Our primary care clinicians are ready to take care of you. We will address your medical needs and work with you to foster your health and maintain wellness – from preventive care to managing chronic conditions.
As a patient of the GW MFA, our care providers will get to know you, your family history, your medical history – gaining a full understanding of your personal health needs. With a team-based, patient-centered approach, our goal is to serve as a valued and trusted partner and a go-to health resource.
With more than 50 different specialists located in the DMV, we will coordinate care if a specialist is needed and will provide a high level of education and support for each of our patients.
If there is a pre-authorization required for a medicine that has been prescribed by your provider, your request will be processed within 1-2 business days and a member of our staff will call you when it is completed.
- COVID-19 Recovery Clinic
Our physicians at The GW Medical Faculty Associates have been caring for patients with COVID-19 since the early days of the pandemic in our region, and our researchers have been at the forefront of efforts to understand its pathogenesis, immunology, and treatment. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, some patients who survive the disease experience long-lasting symptoms and negative effects on their health. These can include long-lasting effects on the heart, lung, immune system, mental health, and overall quality of life. Such persistent “long-haul” complications have been reported by our patients and described in the medical literature.
We are offering a new COVID-19 Recovery Clinic to support patients who struggle with long-term symptoms after COVID-19.
Welcome to Cuentos, the humanities magazine produced by The GW Medical Faculty Associate’s Division of General Internal Medicine.
Each year we think we’ve harnessed all of the artistic talent of our colleagues…only to discover the following year that the richness runs even deeper. Each of us joined the editorial team for a variety reasons. We each have different interests in painting, photography, and writing. What unites us is our love for grammar and the red pen as well as our desire to showcase the humanism in medicine. We earnestly believe that healthcare providers who do art relate better to their patients and colleagues and are better clinicians for it. Cuentos is a forum for artistic expression in the Division of General Internal Medicine, and we are so grateful for it.
As editors, we have the privilege of working directly with the healthcare providers responsible for the work you are about to see. These are the people behind the white coats, scrubs, and badges. They have carved sculptures from wood, devised healthy recipes, and drawn fairies, among other endeavors. We can say without reservation that each contributor has shared a part of him or herself with each piece of art created.
Whether you are sitting in the waiting room or beyond, we invite you to take a moment out of your fast-paced life to find a connection within these pages. And be sure to check out our 2016 movie highlighting the impact of Cuentos for contributors and readers alike.
We thank you for your continued support.
