Send me your email address. The email address you send notes from does not accept messages. I sent an email to you and CCed the Virginia state medical board. I’m guessing you’d like the chance to respond. I’m not logging into your system to get in touch with you.
Thank you to the doctor and staff this morning for making the kids Covid testing less scary, fast, and efficient. Much appreciated!
I’ve called four times and NO ONE answered. The fifth time someone hung up on me!!! Please call me when you’d like to be paid.
Hello! My daughter was a patient before we moved abroad in 2014, I need to request some records but your website doesn't open and I don't have an email contact for you. Can you please message me a way to contact your office?
We were very impressed and pleased with the level of caution, professionalism, and comfort we received on our sick visit during the Pandemic. We also found the videos on your website very helpful and comforting. Additionally, we were able to take advantage of using telemedicine, and it was simple and straightforward. We're grateful to have great providers at PAA. Thank you to all of the staff, and the measures you are taking during these times.
Are your phone lines down? I've been trying to call all morning and it just rings and rings forever.
Have been trying to reach the after hours triage nurse and have yet to receive a call back, even after trying to reach the supervisor. Any suggestions?
Does anyone have the email to the office? I was given the wrong email. Thank you!
My son was seen in this office on Saturday 3/21/2020. When we first walked in we were asked to wait at the door due to the Covid-19 protocols they have in place. Which by the way were a joke and not communicated amongst all employees. I was seen by a nurse practitioner "Frank" was his name. His bedside manner was horrible. He came to the room and asked me to move to another room not announcing why. When we moved to the next room I sat my son on the table to be seen, "Frank" comes in the room and says I didn't want him on the table that's why we moved to another room. Well, "Frank" didn't clarify that at all when moving secondly the nurse didn't say anything when we first sat down in the room. "Frank" also didn't call in my son's prescription as he said he would. So for two days now my son hasn't had the prescription he needs for his allergies. Although they sell it over the counter he stated he would still submit the prescription so I can see if my insurance would cover it. He did not! I normally attend the Potomac Yard location because they have better customer service there and the doctors and nurse practitioners there are very nice and communicate very well. This here is one of the main reasons I left the Walker Lane location from when my son was a baby and never looked back since.
I’ve been trying to call your office since you opened. There is something wrong with the phone lines. It says on your website that you aren’t doing walkins right now, which is understandable, but then please answer your phones. My daughter is sick abs seems to have pink eye. We need to be seen. She is eight months old. Fix your phones!
Honstly i really like the remodeling . Best place for the great doctors . #no1
Which location is open today for walk-ins? I was third in line on hold and someone hung up on me. I just called back and now I'm 5th!

PAA: Passionate, Accessible, Adaptable

Our ultimate goal is to provide the very best individualized healthcare to each of our patients. Pediatric Associates of Alexandria, Inc. has served Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. area for over 50 years. With 17 providers and 45 staff members, we are able to provide total healthcare for children, from infancy through adolescence and early adulthood. We make it a priority to establish an open, cooperative relationship with parents, involving families in the decision-making for the well-being of their child, our patient. We strive to make each visit a positive experience.

Mission: Pediatric Associates of Alexandria is committed to being accessible to serve all of your child's health care needs. We believe that your child's medical home is the best place to receive healthcare, whenever possible. VACCINATIONS: We believe that vaccinations are an essential part of our work protecting children from serious illness, disability and death. We follow the immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Thankfully, the vaccinations are very safe, and are associated with only minor side effects, such as fever and tenderness at the injection site. More serious side effects, such as allergy, are exceedingly rare. This risk exists when any medication is given, including over the counter medications. We ask that parents at Pediatric Associates follow the recommended schedule. This is for the sake of their own children, the greater community, and for the babies in our practice who are susceptible to infections because they remain too young to be vaccinated. If you do not wish to follow this schedule, we will continue to see your child, but recommend that you find another provider who supports this choice.

With lockdowns lifting, should I send my child back to daycare? | Children's National When thinking about the decision, it is important to take into account what needs your individual family has, how much risk your family is willing to take on and what infection control measures your daycare is taking.

Pictures from our kids help give us hope. This sure has been a tough week for our country. This morning I just feel sorrow. I want to thank our staff at PAA for continuing to be here to get the job done to care for our patients, in this time of pain, uncertainty, anger, and stress, on top of a pandemic. While I know that we fall short sometimes, please know that we at PAA are doing our best to treat everyone with love, dignity, fairness and respect. We are blessed with great diversity of people here. I hope that we can all have our hearts and minds be open, and continue to learn from each other. Dr. Hopper

Getting out in nature, like here at Windy Run, is a great way for parents and kids to feel peace in these anxious times. Weekday mornings are an especially good time to get out and avoid the crowds.
