Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
if he continues to have diarrhea, he needs to see a doctor and get a stool test to check for salmonella infection or clostridium difficile infection
or it could be just bad food poisoning.
he needs to find a good primary care doctor in washington DC who is in network for him
my classmate works in primary care in Herdon, VA outside of DC
is he in DC proper or suburbs?
does he have a primary care doctor?
