Emergency Coverage - July/Aug 2018

July, 2018


I will be out of the office Friday July 27 through the following week.  I will return to the office on Monday, August 6, 2018.

During that time, I will be completely unreachable from Saturday July 28 – Saturday August 4, as I will be backpacking with my son’s scout troop in upstate New York and, I’m told, there is no cell service in that part of the Adirondacks.  

If you have a life-threatening emergency:


1)    If you have a medicating psychiatrist, your psychiatrist is your first call.

2)    If you do not have a medicating psychiatrist, you should call Dr. Sam Lashley, who will cover for me while I am gone.  He will be able to triage emergency situations and guide you to the proper resources.

3)    If neither your medicating psychiatrist or Dr. Lashley is available as quickly as you require, you should call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room.

Dr. Sam Lashley can be reached at 703-362-7416.  His contact information will also be on my website, on my outgoing voicemail message, and on my automatic response for email inquiries.

You are welcome to call or email while I am away about routine matters (scheduling) and I will respond to those messages upon my return, in the order in which they were received.
