Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

(Updated May 7, 2020)

Our primary goal at Bethesda Medical Associates is to do our best to keep you safe and healthy, in particular during the current coronavirus pandemic.

We are available day and night, and are prepared to serve as an up-to-date COVID resource for you as we all navigate this challenging time together.

NEW-- We are now offering telehealth to allow you to connect with your physician. 

This allows you to access your physician by video using your computer or cell phone, as well as by telephone and the Athena patient portal. If you have been using other means to contact your BMA physician (MDVIP portal, email) we encourage you to explore the Athena portal. Please contact the office if you would like to learn how to access the Athena portal.

Telehealth allows us to work together on acute issues, routine follow-up visits, chronic care disease management, medication management, review of tests or laboratory results, and lifestyle coaching. We expect to be using telehealth as another way of working with you well after the pandemic is over.

We Are Open

As of May 7, Governor Hogan has removed the restriction on non-urgent medical care in Maryland. We will be rescheduling visits that we were required to cancel, utilizing telehealth visits as much as possible, and appreciate your flexibility during this unpredictable time.

Our temporary office hours are from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Thursday, and 9 am to 4 pm on Friday. When the office is closed all physicians remain available through their answering service as usual. All visits must be by appointment; we cannot accommodate 'walk-in' visits at this time.

We will have limited staff in the office each day. Our laboratory is open by appointment.

Our dietician, Jessica Murgueytio, will continue to provide consultations through telehealth.

For the protection of you and our staff, we have instituted the safety procedures below.

Office Safety Procedures

Those with respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) or other potential COVID-19 symptoms cannot be seen in the office.

We will meet those with scheduled visits at our office entrance, which will be locked when you arrive.  Please put on your mask or facial covering and sanitize your hands before coming inside. Your temperature will be checked at the door, and you will be escorted directly to the examination room or lab.

To avoid unnecessary contact with other patients and visitors, we are requesting that anyone who accompanies a patient to the office either wait outside the office, or stay with the patient throughout the visit, including the examination room. The companion will also be required to be screened by our staff for COVID symptoms and fever, and to wear a facial covering when inside the office.
