After much consideration, and in an effort to protect the well-being of our community, we have made a decision to implement caregiver and visitor limitations at all MOH clinics that include:
No Visitors are allowed in the clinics
Only 1 caregiver can accompany a patient in the practice if they have no upper respiratory symptoms - upper respiratory symptoms include: a cough, fever of 101.1 and above, nasal congestion, runny nose or sore throat
Children age 15 or younger are not allowed in the clinic until further notice
The health and safety of our MOH patients and staff is our top priority. We recognize that these visitor limitations may cause concerns, so if you feel you have a special circumstance, please notify the front desk so a manager can discuss your situation.Visitors with flu-like symptoms are not permitted to visit our offices in order to protect patients and staff.
The following offices, Wheaton and Germantown have consolidated to our Rockville & Bethesda locations. In addition, our Mt. Airy office has consolidated to our Frederick location.
Cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer, and cancer that begins in the rectum is called rectal cancer. Cancer that starts in either of these organs may also be called colorectal cancer.
In the United States, colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men, after skin, prostate, and lung cancer. It is also the fourth most common cancer in women, after skin, breast, and lung cancer.
Visit the National Cancer Institute where this information and more can be found about Colon and Rectal Cancer or ask your cancer care team questions about your individual situation.
