Updated Information (3/25/2020)
We are offering TeleVisits with extended hours for new and existing patients.
Mon-Fri 7am-9pm and Sat-Sun 8am-3pm
Please call (301) 869-9776 to schedule your TeleVisit.
Comprehensive Primary Care is keeping on top of all of the current guidance from the CDC as well as the Maryland Department of Health regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus). The safety and health of our patients and staff is our highest concern. At this time, these are the things we want to make sure all of our patients know.
If you are sick with a fever and cough please call the office. Do not come in for a walk-in appointment. We will triage you over the phone and let you know what to do. We are actively working on setting up a telemedicine program so that we will be able to conduct some appointments over a video chat. We are hoping that will be available in the next few days.
Any patient who has a known exposure to COVID-19 or patients who have traveled to any area with widespread COVID-19 but do not have current symptoms should be monitoring their temperature twice a day. Please stay home and try and avoid contact with many people. You should continue to watch for symptoms for 14 days. If you do develop fever, cough or shortness of breath please call the office. Do not come to the office.
If you have mild symptoms we are asking that you stay home and treat your symptoms with over the counter medications.
If you are over 60 or have chronic medical conditions you should avoid being around large groups of people to lower your risk of contracting COVID-19. Everyone should wash their hands frequently, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer and try to avoid touching your face.
As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have. The recommendations are changing on a daily basis so expect more information coming soon.
Thank you for trusting us with your healthcare.

Dear Valued Patients of Comprehensive Primary Care,
The COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus is a newly identified respiratory disease first detected in China. The risk to patients in the US, including Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia is still VERY LOW. There have been 3 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Maryland as of 3/5/2020. None in DC or Virginia. However this is an evolving situation. Precautions and preparedness for COVID-19 includes basic precautions similar to precautions for Flu season. As this is an evolving situation, this information may be updated here or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
- If you have cough, shortness of breath or fever, please avoid contact with others, except to seek medical care. Stay home from work or school for at least 24 hours after fever has resolved.
- If you have cough, shortness of breath or fever AND have been to China, South Korea, Japan, Iran or Italy in the last 2 weeks, please call the office prior to coming to the office, so we can make a safe plan for your care. You should avoid public places for 2 weeks after your return.
*PLEASE NOTE: We DO NOT have the ability to test for COVID-19 in our offices at this time.*
Keep Calm and Wash Your Hands
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
- Cover your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing.
- If you are sick, stay home from work or school.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Practice good health habits.
- Get your flu vaccine if you have not yet.
If you have further questions, please contact your healthcare provider, check our website and check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Again, the risk to patients in DC, Maryland and Virginia is still very low. But taking these basic precautions can help keep you, your family and your community healthy.
