Brambleton Buzz: Latest News and Events in Loudoun County

Telemedicine and Dentistry Available from Brambleton Town Center – Just What the Doctor Ordered!

April 16, 2020 | by Patty Lamothe

Everyone in Brambleton is doing a great job helping our community stay safe to mitigate COVID-19 by diligently staying home, and when a trip out is necessary, wearing protective masks, gloves if possible, and washing their hands often (tip:  sing the “Happy Birthday” song while washing to achieve the CDC’s recommended 20 seconds of wash time).

Just as importantly, medical and dental practices in Brambleton Town Center have instituted telemedicine – virtual appointments and other ways to keep patients healthy, even from home. They’re also strictly following health authority requirements from all levels of government, as well as their own medically-trained best practices, to keep their patients and staff as safe as possible. Town Center businesses have always worked hard for our community, and now more than ever for the common good. Serious times call for serious measures, and Brambleton is in good (gloved) hands.

Telemedicine at Brambleton Town Center

Bloo Dental now offers online appointments through phone and video chats to diagnose patients remotely, and they have temporarily suspended elective dentistry procedures to concentrate on emergency cases.

“My main focus is to help patients experiencing a dental emergency, in order to reduce the number of patients seen at the emergency rooms,” explained Dr. Haress Rahim. “This has been successful to remotely diagnose and help patients with any questions or concerns they might be having.”

For more information, please call 703.327.5533 or visit bloo-dental.com.

Broadlands Family Practice has transitioned almost exclusively to video visits to continue serving patients online and by phone in the safety and comfort of home.

“We understand what a tough time this can be for families,” said Dr. Jeffrey Cohn. “We can’t wait to see our patients again. But until then, know that we are here for you at the click of a mouse.”

For more information, please call the practice’s Brambleton office at 703.722.2312 or go to broadlandsfamilypractice.com.

Commonhealth Chiropractic has pledged to stay open to help patients with musculoskeletal concerns that can’t be addressed any other way but in person. The office has changed its patient flow so as to eliminate in-office waiting (patients now wait in their cars and are escorted in when the doctor is available). All staff wear protective masks, and sterilization procedures are stringently applied.

For more information, please call 703.327.1544 or visit online at commonhealthchiropractic.com.

Animal Medical Centers of Loudoun staff wearing masks

Let’s not forget our furry friends! Animal Medical Centers of Loudoun is open because pets need medical care too.

Payments are being handled over the phone or online.

It’s never been more important to keep health and safety at top priority, and Brambleton salutes these Town Center medical practices who’ve adapted so quickly to protect everyone during these temporarily unusual days. It just proves how much Brambleton is a true family of residents and businesses who are here for each other, even when we have to be apart.
