Georgetown Student Health Center Services

For all visits, please bring:
  • Your W&M student ID
  • Your insurance cards/ information

If you experience any confusion being a non-Georgetown student, you should ask for the office administrator, Elaine Whetzel. 

There is a fee for all services provided at the clinic. The health insurance is billed first, but the student and/or parents are responsible for any charges not covered by insurance.  Most insurance companies require a small co-payment be paid at each visit.  Students can make this payment by cash, check, or credit card.  (Every effort will be made to assist where financial hardship exists.) The health center is staffed by Family Practice faculty physicians and nurse practitioners with particular training and experience in providing high quality health care.
