Novant Health has opened its first express care clinic in Northern Virginia at the North Rock Shopping Center in Warrenton. Express care clinics offer convenient walk-in care, with extended weekday and weekend hours, and treat common illnesses and minor injuries.
The new facility will provide Novant Health nurse practitioners and physician assistants to diagnose and treat acute medical conditions, prescribe needed medications, conduct sports physicals and administer flu shots and tetanus vaccinations. The clinics can perform tests such as cholesterol screening, rapid strep tests or blood glucose screenings.
"We are pleased to open this new medical service to the Warrenton community," said Heather Aram, Vice President of Physician and Ambulatory Services, NVA Market. "We realize there are many patients who may be from out of town, or perhaps don't have a primary care physician, or possibly need quick, convenient medical care. Express care is a great alternative to a high-cost emergency room visit or to patients delaying treatment because they have to wait for an appointment with their regular provider."
Novant Health Express Care is located at:
North Rock Shopping Center
480 Fletcher Drive
Warrenton, VA 20186
Walk in appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You do not have to be a patient of a Novant Health physician to be seen in the office. Most insurances and Medicare and Medicaid are accepted.
