Services we offer:

  • Walk in Sick Appointments
    • Mon-Fri 8:30am-2pm
    • Sat (Silver Spring only) 8:30am-10:30am
  • Saturday (Silver Spring) and Sunday (Rockville) well visits
  • Early morning, Evening and Weekend hours
      It has been brought to our attention that your insurance company may begin to pass on copays and deductibles to the patients for visits that occur early morning, evenings, weekends and federal holidays that we are open.   The state of Maryland defines these “after hour” appointments as those that are scheduled before 8am or after 6pm Monday-Friday and all weekend appointments.  Not all insurance plans/packages are doing this but we will have no way of knowing which insurance plans will push this cost to the member until we bill the claim.  We recognize that these appointment times are ideal for many families and we will continue to be open 7 days a week to accommodate our families needs but please note when you are scheduling appointments during these flexible times that there may be an additional cost to you because of your insurance benefits.

Our CPR Instructors

She loves to teach and help our patients and became a certified CPR instructor to serve that passion.

She became a certified CPR instructor to further her knowledge in the medical field and to have a greater ability to meet our patients and serve the community.
