how to SCHEDULE a visit

IN NON-URGENT PRIMARY CARE SITUATIONS:

To request a visit of any kind, please contact us 24/7 by Phone, Text, Fax, or E-mail

You will be asked to leave a message, providing the following patient info:

  • NAME
  • DATE OF BIRTH ...
  • WHY would you like the visit?  (sore throat, rash, fever, migraine, annual physical, BP check, etc.)
  • WHERE would you like the visit?  (at my home in Marshall, at my office in Middleburg, in my room at the Hampton Inn, by phone or video at my vacation condo in Nags Head, etc.)
  • WHEN would you like the visit (today before noon, this week one evening, Thursday between 2pm-5pm, anytime in the next 3 weeks, etc.)
  • HOW would you like our response?
    •  via Phone
    •  via E-mail

Our Response DURING WORK HOURS   (6am-6pm, Mon-Fri):

  • we check our messages at 6am, 10am, 2pm, and 6pm . . .
  • we will respond ASAP after those times, each week day.

Our Response AFTER WORK HOURS   (6pm-6am, weekends, holidays):

  • we will respond to all messages left after hours ASAP on the next business day.


IN URGENT PRIMARY CARE SITUATIONS:

If you consider your primary care situation to be urgent and do not feel it can wait, you may contact our physician urgently by calling him by phone at 1-833-362-8800 and following the phone instructions for Urgent Calls. 


(Depending on the nature of the call, this may result in a consultation fee.)

IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS:

If you are suffering from a life threatening situation, or from an urgent care situation that seems beyond the scope of a primary care physician, please seek immediate care from an urgent care center or a hospital emergency room -- whichever you deem most appropriate for your situation.

IF WE ARE UNAVAILABLE:

If our physician is not available on a given day (due to a full schedule, a medical conference, or for personal reasons), we will convey that on our phone's main message.  In such a case, for situations that you deem cannot (or should not) wait for our physician's return, please seek more immediate care from your office-based provider, an urgent care center, or a hospital emergency room.

New Patient Forms

All new patients must review, complete, and sign

a set of required forms prior to receiving services.


It is most efficient if this can be done in advance of your appointment.


However, if time does not allow for this, or if you do not have a printer available to print the forms in advance, our physician will bring blank copies of these forms to your first appointment for your review, completion, and signature.
