A weight loss clinic closed without warning in Rockville on Friday morning, leaving some patients with scheduled appointments wondering why they were never contacted.
The closure may just be temporary, but patients at the My Weight Doctor on Rockville Pike had to be turned away as movers carried away equipment with Montgomery County Sheriff's Deputies standing by.
The patients were asked to leave by authorities and were told that the office was closed, they told News4's Derrick Ward.
Movers carried out two large flat-screen TVs, stands and several boxes. It appeared to be some sort of repossession effort, but NBC4 couldn't immediately confirm that.
Patients should call ahead to learn if they can have their appointments rescheduled.
A woman working at an answering service told NBC4 that the office had reopened by mid-day. However, NBC4 was unable to contact anyone at the clinic by the direct phone number to confirm.
