LabCorp remains active and open in our Silver Spring and Camp Springs offices but we kindly request all our patients to call us and schedule an appointment in order to avoid having patients in the waiting room. You might be asked to wait in your car if needed.
Appointments: As a response to the current status of Coronavirus Outbreak, our team has decided to limit the number of patients that will be seen in-person in our office. We want to mitigate the risk that may come with an in-person visit. Our offices are open and our doctors are seeing patients in-person, but we still encourage our patients to consider TeleVisits as the preferred option.
Most insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid are now covering telemedicine service through the “Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020”.
