Inclement Weather/Snow Closing Policy

In case of inclement or snowy weather that delays or closes local schools/governments, I try to come into the office if at all possible.

I do not necessarily close if the public schools or local/Federal governments are closed.


To find out if the office is open:

  • The first thing I do is change my outgoing voicemail message to reflect the current date and my status (open, closed, opening late or closing early). Please call my office at 703-761-3100 to see if the office is open before traveling.
  • Once I have made a decision, I will call or email individual patients as early as I can. For patients I see early in the morning, I will email (if I have your email) as soon as I make a decision, typically by 7am. I will call patients as early as 8am. NOTE: Phone calls will come from an unpublished number if I am calling from home. I will leave a voicemail message when possible.
  • If you hear my regular message when you call my office and it is after 8am, it means that I am open as usual.

Obviously, if you feel you cannot travel safely to my office for a scheduled appointment, please call the office to reschedule or cancel as necessary.
