⚪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-hour 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 will allow 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.
