Dr. DiFrancesco brings 22 years of experience in comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, neuroimaging and clinical research to her 15-year-old private practice. She is Board certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
"I have years of experience in diagnosing and treating mental illness, as well as maintaining the mental health of my patients," Dr. DiFrancesco said. "I have worked in many different areas in the mental health field; including community psychiatry, impatient psychiatry, addiction medicine, clinical research and finally in private practice."
Dr. DiFrancesco holds a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and earned her Medical degree from Temple University Medical School.
