I am in Washington DC, not feeling well and would like to see a doctor. The problem: I don't have a doctor. How do I go about getting one?

I'm in my early 20s. For the past several years, I haven't had a primary care physician and have gone in to my pediatric office when I had an issue. I would call them and they would give me an appointment - same-day only - with whichever doctor in their practice was available. This system works perfect for me but I'm an adult and I should really see an adult doctor.
Is there anything like this for adults around here? If not, what's the next best thing? I can take Metro anywhere but don't have a car. Is this something my insurance (Carefirst BCBS) can help with? Any other advice on how to see a doctor like a grownup?
