Patient Info

New Patients

I am currently accepting new non-Medicare patients into my practice.   To schedule a first appointment, please call the office at (202) 293-8855.  

To ensure you receive a membership slot in my practice, I encourage you to go ahead and Sign Up via my website or call a Privia Membership Advisor during normal business hours at 888.774.8428.   Privia will also assist you in scheduling your first appointment.


Patients are seen daily on an appointment only basis. Please call the office during regular office hours to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are not accepted. Please keep in mind that patient emergencies do occur. I make every attempt to have you be seen at your scheduled appointment time but unexpected delays can occur. I appreciate your patience.

Prescription Refills

Refills will be refilled for up to  6-12 months depending on the condition. If your prescription has expired then most likely you are due for an office visit. If you are a Privia member, you can may request prescription refills, request appointments, access your personal health record, or send a secure message to your doctor by Logging In to your member website.

After Hours/Emergencies

For life threatening emergencies call "911" or proceed to the nearest emergency department. Please call the office number (202) 293-8855 for urgent after hours medical concerns. The answering service will page the doctor on call. If you have not received a return phone call within 30 minutes then call the answering service again and request to have the doctor re-paged. Prescriptions and prescription refills will be addressed during regular business hours only and will not be addressed by the answering service.

For non-emergencies, Privia members may also log into their member website and send a secure message to their doctor, or leave a voice message on your doctor's private Privia voicemail.

Cancellation Policy

Your appointment reserves a specific time for you. If you are not able to make the appointment you need to contact our office 24 hours in advance. If you have an early morning appointment and need to cancel, please call the answering service and leave the message with them.
