Hours of Operation: Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
LAB HOURS 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for routine lab tests ordered by your doctor on a walk-in basis.
TIPS REGARDING BLOOD WORK- If you are coming in to do your labs prior to your physical exam, coming 2-3 days prior is ideal. If additional tests needed to be added onto the blood that was already drawn, this is often possible within a few days of your lab visit. When we ask you to fast for labs, we mean a 10 hour fast. You may still have black coffee, unsweetened tea, and water prior to labs. We encourage you to drink lots of water while fasting. Contact the office if you have concerns regarding your ability to fast, and we can provide guidance. In general, the lab is less busy later in the week and in the afternoon.
Telephones are answered from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday–Friday.
WEATHER UPDATES WILL BE POSTED HERE WHEN NECESSARY. OUR OFFICE GENERALLY FOLLOWS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN REGARDS TO WEATHER RELATED CLOSURES, BUT WE MAKE A CASE BY CASE DECISION. When the federal government is closed, AND the metro is closed, you can assume we will be closed too. If the office is going to open late or be closed, we will post that update on the website by 7:00 a.m. We also call patients who are on the schedule and would be affected to let them know when we are opening late, closing early, or closed for the day.
FLU SHOTS ARE AVAILABLE IN OUR OFFICE on a walk-in basis from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. Patients 65 and over should get a high dose version called FLUZONE. Regarding the availability of FLUZONE: please call to confirm we have FLUZONE in stock the day you want to come in. We receive the vaccine in batches.
