Calling Your Doctor
 
Dr. Bowes: (202) 709-9718
 
Leaving a detailed voice message is very helpful. All messages are confidential. Only Dr. Bowes listens to voice mail.

After office hours:

--Dr. Bowes checks her voice mail during non-work hours.

--Once there is a HIPAA agreement between you and Dr. Bowes, there can be Email exchanges. She will not respond to Text messages nor does she participate with any form of social media.

 
 
If there is an emergency, call the emergency department (ER) nearest you.
 
The following is a handy checklist for what to do:
  • Get to the point of your call quickly, especially if you've phoned after hours. (Have someone else call the doctor for you if you are unable to talk.)
     
  • Define your problems and symptoms. Write these down first, call and using the list, report them quickly and completely.
     
  • Ask the doctor what you should do and be prepared to write it down. Repeat what you are going to do.
     
  • Make sure you know if and when you should call back, or if you should come to the office.
