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:

  • 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.
