On-Call Doctor Assistance

Our office will be closed in observance of President’s Day on Monday, February 19th, 2018.

However, one of our pediatricians is always on call for urgent medical problems after hours/holidays and on weekends. The doctor on call may be reached by calling 301.681.6730 and pressing “1”, then leaving a message. When leaving your return call phone number, be certain to say your telephone number twice, slowly, and clearly; make sure your phone is on and accessible to receive your return call – a land line is preferable to a cell phone for reliability and clarity.

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.

For life-threatening emergencies, call “911” or proceed to the nearest emergency department.
