Request an Appointment

New patients are always welcome in our practice, and you never wait long for your first appointment - we often have new patient appointments within 1 day! (Please contact your primary care physician for a referral if required by your insurance company.)

We can also schedule your follow-up or testing appointments quickly and to meet your busy schedule.

To schedule an appointment, please call our main office at (434) 293-4072.


Missed Appointments

In fairness to others, we require advance notice to cancel or change an appointment. You may be charged a fee for each appointment or test missed or not cancelled with appropriate advance notice. Missing more than two appointments without providing advance notice is grounds for discharge from the practice.

Type of Appointment To Cancel or Change
New Consultations and Follow-up Visits 24 hour notice
Echocardiography Testing 24 hour notice
Nuclear Cardiology Testing 48 hour notice

Please call our main office at (434) 293-4072 if you have any questions.
