who doesn't push me out the door with a drug.
Very good consultation
She was great very personably and listened intently to all my issues
Dr. Rose is wonderful. She takes the time to listen to you, she is calm & collected, knowledgeable, and she takes a genuine interest in her patient's well-being. I'm beyond grateful that I found her and that I finally have a doctor I can call my family doctor.
She is super thorough and attentive.
Excellent doctor, takes time to figure things out and more importantly, listen.
