UPDATED: COVID-19 Vaccine Information and Resources. Learn more.
Burke Family Practice does not have vaccines to administer, but here is the latest update from the Virginia Department of Health:
“Vaccine supply continues to be limited and many providers and patients still have questions on when vaccination will be available for those who are eligible. Anyone eligible for Phase 1a or 1b based on *occupation* should check with their employer to see if arrangements have already been made for vaccinating their employees. If not, they should register with the local health department in the locality where they work. Anyone eligible based on *age or medical condition* should register with the local health department in the locality where they live. Virginia has confirmed that the District of Columbia and Maryland are following the same approach. Because expected supply is limited, it may be weeks or longer before vaccination appointments become available for those who have pre-registered.”
Thank you for your continued patience as we have been slowly trying to re-open the office safely and effectively during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Here is the latest update on where we are, and what we have been doing to get us through the transition – please understand we have always had your best interests in mind, and that we are trying to keep everyone safe during an unprecedented pandemic that has been deemed as not under control as of this posting, which was not expected.
Please call before you come to our office! At no time will any person be allowed entry into our office who is not already scheduled for a visit, and anyone will be denied entry if they are not wearing a mask/face covering. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

We are sorry to announce that Dr. Cheryl Ostrowski has left our practice as of May 1, 2020. This was planned in advance, but due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we had no way to alert patients during the time our office remains closed. We wish her the best in her endeavors! Please call our office to schedule a virtual visit appointment with one of our other providers today!
Dr. Anderson was recognized by his peers as one of Washingtonian Top Doctors in 2015!
