This page has general information about after-hours emergency coverage and coverage when I am away. It is updated with specific dates and providers when I am out of the office for an extended period of time, such as a vacation or out-of-town conference.
EMERGENCY COVERAGE WHEN THE OFFICE IS OPEN FOR NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS
In a life-threatening emergency after office hours, please call my office at 703-761-3100, leave a message first, and press #-9-1-1 to mark the message urgent. If I cannot get back to you in the time you need, please go to your nearest hospital emergency room.
If you have a medicating psychiatrist, that person may also be available in an emergency if I am away or otherwise unavailable.
Note that the office is typically closed on:
New Year's Day
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Routine messages while I am out of the office should be left on my voicemail or sent via email and I will respond upon my return.
This same information will be on my outgoing voicemail message, my email vacation notification, and on my website.
