Do you know where to go for after-hours care in Woodstock, VA?
Picture this, it is 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work. As you are
preparing to sit down for dinner you notice a rash on your little girls
arm, she is complaining of an itchy throat and her forehead is warm to
the touch. As you scoop her up to put her in the car, you pause for a
moment and realize that her pediatrician’s office is closed. Where
will you take her? Should you go to the emergency department? Or should
you swing into the afterhours, Walk-In Clinic at Valley Health Shenandoah
Memorial Hospital Multispecialty Clinic?
When situations like this occur, it can be confusing to determine where
to go for care. While an ED is best equipped to manage critical needs,
a walk-in clinic is a great option if your situation warrants medical
treatment but is not a life threatening emergency. The Walk-In Clinic
at SMH Multispecialty Clinic will treat symptoms from colds, earaches,
simple bone fractures, sprains, rashes, and small lacerations as well
as non-severe asthma attacks or non-severe COPD exacerbation.
Are you pressed for time to make it to your doctor’s office during
the day? Not to worry, the walk-in clinic offers T-dap (tetanus, diphtheria,
and pertussis/whooping cough) updates as well as flu vaccines.
The Walk-In Clinic is available Monday - Thursday, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For
more information please visit the practice online, at
540-459-1383 during regular office hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
