Jivana Care


At Jivana Care in Bethesda, Maryland, family medicine specialist Gezzer Ortega, MD, and the team understand the importance of delivering multifaceted primary care. For patients age 12 and up, the practice offers preventive care and treatment for a broad range of conditions, like diabetes and HIV.

Jivana Care strives to be a practice that patients can trust with all their health care needs. The team invests in the latest technology and medical practices to ensure their patients receive the most contemporary care available. The practice offers allergy testing, onsite blood work, and lab testing, so patients don’t have to travel to different clinics to get the care they need.

The team at Jivana Care also offers routine and travel immunizations, immigration physicals, and women’s health care. For patients with arthritis, chronic pain, and other conditions that require pain management, the practice prescribes medical cannabis.

The providers at Jivana Care consider mental health to be an important part of overall wellness. The team provides comprehensive care for anxiety, depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other common mental health conditions.

Many patients with mental health disorders also struggle with addiction. For those addicted to prescription opioids and other controlled substances, the team offers Suboxone® treatment. This doctor-supervised medication minimizes withdrawal symptoms to help patients wean off of opioids with minimal risk of early relapse.

At Jivana Care, patients on Medicare have access to remote patient monitoring through Accuhealth, which allows the team to assess the health care needs of these individuals 24/7.
