Patient First announces the expansion of its urgent and primary care services in Virginia with the opening of a new medical center in Annandale, Virginia on Thursday, October 12, 2023. The new center, located at 7042A Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003, will provide area residents with walk-in, non-appointment access to urgent and primary medical care services from 8 am to 8 pm, 365 days a year, including all holidays.

The Annandale center will be the 22nd  Patient First in the Washington, DC, area.

“The goal of Patient First is to provide convenient, cost-effective medical care on a walk-in basis,” says R.P. Sowers, M.D., founder and CEO of Patient First.  “At the same time, our physicians and staff always work closely and in a collaborative fashion with the area’s existing medical community to provide care.”

Like all Patient First medical centers, the Annandale facility will feature a wide range of on-site services, all available each day during the center’s operating hours, including:

Urgent Care
Patient First provides treatment for routine injuries and illnesses – offering a convenient, lower-cost alternative to visiting a hospital emergency department.  Services offered include care for colds, flu, allergic reactions, ear and sinus infections, pneumonia, minor burns, skin rashes, sprains, minor fractures, lacerations and sports injuries.

Primary Care
Patient First physicians provide preventative and primary medical services for patients who do not have a regular physician. While appointments are not necessary, a patient selecting a Patient First physician for primary care can refer to the Patient First website at to see when their preferred physician is scheduled. Patients may also call the center for a three-day physician schedule.

Patient First provides telehealth service making it even more convenient to visit a Patient First physician. A patient may visit with a Patient First health care provider directly through their smartphone, tablet, or computer. Patients may register through the Patient First website at  or dial (866) 990-2533. Telehealth visits are available from Monday through Friday.

Digital X-Ray Services
Like all Patient First centers, the new Patient First – Annandale location will be equipped with on-site digital x-ray equipment for routine x-rays.

Lab Work
The new Patient First facility’s CLIA-approved laboratory will provide on-site services for routine office labs and send-out service for more complex tests.

As a convenience, Patient First dispenses routine prescription drugs on-site.

Occupational Health
Since 1981, Patient First has provided Occupational Health services for employees and employers. These services include treatment for workplace injuries covered by Workers’
Compensation, as well as DOT physicals, and drug screenings.

For continuity of care, Patient First routinely transmits a copy of the visit record to the patient’s primary care physician, according to the patient’s wishes.

Patient First accepts major insurance plans including Aetna, Anthem, CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna Healthcare, Optima, UnitedHealthcare, Medicare, and TRICARE. A complete listing of participating insurers can be found at Patient First offers simplified pricing for patients without insurance.
