Welcome to Medical Associates of Central Virginia
Our practice is committed to the overall medical care of our adult patients through our Internal Medicine and specialty practices. We invite you to learn more about Medical Associates as you explore our website. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns. We welcome your feedback.
Please contact our office at 434.947.3944 during business hours to schedule an appointment. We offer same day appointments for established patients who are sick and need to be seen that day.
Should you need to cancel or change an appointment, kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice. Failure to provide cancellation 24 hours in advance may result in an additional charge.
Contacting Your Provider
Should you have a question or concern for your provider, please contact our office during business hours. You will be directed to a nurse who will discuss the nature of your call and forward the information to a physician for review. Once your issue is addressed, either your provider or the nurse will get back with you. Rest assured that every call to our office is important to us and we will do what we can to answer any questions you have in a timely, compassionate manner.
Our office will notify you of the results of any diagnostic test which was ordered by our physicians. Should you have any questions or concerns about the result of a test, do not hesitate to contact your provider.
Medications and Prescription Refills
Please contact your pharmacy for prescription refills. Should your prescription require renewal, your pharmacy will contact our office. Should you need to be seen by our office prior to our renewing a prescription for you, our office will contact you.
Please note that it normally takes at least 48 hours for our office to accommodate a prescription refill, so do not wait until you are completely out of your medicine prior to ordering a refill.
For the safety and good health of our patients, no prescriptions may be renewed after normal office hours.
After Hours and Emergencies
If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or go to the emergency room.
We request that you contact our office during normal office hours for non-urgent or routine questions and for prescription refills. Physicians are on call after hours for acute care and urgent, non-emergency questions. You may reach them by dialing 434.947.3944 and speaking with the answering service.
Walk-In Nursing Services
(Blood Pressure Checks, B-12 Injections, Seasonal Flu Vaccinations)
Our nursing staff provides walk-in services to our patients during the hours of 2:30-4:30 pm without an appointment.
We do not require fasting lab work. Lab appointments are scheduled throughout the day and are needed to avoid a patient having to wait prolonged periods of time before having blood collected and to ensure the lab orders are submitted prior to a patient’s arrival.
