FAQ

MedGen Urgent Care provides care for medium to low intensity healthcare issues like illnesses, vaccinations, injuries that require splinting or suturing, and occupational medicine. 
If you are experiencing chest pain or other life threatening issues, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
At MedGen Care, we want you to be able to focus on getting the care you need. We accept many types of health insurance. See our insurance page for a full listing. For co-pays and fee for service visits, we accept credit cards and cash. We are not able to accept checks at this time. 
At MedGen there is no need for an appointment, however, you may choose to reserve a time slot. The Online Check-In will cut down on any potential wait time and make your visit with us shorter.
We are open 8am until 8pm Monday – Saturday and 12pm-8pm on Sundays. MedGen will always be a convent option since we are open 365 days a year.
Here at MedGen we understand that your primary care physician knows the most about your health. We strive to keep your doctor informed for your convenience. Our front desk staff is trained to request your doctor’s contact information and so that a detailed report about your visit can be faxed to your doctor.
The average wait time to make an appointment with a primary care physician in the DC Metro are is 30 days or more (2009 Merritt Hawkins study). Patients with everyday medical issues have few options: wait for an appointment with their doctor or make an unnecessary and costly visit to the ER. However the ER is not always fast. ER wait times (especially for non life-threatening ailments) are also growing longer. The average MedGen visit lasts less than one hour, and is a fraction of the cost of visiting your local ER.
