My name is Gwen Davis and I have been a health care professional for more than 30 years. I started my career as a registered nurse and now work as a family nurse practitioner in community health care. My experience includes treating acute and chronic diseases (including anxiety, depression, and attention deficit disorder), family planning services and adult and pediatric comprehensive physicals.Because I am passionate about helping those with mental health and substance use disorders, I am also studying to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner at George Mason University.
Access to health care to persons of all walks of life is very important to me. Recently, medical care has become easier to access for Virginia residents exceptwhen it comes to Opiate Use Disorders. To personally address this shortcoming, I completed Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) training so that I could provide care for those struggling with opioids in my community. The MAT program is office-based prescribingof medications such as buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) for opioid use disorder under the Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000. This medication is used in conjunction with advanced behavioral therapy.
If you are ready to get treatment, I am here to help you by reducing cravings with medication that offers minimal withdrawal symptoms. You can expect a physical to review any medical problems and a psychiatric evaluation prior to beginning treatment.Together, with therapy, we can treat your disease.
My husband and I live in Ashburn, Va. We have four adult children and two grandchildren. I love the outdoors and spend my free time paddling on the Potomac river, cycling the W&OD trail, and spending time with friends and family.
