Avoid ER for cough, colds, flu, and covid - UNLESS difficulty breathing

Going to the emergency room for coughs, colds, fevers, and covid are never a good idea unless you are having difficulty breathing. If there's no difficulty breathing, instead of spending uncomfortable hours and hours in the ER, call us at 301-498-8880 to schedule an appointment with in the office or via telemedicine!

We prefer to take care of you when you are sick, but if we can't offer you a convenient time, go to an urgent care center rather than an emergency room. Remember - no ER for coughs, colds, and fever unless there is difficulty breathing.
