Virginia Family Medicine offers patients higher level of personalized, customized care through Privia Health partnership

September 06, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Virginia Family Medicine is thrilled to be part of an exclusive, invitation-only community of top physician practices called Privia Health. At VA Family Medicine, we work closely with Privia to provide our patients with a healthcare experience that focuses not only on convenient access to care when they get sick, but also on customized programs to maintain and advance their health and wellbeing.

As part of the Privia's network of Top Doctors, we offer a unique care experience as compared to traditional primary care practices. These differences include:

  • Care Orientation (as opposed to just treating you when you get sick) - Keep you healthy, proactively manage chronic disease
  • Urgent Care - Same-day/next-day appointments
  • Time with our doctors - Unhurried, comprehensive visits that give us time to fully understand your needs, and then work with you to develop a plan of care
  • Doctor access outside of office visits - Email and telephone access to our doctors so you can avoid the time & expense of an office visit for many issues & follow-up questions
  • Access to technologies that improve your convenience - Secure online access to a personal health record; online appointment and prescription refill requests; exclusive website with trusted Mayo Clinic health information
  • Interventions to improve your health - Prescription medications, nutrition & fitness assessments, custom Wellness Plans, personalized health & wellness coaching, customized health information targeted to your needs
  • NO fees for incidental administrative services (copying & faxing records, processing prescription refills, completing medical forms, email & phone consultations, sending lab results) - included in membership fee
  • Service philosophy - Personalized care that exceeds your expectations! You are treated as a valued Member and client

  • All patients who wish to participate in our membership practice are asked to join Privia Health for a monthly membership fee starting at just $45 ($25 per month for those under the age of 40). This membership fee is a small fraction of the cost of concierge medicine programs that many other top physicians are implementing. We feel our approach is a much better value for our patients. The membership fee enables us to have the additional time that is needed to provide more personalized care to each of our patients including spending time communicating with you and proactively managing your care outside of office visits.
