Who we are seeing
Your health and safety are always our top priority. We strongly encourage patients to protect themselves at these times; we have hand sanitizer available throughout our office and require that all patients wear a mask when coming in for an appointment. Our staff is sanitizing the waiting room and procedure rooms throughout the day, and we are scheduling appointment times further apart in order to minimize the number of patients in our waiting room. We are also offering “telehealth” appointments if you prefer.
If you have any doubts at all, please call (202-363-6844) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our office would be more than happy to speak to you. Please know that we are open and there for you should any concerns arise.
We are so proud of our staff, current and former, who are doing all they can to assist with the current COVID19 outbreak. As Lloyd Minor, Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine, said: “No one has backed away; everyone has leaned in”. While the current times are tough, we will make it to the other side with the strength and help from those around us. We appreciate all these amazing people who have absolutely stepped up to the challenge.
In our office, we are working with essential staff that assist Dr. Carter with emergent and necessary cases. We couldn’t be more thankful to our staff, who have truly risen above and beyond expectations.

While they might have left our office, all of Dr. Carter’s former medical assistants have never left our hearts. They have all gone on to achieve great things, and are all doing their part in fighting this pandemic.
