Specialty Referrals

If your child needs a referral to a specialist, because of our affiliation with Children’s National, we can often facilitate a timely referral to their specialists. Our goal is to make every effort to schedule appointments for our patients with Children’s National specialists.  When necessary, we can provide you with a list of specialists in the area who we recommend when we are unable to get a timely specialty appointment at Children’s National. Please note that when scheduling an appointment with a specialist, you need to verify that that provider participates with your insurance. If you have an HMO or POS plan, you will also need to call our office and select the correct extension to request a referral at least 48 hours before the specialist appointment. If you have any questions regarding referrals, please contact your insurance carrier.

Our History

Dr. Feroli, Dr. Mella, and Dr. Pedreira started this practice in 1968. Since then Dr. Feroli, Dr. Mella and Dr. Pedreira have retired from the practice and have been spending time at home with friends and family. Our group was located in Montgomery Village for over 35 years and are now located in Gaithersburg. We have been repeatedly cited in the Washingtonian Magazine's listing of best pediatricians in the Washington area, as most recently as March 2010. One of our members was named Pediatrician of the Year in 1998 by the Montgomery County Pediatric Society. While an independent practice has been maintained, we were selected for affiliation with Children’s National Medical Center in 1998.

Accepted Health Plans

At Drs. Roseman, DeSouza, McHugh, & Dubelman we participate in many managed care plans and see patients with traditional insurance. Many plans require that you make a copayment at the time of your visit. To make it as easy as possible for you, we accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards at our offices.

Some insurance plans may require that you get authorization from them before you visit us. Since this differs by plan, please check with your insurance company so you can receive complete benefits from your coverage. We also have trained in-house specialists who can answer many of your insurance questions.

To find out if a particular physician or clinician participates with your plan, please contact our office or your insurance company.
