Which Appointments May Still be Conducted In Person?

We suggest that first time, new patient appointments be conducted in person as well as those for patients without access to a smartphone, computer or tablet. Other exceptions would include:

  • Neurological Testing – We will help with coordinated care, as needed, with the Inova Neurology Team.
  • Physical Therapy and Rehabilitative Care – We will help with coordinated care, as needed, with Inova Rehabilitative Services that may or may not be scheduled in-person depending on your individual treatment plan. Please discuss what is needed with your provider prior to scheduling.
  • Pre-surgical Evaluation and Testing – We will assist you to schedule in-person visits for your pre-surgical evaluation and testing.
  • Physiatrist – If in need of a physiatrist to review your care, we will make referrals and coordination as needed, noting a visit may or not necessarily be in-person.
  • Post-surgical Care – We will assist you to schedule in-person visits, such as nurse visits or suture or staple removal as directed under the discretion of the overseeing provider and/or outpatient rehabilitative services.
