It is our goal for you to visit us in your medical home for comprehensive, coordinated primary care instead of the more expensive Emergency Room or Urgent Care. We want to provide pediatric-oriented care, using our familiarity with your child’s medical history and our ability to provide consistent care and follow-up after your visit. We want to have you contact us to help before you head to the Emergency Room or Urgent Care (except of course in emergent life-threatening situations.)
Evening and Weekend Urgent On-Call Assistance
When our office is closed, if you have an urgent medical problem that you need assistance with, call our office at 301-681-6730 and press option "1". Please be ready to provide your child’s name, date of birth, and a return phone number. You will receive a return phone call as soon as possible within 30 minutes. Make sure your phone is on and accessible to receive your return call.
Weekend/Holiday Urgent Sick Visits
Weekend visits can be arranged for urgently sick children. On weekends and holidays, the best time to call the doctor is between 8:00 am and 9:00 am to discuss the best way of obtaining care for your child. The doctor on call is reached by calling 301-681-6730, pressing "1", then leaving a message.
