About Us

Alliance Xpress Urgent Care provides quality medical care quickly during hours convenient to patients.

Covington, VA Physicians Scott Brown DO, Bill Boyd MD, Clare Weidman MD and others initially envisioned this business in 2012. Physicians were leaving the community and it was challenging to recruit Physicians to the community to replace those that left. At the same time, the community increasingly desires more convenient hours and locations to receive care especially when they are sick. An Urgent Care fulfills these needs in the community.

The businesses owners include pillars of the community such as Aubrey Hall MD, Raymond Claterbaugh MD, Scott Brown, DO, Bill Boyd, MD and Paul Strasbaugh MD. Open since 4/1/2016, we are located at 919 South Craig Avenue, Suite A near Food Lion in Covington, VA.
