    It is required that ALL patients coming to our office be vaccinated against Covid-19 and when available be given a booster injection. You will be asked to provide proof of vaccination by presenting your vaccination card or a facsimile such as a photograph of the original card. We will check with the State of Virginia Department of Health to verify the status.

    There are no medical conditions that absolutely contraindicate getting the Covid-19 vaccine. If there are any questions regarding this then our office will work both with you and your primary care physician to reach a solution.

    It is your choice alone whether you wish to be vaccinated. It is the safety of our staff and other patients in our office that determine this policy.

    If you do not wish to be vaccinated, you will receive a registered letter stating that we will continue to treat you for thirty days (30) from the date of the letter. After that we will no longer provide care for you. While we will assist in you finding another physician to take over your care by providing medical records in a timely manner, it is up to you to establish care with a new physician after these thirty days.

    Please understand that we wish to continue to treat you and have you remain a patient in our practice. We urge you to get vaccinated so that this will continue without a lapse in treatment.

    If you have not done so already, please get vaccinated.

    You can call (434) 964-0159 to schedule. Please be patient with us, we will return your call.


    1) Only patients will be allowed into the office unless prior arrangements have been made. Drivers, companions, or family members will remain outside the office.

    2) You must wear a SURGICAL mask or an N-95 to the office visit.

    Respirator masks with one way valves are NOT allowed unless a regular surgical mask is placed over the top. Bandanas, spandex athletic facial coverings, and 1 or 2 ply cotton masks are NOT sufficient. Loose or ill fitting masks with space between your face and the edge of the mask are NOT sufficient. Keep your nose covered at all times. No exceptions !

    3) You need to arrive on time. Because of very tight patient scheduling with multiple practitioners if you are later then 5 minutes you will need to reschedule. For your safety we are decontaminating the facility between each patient, please be mindful of this.

    4) Patient and practitioner safety is of prime importance. You will be screened with a health questionnaire and have your temperature taken. If you have a fever or are at risk of COVID-19 exposure we will not see you until a two week quarantine period is accomplished.

    5) Transactions for copays and outstanding bills will be with CREDIT CARD ONLY.

    Where a thorough exam and full consideration are not 'alternative'
