Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance cover my visit?

We accept the following insurances:

  • Carefirst
  • Anthem
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO/PPO plans
  • Aetna HMO/PPO plans
  • Medicare
  • DC MEDICAID plans

We are scheduled to begin accepting these plans:

If you do not have any of these coverages, we can bill your insurance under your out of network benefits (you may have to pay a slightly higher copay amount for out of network services).

What are some things I should know about your office?

We are different in several important ways from a typical office. We are paperless and encourage you to fill everything out online ahead of time, as we don't collect information at the desk when you come in. We encourage you to communicate through the patient portal and self-schedule online so we can truly meet your needs and give you the best care.

Can I fill out my forms online?

YES! This is one of the things that is different about our office. We encourage you to fill your forms out at the following link.

Can I get a same-day appointment?

We always try and keep a few options open, and prioritize patients who have been seen at our office before for same day visits. We cannot guarantee availability on the same day but if you contact us we will make every effort to see you that day.

If you are new to the practice, you may be able to be seen on the same day if there is availability.

Do you do house calls?

We love doing house calls and will be starting this in late 2022! Within 15 miles of our Metro Center, DC office, I will travel to you for a $30 transportation fee. Please message us if you're out of this area, we may still be able to work with you.

We can also do "work calls" (quick visit with you at the office to resolve an uncomplicated health issue discreetly).

House calls are limited to certain days for certain geographic areas. Not all services or types of visit are available for a house call.

Can I get a group of friends together for a visit someplace?

We have done some amazing things with our unique traveling group visit format!

Want to have a group of friends over for movies and pap smears? We can do that! Want to have a STI testing and "ask a provider" night with some friends? We can do that too!

(Please note all screenings are done one at a time individually in a private area, and then you return to the group).

Please message for these options. A deposit is required in advance and registration is required in advance in our EMR for all participants.
