Follow up appointments are required for a thorough discussion on laboratory/imaging findings and medical management.
We need a 3-day notice for prescription refills.
We need 24-day notice for appointment cancellation or reschedule. If no notice is given, the following will apply:
$100 fee for new patients
$50 fee for return patients
We are booked for months, thus not showing up for an appointment will take away the opportunity of another patient to be seen sooner.
Prior authorizations can take up to one week to complete.
If you are 15 minutes late, the appointment will need to be rescheduled.
We hate missing phone calls. Please leave a voicemail. We will return your phone call in a timely manner.
For non-emergency issues, we prefer the use of patient portal as it facilitates the patient-physician communication in a clear, accurate and timely fashion. Patient portal allows you to have direct access to Dr. Tashko.
In case of an EMERGENCY, do not send a patient portal message, instead, immediately call 911 or reach us via the on-call service at 301-658-3586 #2.
For new patients:
Please fill out the above forms prior to your appointment.
Arrive 15-30 min prior to your appointment.
Bring your ID and health-insurance card.
Bring with you the complete list of:
All the doctors you see, even intermittently. We need to be in contact with your doctors to coordinate, streamline and facilitate your care.
