GoWell Primary Care Services

GoWell Urgent Care is expanding our Warrenton, Virginia medical practice to include primary care as well as urgent care medical services effective June 1, 2020.

What is Primary Care? Your Home Base for Medical Care

As a primary care provider, GoWell can now offer patients living in and around Warrenton and Fauquier County, Virginia a “home base” for medical care and preventative health care. Our current urgent care patients and new patients will have the opportunity to develop a trusting, long-term relationship with a GoWell doctor, physician assistant, and/or nurse practitioner as part of their medical care team.

GoWell’s primary care patients can get regular health and wellness checkups as well as diagnosis and treatment of non-emergency health conditions. We can also maintain primary care patient medical records along with the overall health history of our patients and provide referrals to medical specialists as needed for health conditions requiring specialized diagnoses and treatments.

People who develop an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider are able to lead healthier lives overall. The health advantages of having a primary care provider for regular health check-ups are well documented.

Urgent Care: Same-day, Walk-In and Immediate Medical Care Services

The GoWell Urgent Care clinic offers same-day, walk-in and immediate care without an appointment for people experiencing an illness or injury that is not potentially life threatening but are in need of prompt medical treatment. In most cases, GoWell urgent care walk-in patients are seen within an hour or less of arriving at our clinic. Our experienced and caring MD, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are available 7 days a week to provide diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of non-emergency conditions, including allergic reactions, cuts and abrasions, colds, flu, bronchitis, sore throat, STDs, UTIs, sprains and fractures.

Telemedicine Services and Coronavirus Precautions

GoWell Urgent Care now offers telemedicine services for a wide range of medical needs for patients who prefer to consult a doctor from the safety and comfort of their own home. To schedule a virtual visit with our in-house physician, physician assistant or one of our nurse practitioners, simply go to GoWellUrgentCare.com and click the “Schedule a Virtual Visit” button on our website home page.

Many insurers are now waiving co-pay requirements for telemedicine visits. Give us a call at (540) 351-0062 for more information about how you can schedule a virtual doctor visit using your mobile phone or computer.

We are also taking special precautions to protect the health and safety of our patients who visit our clinic in person. All patients who sign up online or over the phone are prescreened for COVID-19 symptoms. We are not equipped to test or treat patients who are showing signs of the coronavirus.

For patients who come to our clinic in person, there are screening requirements on our front door, a distance barrier at the front desk and reduced seating to maintain proper distancing between patients at all times.

Patients who have respiratory issues or request a mask are given one when they check in and everyone is required to use hand sanitizers. All surfaces of the lobby and the door handles are cleaned multiple times throughout the day. Exam rooms are cleaned after every patient as well.

Our staff are fully equipped with personal protection equipment and we track federal and local health and safety requirements on a daily basis.

You can be assured that you will be treated safely and compassionately at GoWell Urgent Care whether you choose to visit us in person at our clinic or through a virtual visit via your phone or computer.

Our immediate care clinic is open to serve you Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 8 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 8 AM – 5 PM.

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Prevention & Treatment

Prevention

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website

For information specific to healthcare, see CDC’s Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. CDC does have specific guidance for travelers.

Treatment

There is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for COVID-19. People with COVID-19 should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. For severe cases, treatment should include care to support vital organ functions.

People who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

See Interim Guidance for Healthcare Professionals for information on persons under investigation.
