Our Vision The Free Clinic will help create a community where all individuals, regardless of income, have the resources they need to be healthy
The Free Clinic is just like a regular Doctor's office. It is the place to go when you have an earache, a toothache, diabetes, hypertension or the flu. It is the place to go when you need a mammogram, lab work, a flu shot diagnostic testing, medication, referral to a specialist, or a follow-up from a hospital visit or a trip to the ER. If we cannot help you, we will do our best to find someone who can. If you have any questions please call 540-347-0394 and press 1 to reach the Front Desk. Visits to the Fauquier & Rappahannock clinics are free of charge.
The Free Clinic provides comprehensive mental health support to our patients, including counseling, tele-psychiatry and medication management. Emergency services are offered in partnership with the Rappahannock/Rapidan Community Services Board. Patients are referred for Mental Health services by one of our Free Clinic clinicians. If you have any questions please call 540-347-0394 and press 5 to reach the MH Coordinator.
If you have medical insurance but you do not have dental insurance, you can be seen at our Dental Clinic as long as you are a resident of either Fauquier or Rappahannock counties and meet our financial criteria. Dental Clinic provides emergency and preventive care including comprehensive exams, fillings, extractions, X-rays and cleanings. Oral surgery and assistance in obtaining dentures is offered on a limited basis. If you have any questions please call 540-347-0394 and press 2 to reach the Dental Clinic.
In many cases, the Clinic can provide you with your medications at no charge. If we cannot get you the specific medication you have been prescribed, we will try to find a suitable alternative.
Prescriptions written at the Free Clinic can only be filled at the Warrenton Wal-Mart, Remington Drug, or on-site at our Medication Center through MAP, our Medication Assistance Program. If the Warrenton Wal-Mart or Remington Drug is not convenient for you, you are welcome to take your prescription to another pharmacy but the Free Clinic will be unable to pay for the medication.
If you are a clinic patient and have been given a prescription by the hospital or a specialist, ask them to give you the written prescription and bring it to the clinic during office hours so one of our clinicians can review it and if indicated, rewrite it on your behalf.
Clinic doctors do not prescribe narcotics or habit-forming medications, and there are none stored in the building.
Prescriptions & Medication Refills
We need your help and cooperation to ensure you have a safe and reliable supply of medications.
If you are on our Medication Assistance Program (MAP), and pick up your medication at the clinic, PLEASE CALL TWO WEEKS BEFORE YOU RUN OUT OF MEDICINE so it can be ordered and available when you need it. Patients in need of insulin or diabetic supplies must also call 2 weeks in advance.
If you need a prescription written, or a refill called in to Wal-Mart or Remington Drug, please call the clinic on Tuesday or Wednesday so a clinician will have sufficient time to assess your need and authorize your refill. Our clinicians are available to write refills on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings for eligible patients but please remember that the clinic is closed on Friday and Monday so plan accordingly. Prescriptions and refills will only be written for patients whose eligibility is up to date.
Approval for prescriptions and refills is not automatic. It is possible the doctor may want to see you or you may need to update your eligibility. If you are running out of your medication, call the clinic. A receptionist can give you information on your eligibility status and will confer with a nurse to see whether or not you need an appointment before your medication can be refilled.
When you come to pick up your medication or prescription, pleasecheck in at the reception desk and have a seat. We will help you as soon as possible. We see patients during office hours and you may have to wait until the Pharmacy Tech is available to assist you. Your patience is appreciated.
A $2 donation per prescription is suggested.
Most of the laboratory tests and X-rays that we order for you are donated by our friends at Fauquier Hospital but it is always better to ask before the test to see if there will be any additional cost to you. Contact the Fauquier Hospital Financial Counselor's office at 540-316-2970 to avoid unnecessary charges. Your eligibility must be up to date to receive these services. A nurse will call you after your test results have been reviewed by the doctor. If we cannot reach you by phone we will mail your results to the address on file. Final results can take several days so please be patient.
If you call to request a referral, the clinician will review your request and determine your need for specialty services. Please allow 48 hours for a referral. No referrals can be written if your eligibility has expired. A nurse will call you and let you know if your referral is ready to be picked up at the Front Desk.
If you are given a referral to a Specialist’s office and have scheduled an appointment and cannot keep the appointment, please contact the specialist's office DIRECTLY to let them know. They volunteer their time and services to care for you. Your eligibility must be up to date to receive these services. Please respect the time and effort our specialists spend on providing free care to you and our other patients.
