In observance of Independence Day the office will be closed on Wednesday July 4th, 2018. However, one of our pediatricians is always on call for urgent medical problems on holidays, evenings and 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.
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. Visits can be arranged for urgently sick children.
For life-threatening emergencies, call “911” or proceed to the nearest emergency department.
We hope you have a safe and Happy 4th of July!
