A2Z Family Care And Urgent Care, Introduces a new concept when it comes to "Primary Care and Family Doctor". We are calling our Service "Extended Primary Care" and in that sense, we are only "Extended Primary Care Service" in Northern Virginia: The concept of "Extended Primary Care Service" or"EPCS" is originated and modeled from United Kingdom and European concept to reduce the health care cost while increase the efficiency of care delivery by establishing more alternatives to hospitals and emergency rooms. The EPCS (Extended Primary Care Service) in United Kingdom actually according to and article published in US National Library of Medicine of National Institute Of Health (NCBI-NIH. according to the publications " Better organisation and delivery of primary care has the potential to manage demand and reduce costs for hospital services, but routine primary care services are not open during evenings and weekends". and the same publication found that The extending access was associated with a reduction in emergency department visits".

We brought same concept to US by introducing "Extended Primary Care Services" in Reston/Herndon area.
By Extended Primary Care Services (EPCS) we mean "extended access", "Extended Service" And "Extended Hours"!
With our services we keep families and kids out of the emergency department, while we can be a complementary care to your primary care service, we can also be a "replacement" to your traditional primary care as well. But only few patients may know , where to go when they are sick during these hours (after-hour weekends and holidays), example where to go when their children's doctor office is close, or if have a twisted ankle at 5:00pm, and need an Xray? This why Extended Primary Care Service is here for the Families. we are open everyday (9am-830pm) and have extended services something that regular primary care and pediatrician clinics doesn't have, like Xray machine, EKG, Pulmonary Function test and Procedure room. The other main component of "extended access" is the affordability of care. We don't charge you an Emergency Room copayment neither we charge you the Urgent Care co-payment, WE CHARGE YOU PRIMARY CARE CO-PAYMENT! We Are One Of The Best Primary Care Centers In Northern Virginia, with majority of our services done In-House, If It is Xray, Lab Or EKG Or Pulmonary Function Test! We Are a Walk-In Service Everyday From 9am-8:30pm, We see patients of all ages, treat any condition, if it is Flu or Strep Throat or Diabetes or Hypertension or Chronic Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Most services provided here at A2Z Family Care and Urgent Care are those provided by a regular primary care physician, while those services here will be handled immediately ( with or without appointment) by appointment or in walk-in bases. Plus, as we mentioned we can provide nearly all of the non-life-threatening treatments of an emergency room, including labs, procedures, X-rays, sutures, etc. We offer comprehensive health care for people of all ages and genders, extended hours, and continuous care whether you're an individual or have a large family in the community.
