Barnard Medical Center

Complete Care for a Healthier You

The Barnard Medical Center combines medical care with the latest advances in prevention and nutrition to help create a health care plan designed just for you—with all the resources you need.

Whether you want a wellness check-up, have a minor medical problem, or need to address something more serious, we are here to help. If you need to treat and reverse diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or other chronic conditions, we will help you revolutionize your health.

Our team of board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered dietitians provide state-of-the-art medical care. And if you need help improving your eating habits and lifestyle, we will give you the tools you need. Each of our providers is board certified in lifestyle medicine.

The Barnard Medical Center was established by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a nonprofit organization founded in 1985 that promotes preventive medicine, especially good nutrition, conducts clinical research studies, and promotes higher standards in research.

Barnard Medical Center Telehealth

The Barnard Medical Center is now open for in-office appointments. We will continue to emphasize telehealth online appointments for visits. In-office appointments will be available on a limited basis. There will be only one clinician in the office each day, so please note that appointment availability may be limited. Labs are available to be drawn in the office upon appointment. All new patient appointments will continue to be scheduled exclusively through telemedicine, followed by annual exams at the medical center. 

To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, in accordance with guidelines from the D.C. government and the CDC, the following measures will be implemented. 

For telehealth visits, please be aware that a medical assistant will call you one hour prior to your appointment for intake questions. This is very important to complete before your appointment and will be done for each telehealth visit. Providers need this information to evaluate you at your visit. Otherwise your appointment may be rescheduled.

When your appointment is scheduled for an in-office visit, a text message will be sent to you one business day prior to your appointment that will read as follows:

Please call 202-686-2818 if answered “YES” to any of these questions found on our website   

“Please review these questions regarding COVID-19 prior to your appointment at the Barnard Medical Center.

Are you experiencing fevers, cough, sore throat, trouble breathing, headaches, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or loss of smell or taste?

Have you or anyone in your household tested positive for COVID-19 or are currently in quarantine?

Have you or anyone in your household been in direct contact with a person who is currently in quarantine or tested positive for COVID-19?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, please give us a call at 202-686-2818. If any symptom suggests a coronavirus infection, your appointment will be rescheduled as a telehealth visit or you will be referred for further evaluation.”

You are required to wear a mask throughout the entire time you are in the office. We ask that you bring a mask from home. A fabric mask is acceptable.

When you arrive, our doors will be locked, and our waiting area is closed for your safety.

Please do not pull on the glass door instead ring the doorbell and a member of our staff will be with you shortly.

A medical assistant will take your temperature before arriving into the clinic. If your temperature is above 99.9֯ F you will be asked to wait in your car and a member of our team will call you with further instructions.

Appointment times will be staggered to limit the number of patients in the office. After the temperature screening, you will be taken directly to the exam room to avoid having patients in the waiting room. It is very important that you arrive on time for your appointment, so other patients do not have to wait in their cars or in the hallway. Otherwise your appointment may be rescheduled.

Please note that these measures may change as guidelines from the D.C. government and CDC are updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. If you would like to make an appointment or have any questions or concerns, please call us at 202-527-7500.
