Family Physicians are trained to provide health care for patients of all ages, including infants and the elderly. At our practice, we encourage wellness through preventive exams, immunizations, and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Preventive care includes well-child exams, women’s health issues and physicals for all ages.
At Rio Family Medicine, our goal is to treat each person as an individual with unique concerns that require our undivided attention.
Most conditions are treated in the office, including acute illness, chronic diseases, mental health problems, musculoskeletal injuries, mole removal and laceration repair. Our office is equipped to perform IV therapy, wart freezing, EKGs, vision and hearing screenings, and joint injections.
With more serious problems we will coordinate your care with the hospitalists at Martha Jefferson Hospital or UVA Hospital. We are available to provide a safe and coordinated transition after any overnight stay.
When we aren’t able to fully resolve your medical problems, we know which specialist will be right for you, and will help coordinate a referral.
