For Non-Emergency Doctor’s Visits:
- The student should arrange a doctor’s appointment through their personal local physician or contact a local physician’s office. There are also several walk-in clinics in the Front Royal, Stephens City and Winchester, VA area. Stephens City is approximately 20 miles and Winchester is located approximately 30 miles from the College. When making an appointment, you should not expect that any of the clinics or offices can give you an appointment for the same day.
- The student should arrange a ride through friends or use a taxi.
- Bring your insurance card and know the names and dosage amounts of any prescription medications when you go the doctor’s office.
- Be prepared to pay your co-pay at the office or to pay the charge in full if you are going to a walk-in clinic.
For Emergency Room Visits:
- If life threatening, 911 should be called first! If non-life threatening, the student should arrange a ride through friends or use a taxi service. Remember to travel with a couple of friends/volunteers.
- Notify an RA of the situation if possible.
- Warren County Memorial Hospital is the closest hospital located at 1000 N. Shenandoah Ave.
