Vaccine Update

We will be administering COVID-19 vaccines for children between the ages of 6 months to 4 years (up to the 5th birthday). Please note that we will only be offering the Pfizer vaccine.  The vaccine will include 2 boosters - one at 3 weeks after the 1st shot and 8 weeks after the 2nd shot (a total of 11 wees). If you are interested in having your child vaccinated at our office, please complete the COVID REGISTRATION FORM below, and we will contact you when an appointment becomes available. Your child must be a current patient with our office. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]. Thank you for your patience.


We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins. YOU MUST REGISTER BEFOREHAND 

Please do not bring your child if your child or anyone accompanying your child, has fever, cough, runny nose, or other sign of illness.  

Please review the VACCINE INFORMATION FACT SHEET for more information.


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Due to ongoing and rapidly changing recommendations from our national and local health department authorities, we will be taking the following steps to limit the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ensure the current and future safety of our patients, employees, and family members.

Telemedicine Sick Visits

Our staff is working hard to respond to this continuously changing situation. Accordingly, we are implementing telemedicine and telephone visits for children visits to minimize your exposure.  This means you will have a video visit with Dr. Choi that can be conducted on your computer or smart phone.

How to schedule a telemedicine visit:

  1. Call our office main number 301-984-9490 and our staff will schedule your telemedicine visit.  Our phone lines are open at 8am every morning.
  2. Our staff will send you a confirmation email with a link and passcode: 9490
  3. Review the Telemedicine Consent Form.
  4. At the time of your appointment, go to the link:
  5. At the Welcome sign-in, please enter CHILD’S NAME AND DATE OF BIRTH instead of your name (ex: Daisy Smith 01/01/2020)
  6. Please be ready for your visit at least 10 minutes before your scheduled call and be in a quiet, well-lighted space.

Financial Policy

The costs for telemedicine services will be billed to your health insurance plan, and most major health insurance carriers will waive all copayments and coinsurance costs associated with these visits during this time of crisis.  While as parents and guardians, you retain financial responsibility for any uncovered costs, our office also understands that we are in difficult times and will do our best to accommodate family personal financial situations. If there are any difficulties in paying any uncovered charges, please do not hesitate to reach out to our billing office.

Our office safety precautions

To ensure you and your child’s safety and limit any potential spread to the community we will take the following precautions: telemedicine visits, all staff and providers with direct patient care contact will be wearing masks and appropriate protective garb, and your exam room will be properly disinfected before your appointment. We ask that you call the office at 301-984-9490 upon arrival and that all able members wear masks while in the office.

Well-child check-ups

If your child is scheduled for a well-child visit, please notify us as soon as possible if any person coming to the check-up (parent or child) has any of the following:

  • cough or recent fever
  • exposure to anyone at your home with a fever
  • known direct exposure in the last 14 days to anyone who tested positive for COVID-19.

Our top priority is to ensure the safety of your children.  Thank you for reading this email and call our office if you have any questions

Additional Resources

This is a difficult time for all of us, however, we want to stress that our office is here to help you, and greatly appreciate your patience.

In peace,

The Medical Staff of Dr. John Choi
