From an email:

“Wanted to share the news that One Medical (tech-enabled primary care health startup) has just opened a new location in Adam’s Morgan – it’s our sixth location in the DC Metro area since first opening our doors at Farragut Square and Metro Center in October 2011.”

    Love One Medical. Love. Love. Love.

  • Yes

    LOVE One Medical. They are the first dr office I’ve had good experiences with since moving to D.C. 13 years ago. Check with your insurer to see if you’d have to pay the yearly fee. I cannot tell you how easy One Medical has made my life.

  • Evan Tupac Grooter

    My only complaint is that my primary care doc moved to this location, so I had to pick someone new.

  • Petworth

    Jumping on the praise bandwagon. It’s so worth the annual fee. I can always get same-day appointments, and the staff is always knowledgeable. Such a difference from my last doctor, who i would wait in the waiting room for 3 hours just to be “treated” for ~2 minutes usually.

  • AdMoGuy

    Another endorsement for One Medical here. Some people want a close relationship with a primary doctor who they can see for all their health issues. I don’t care about that. I want to be able to see a competent medical professional (1) at a moment’s notice, and (2) at a time and place that is convenient for my schedule. One Medical fits the bill perfectly, and now even better that they’re in my neighborhood.

    BTW, if you’re a Fed, the yearly fee is waived.

    • condoer

      Wait, how do you get the yearly fee waived as a fed!?! Thanks in advance!

      • rachel

        if you have CareFirst they waive the annual fee. Just call them to set up your membership and tell them you have CareFirst. There’s no guarantee that the fee waiver will be forever, but I don’t think they anticipate getting rid of it any time soon. For reference – I joined One Medical a little over a year ago, had my fee waived, and then last week received notice that it was time to renew my membership. I responded to the email saying I still had CareFirst and they renewed my membership for another year. So easy and convenient!!

      • AdMoGuy

        There should be an option for a waiver fee request when you set up an account on the One Medical website. Then you show up at your appointment and show your insurance card. I have FEP BCBS.

    Another big fan of One Medical. I’ve never had to wait more than three minutes for an appointment. I’m generally in and out the door in less than 20 minutes. It’s so easy to get an appointment. And the doc/nurses/PAs/staff are wonderful.

  • Smittty

    I love one medical! The fee is definitely worth it! I can always get a same day appointment if I need one. They have been great!

  • AdMo

    anybody know if the fee is waived for World Bank staff?

    • Anon Spock

      It’s waived if you have carefirst insurance not based on the employer. However, I’d hope a world bank employee could afford the $200/yr annual fee if it isn’t.

      • maxwell smart

        It’s not so much being able to afford it, as much as if there is value in it. If I had a chronic medical issue that required being able to see the doctor quickly and multiple times a year – then yes… there is value. If you go to the doctor maybe once or twice a year… maybe not so much value.

  • quincy dude

    DC is so lame. NYC has a TWO Medical.

  • DF

    Another fan! What other practice has countless openings on Sat/Sun? My PCP has left One Medical so need to pick a new one and happy to use this location. Plus, post visit I can hit up Philz. :)

  • maxwell smart

    I’ve always heard great things about One Medical, but as someone who goes to the doctor _maybe_ once a year, I can’t really justify spending an additional $200… and I really need to find a new doctor too since mine moved to Columbia Heights.

    • Petworth

      I generally am too. I usually go to the doctor about twice a year. But as someone who has had to go to the doctor or specialist 14 times since Christmas because of an sudden and unexpected health issue, it’s worth it to have the ability to always get an appointment at a time and location that’s convenient to me.

    • AK

      I’ve heard they’ll waive the fee without much questioning.

    • Anonymous

      I’m in the same boat. Plus this isn’t a convenient location for someone who drives. (Actually, none of their DC locations are.)

    • aeb

      I was a recent grad working at a non-profit (so a low salary + student loans) and they accepted that as a reason to waive the fee.

      Cannot say enough great things about them though. I’ve had vaccines that had multiple rounds of shots, and you can just drop in and have a tech take care of that. Staff is all super friendly. Love the messaging feature where you can email with your doctor for follow up after your appointment. The Facetime feature is also really cool – I’ve used it for skin ailments and to ask questions.
