7:45 AM- 8:45 AM Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
If you call our office after hours, your call will be answered by our telephone system.
For urgent matters you will be directed to hang up and call our answering service at 240 -638-9757. The answering service is able to contact the physician on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please keep in mind, the answering service staff has no medical training and will be unable to answer your medical questions. They serve strictly to direct your after-hours calls to the on-call physician.
The answering service will take your message, your name, the patient’s name, and phone number and forward the information to the physician on call.
While you are waiting for the doctor to return your call, we request that you disarm the feature on your phone that does not accept calls from anonymous numbers (unblock your phone number).
Please keep your line open for the doctor's return call. If you have not received a return call within 30 minutes of your call, please call back.
If you call our office after hours for a routine matter you may leave a message on the office voicemail. Your message will be addressed the next business day.
