Like many, we are monitoring the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the safety of our patients, employees and the community we are adjusting our office visit and sleep study policies.

DOCTORS VISITS

New patients and follow-up appointments with our physicians and physician assistants can be conducted via Telemedicine through Doxy.me. All Telemedicine visits will be billed through your insurance company. We are also conducting in-office visits.

In-Office Visits

For the safety of our patients and the staff we require all patients to wear a face covering or mask while in the office.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a nationwide shortage of personal protection equipment (PPE), the practice is unable to provide our patients with masks for their appointments. To help us ensure social distancing guidelines practice is requesting that only the patient and a caregiver come to the in-office appointment.

If you are experiencing any of the following, we request that you call our office immediately and we will reschedule your visit.

  • Fever of 100.4 or higher
  • Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
  • Dry Cough
  • New onset muscle pain
  • Exposure to anyone who is quarantined or has tested positive for COVID-19

If you are unable to accommodate the policies above or you are feeling ill, our providers are available to see you via Televisits.  Please call us at 703.729.3420 to discuss your appointment options.

IN-LAB SLEEP STUDIES

Starting May 1 Comprehensive Sleep Care Center will resume in-lab sleep studies. This is based on the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and CMS recommendation.  This is subject to change based on AASM, CDC, CMS, Government, LMG & Local Authorities.

All patients undergoing Titration Sleep Studies (CPAP, BiPAP, SPLIT, OA) will need to have a COVID-19 test completed prior to their sleep study. In addition, we ask that all patients that work in a medical office also be tested, regardless of the type of study being performed. Patients will not need a doctor’s order. You must make an appointment for testing at one of our office locations by calling 703-729-3420. We ask that you complete the test 5-10 days before your study, so your results will be back in time. If not, your study could be cancelled or rescheduled. We also ask that you self-isolate after your test until your study is completed.
