COVID-19 INFORMATION

10/2020 update:  We have resumed normal hours.  We will maintain mask wearing and other precautions to protect our patients and staff.  As appropriate, our doctors are happy to see you in the office, in the parking lot, or on a televisit.

TESTING

  1. We have adequate Covid-19 testing supplies.  Results are returning in about three days, but could take longer if there is a surge of infections in the country. Let us help you determine if you need to be tested.

  2. ​We are now able to test for antibodies to Covid-19 through LabCorp using the Roche Elecsys® Anti-SARS-CoV-2 test. This test does not have cross-reactivity to other coronaviruses. It is not known if having a positive antibody test confers immunity to Covid-19. Patients interested in antibody testing should set up a televisit with one of our doctors to discuss the test prior to having their blood drawn at our office. 

 

PATIENT CARE

  • Established patients should contact the office and schedule a televideo visit. 

    • We can test you in your car if you need a test.

  • New patients can be accommodated as well but must be seen at the office either in your car or in the office for the initial assessment. Please call the office to set up a visit. 

  • We are seeing patients for more than just Covid-19. For many things we can see you via a televideo visit.  Our goal is to keep you out of the emergency room or urgent care. 

  • We still offer preventative care services including physicals, forms completion, and vaccines.

    1. Patients without respiratory symptoms are seen at separate times in the schedule from those with symptoms.

    2. We see sick patients in our protective gear.

    3. We see well patients while wearing a surgical mask (and we ask you to wear one too) to reduce the risk of asymptomatic transmission of Covid-19.

    4. We clean our exam rooms and facilities frequently.

 

COVID-19 VIRUS

Covid-19 is a very difficult disease. No one is immune and everyone is at risk.  Social distancing and staying at home unless absolutely necessary is critical to slow its spread. Please wear a mask at all times while out in public. Its symptoms are very vague.  Many seem to spread it without symptoms, but if someone is sick, the chance of spread is greater. If you are sick in any way, please stay home and away from others, keep your hands clean and cover your mouth and nose if you cough.

There are no treatments for Covid-19, so affected patients need to be monitored. Please notify us immediately if your symptoms start to worsen such as fever greater than 100.4F and/or you have difficulty breathing.  If you feel your life is in danger, please go to the emergency room.

Please visit the Fairfax County Health Department website for additional Covid-19 information.
