We are working to continue to provide care during these difficult times.

Balancing the demand of taking care of our patients while promoting social distancing strategies has been challenging. Although we would like to continue to take care of every patient as we were pre-COVID-19, we have made several steps to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19 while taking care of our patients and our staff during these challenging times:  First, we have temporarily closed down three of our six offices; currently we are only scheduling patients at our Fairfax, Fair Oaks, and Loudoun locations. Second, we have begun evaluating the urgency of both current and previously scheduled appointments.
Patients presenting with symptoms that are considered “higher-risk” will be scheduled with a standard physical visit at one of our offices.
Patients presenting with symptoms that are considered “lower-risk” will be asked to schedule their appointment or convert their existing appointments through telemedicine/telehealth/virtual visits. We have partnered with a secure, HIPAA compliant telehealth platform called doxy.me. Our staff will send you an email link invitation to join your provider’s virtual waiting room. While these visits do not replace an in-person evaluation and examination, we can still learn about your condition/concern and often provide recommendations and future treatment strategies while we wait for the COVID-19 threat to decrease. If during this virtual visit a physical visit is recommended, we will make that recommendation. If you feel your condition requires a hospital or ER visit, we can help triage your concern to prevent avoidable ER/hospital visits.
Patients who have or want to have elective procedures considered “lower-risk”, will be added to our Wait List and will receive scheduling priority once we can responsibly open our schedules again.
Ultimately, if you have been referred to our office, or feel you have an anorectal and/or colorectal condition that needs attention, please contact us. We will continue do everything we can to help you like we have been for over thirty years.
