Office News

PLEASE NOTE:
(Updated 3/25/2020)
Notice for our patients: Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are making every attempt to protect the health of our patients and for this reason are currently segregating our well patient appointments and our patients with COVID19 symptoms. We respectfully request that you do not walk in for sick appointments but call our office instead for instructions at our main number (301) 645-1133.

In an effort to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to protect our most vulnerable population, we are limiting the number of visitors to our office. We respectfully request that only ONE parent/legal guardian bring the patient in for their visit and that you do not send the patient in with a relative that is considered a part of the vulnerable population (over 60 or one that has underlying serious health conditions). We appreciate your cooperation with our disease prevention measures. We would like to assure you that we are following CDC guidelines for the decontamination of our office and are following these procedures vigilantly.

For our patients with COVID 19 concerns, please call us first with the child(s) symptoms and possible exposure circumstances. We are currently offering Telehealth appointments with a provider if the child has a fever with symptoms of respiratory illness (coughing, difficulty breathing). We request that you call to schedule a Televisit appointment or speak with our nurse or provider for direction. Since we do not have the capability to test for Coronavirus in our office, it is likely that the provider will need to arrange for testing if the patient meets the criteria. Most people do not need to be seen unless they are in acute distress and providers are requesting that people stay out of the ER and treat the patient’s symptoms as you would the flu. Keep the person isolated until they are no longer running a fever and coughing.

Local COVID-19 Evaluation Sites & Testing Locations: For patients that are having fever, cough and shortness of breath, Righttime Urgent Care is accepting patients for evaluation and treatment only but not for testing. Ft. Washington ER is accepting ALL patients for evaluation that are symptomatic for COVID-19 (Fever, Cough and shortness of Breath) both with or without known contact. You do NOT need to be a PG County resident. They ask that you call their ER upon arrival at (301) 292-7000 and wait outside while they prepare an isolation room for you. They do have tests available if they find that you meet the criteria for testing.

St. Mary's Drive Thru Pavillion Testing Center: (Available to St. Mary's County residents ONLY).
St. Mary's Hospital has a drive thru testing location set up outside St. Mary's Hospital. They need an order from your Doctor to be faxed to them prior to your arrival so you will need to contact your provider's office first to see if you meet the qualifications and if so have them send in the order. The drive thru pavillion is open daily until 4 pm

Children's Hospital has drive thru testing on designated days and times. You must have a referral sent in by your provider and an appointment will be scheduled for you.

For people in the Northern part of the state John Hopkins is screening people outside the ER and only if they meet the criteria for testing will test them. They said if you are in acute distress then by all means come to the ER but otherwise call your Dr., isolate the patient and treat for the symptoms at home.

The CDC recommends several everyday preventative steps that can prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like COVID-19 or the Flu. These include:

1) Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the restroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water when they are visibly dirty.
2) Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
3) Avoid close contact with people that are sick
4) Stay home when you are sick
5) Cover your sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash can
6) Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes

Please note that information from the CDC about coronavirus (COVID-19) changes often and that we are closely monitoring the situation.

Please contact our answering service at (301) 609-5235 for any urgent medical matters that occur when the office is closed to be connected to the provider that is on call.

In the Event of an Emergency

Please call 911. For urgent medical questions or advice during office hours please call the office, and after office hours, call our answering service at 301-609-5235 and your call will be returned by the physician on call.
