Dear Patients,    

I will be away for the holiday  beginning  Saturday December  21st , and returning to the office on Monday December  30th. During this time, I will not be available by cell phone or portal.

If you have a medical concern during regular office hours, my office phone will open at 8am and Chris, Amy or Barb will be happy to assist you.  Please note that the phones may close earlier than usual on December 24th and 26th.  And my office will be closed on Christmas Day December 25th.

If you have an urgent matter after regular office hours, or if the office phone has closed early for the holiday, medical advice will be available via my triage nurse Barb, by calling 443-346-4696.

For prescription refills, please try to get them filled prior to December 24th, otherwise please call 410-647-8829 as early in the day as possible as office phone hours will vary during the holidays. If you do not need the refill right away, you can send a request through the Athena Health portal.  

Please continue to practice all CDC recommended Covid 19 safety protocols and call with any questions regarding exposure concerns, testing or symptoms. 
Take care and stay safe,
Dr. Schmidlein
