Armando Guerrero travels to work at Dr. Jon's Urgent Care from Damascus, Virginia, where he lives with his wife Grace and their 8 children. They attend First Baptist Church of Damascus.
Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant, he earned his certification as a Medical Assistant. As a student, he interned at Loma Linda University Medical Center, a large urban teaching hospital in Southern California. This turned into his first medical job and he worked for the Department of Orthopaedics for over 10 years. After an apprenticeship, he became a Certified Orthopaedic Technician, served as an instructor on the teaching staff, and ran the Clubfoot Casting Clinic.
Armando has always had a desire to work with underserved populations and he was drawn to West Virginia because of their "Rural Health Practitioner Program" which focuses on those communities in true need for medical help. He received his Physician Assistant certification from the University of Charleston in West Virginia in 2014. He gained more experience by working at Mountains Community Hospital in their Rural Health Clinic, before moving to Damascus, Virginia to work in Emergency Medicine at several locations.
Armando feels like he has found his home here at Dr. Jon's Urgent Care Center and we could not agree more.
