Have a question? That’s why we are here! Our staff will make every effort to answer your call. If all of our staff are assisting patients and you receive voicemail, please leave your name, date of birth, two telephone numbers where you may be reached and a brief description of your medical problem so that we may process your call promptly.
Your records are confidential and will not be released without a signed consent from you.
Our physicians acknowledge that providing specialized surgical care is dependent upon maintaining a collaborative relationship with the referring physicians. We value our relationship with referring physicians and strive to keep them informed of your diagnosis and treatment, as well as your progress while under our care. It is our policy to refer patients back to their primary care physician, so that he or she may oversee your routine medical care.
For emergencies, our physicians are available to you 24 hours a day. You can call our main off number (804) 559-0194, and after hours you will be transferred to our on-call physician service. If at any time you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
