We make every effort to see established patients with acute problems on the same day you call. Please emphasize to our receptionist that you wish to be seen that day.
Lab Orders and Vaccinations: By Appointment Only
We offer advance or same day appointments for the following:
- Blood draws for tests that require fasting
- Urine collection

Please call our office prior to coming in to schedule your appointment. We do not accept walk-ins. There must be a medical practitioner order for any of these services. We will confirm your order and make sure all information is ready.
After Hours and Emergency Calls
Your medical care through IGIMG does not stop when our offices close. You may leave urgent or routine messages on either office line, 703-525-8863 or 703-573-9800, but be sure to follow the voicemail instructions closely!
If you are having a life threatening medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. If you are seen in an emergency room, please have the physicians there contact our office.
If you have a medical issue needing immediate attention, you may leave a message on our emergency line that our physician on-call will receive and return within approximately 15 minutes.
