Emergency Coverage


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

  • Presidents Day

  • Memorial Day

  • Independence Day

  • Labor Day

  • Columbus Day

  • Thanksgiving Day

  • Christmas 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.
