Movement is essential to life.  When orthopedic and neurologic conditions become barriers, I find a treatment pathway personalized to you.

A Virginia native, Dr. Fred Bagares studied biology at George Mason University and earned his osteopathic medical degree from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona.  He completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at the prestigious Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago of Northwestern University.  To broaden his understanding of the musculoskeletal system, he then completed a fellowship in sports and spine medicine. Dr. Bagares is board certified in rehabilitation medicine and sports medicine through the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.  His clinical interests include biomechanics, rehabilitation medicine, pain science, spine care, electrodiagnostic medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound, and medical education.

Our Approach

Simple.  Direct.  Transparency.

After working in an insurance based model, running from room to room for a 7 minute discussion to discuss only one body part was not how I envisioned taking care of my community.

To take care of a person you need to hear their story and examine the ENTIRE body.  At MSK Direct, we prioritize your story and experience with our clinic.  If you have pain in more than one area I make time to listen to everything because the body works as a sum of very intricate parts.  I focus on the bigger picture.

Care should be easy.

I am not in network with any commercial insurances or Medicare/Medicaid.  However, I can still prescribe, refer, and order testing where necessary.  You may want to check with your insurance if you have out of network benefits.  Also please check out how you may receive reimbursement through Reimbursify!

You can use FSA without any problems. For HSA, most HSA allows patients to use their funds to pay for medical services.  However, please ask your HSA provider if you can use it to pay for our services.

Yes, you can use your insurance if we decide labs and imaging are the next best step.  However, I will make sure to direct you where to go for the best value in town!

If your commercial insurance offers out-of-network reimbursement, you can submit the superbill to them.  Reimbursify is an app to make this process simple.  However, we cannot guarantee that your insurance company will reimburse you.
