Maternal Fetal Associates Of The Mid-Atlantic (MFAMA)
Outstanding Care for You and Your Baby
Welcome to Maternal Fetal Associates of the Mid-Atlantic (MFAMA). Their premier team of Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists (Perinatologists) has a long tradition of serving women of the Greater Washington metropolitan area’s high-risk pregnancy needs.
An ultrasound with MFAMA – what to expect? Why have an ultrasound with MFAMA?
Most OB care is under a global fee and then additional services are billed to the patient by the Obstetrics provider. With MFAMA, since they are not the primary OB, they do not bill under a global fee and they will bill your insurance directly according to your insurance plan agreement.
You will have a comprehensive experience with full counseling about your ultrasound that is not usually provided by other providers.
They have state of the art ultrasound equipment with 3D and 4D capabilities
All the doctors in MFAMA are experts in Obstetric Ultrasound and are board certified in Maternal and Fetal medicine, and Genetics. They are all accredited by both national and international ultrasound organizations such as AIUM, SMFM, and ISUOG.
All studies are reviewed and signed by one of their MFM providers – Expert evaluation.
All their Ultrasound technologists are OB certified and highly trained.
All their sites are accredited to perform detailed target OB ultrasound and they are the only MFM practice accredited for Fetal Echocardiography.
You will have the chance to discuss all of the ultrasound findings with a Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor.
They will communicate all of your results to your doctor, and make recommendations to give you the best care possible.
In most cases you do not need a referral to be seen by MFAMA. It is best if you already have an OB or Midwife, but they can schedule you without a referral at any one of their 5 convenient locations.
Established in Maryland in1999, MFAMA has worked to provide professional, compassionate and comprehensive maternal and fetal care. Their first office opened in Northern Virginia in 2002 and demand for their services has outpaced their capacity for a single location. Although they started with just one office, they have expanded to five locations and six hospitals served in Northern Virginia. Drs. Hassan, Maghak, Elkousy, Jessie and Spiliopoulos have many years of combined experience in the field of Maternal Fetal Medicine and have developed strong relationships with local Obstetricians and Midwives. They continue to provide the highest level of care for both high risk and healthy pregnant women.
To maintain the standards of excellence women and their Obstetricians have come to rely on, all of their ultrasound technologists are registered diagnostic medical sonographers (RDMS) and MFAMA is one of the few practices in Northern Virginia with AIUM (American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine) certification for obstetric ultrasound as well as Fetal Echocardiogram. All of their physicians and ultrasound technologists are certified by either the fetal medicine foundation or the NTQR (Nuchal translucency Quality Review) for first trimester ultrasound screening, and they have all been certified for Transvaginal ultrasound cervical evaluation by CLEAR (Cervical length Education and Review) or Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF). Of course, all of their physicians are board certified in both Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Maternal Fetal Medicine.
They help community obstetricians by providing consultation and co-management of high risk patients when admitted to any of the following hospitals: HCA Reston hospital, HCA Stone Spring hospital, INOVA Loudoun hospital, INOVA Fair Oaks hospital, Novant Prince William hospital, and Novant Haymarket hospital.See more
