New Patients

Welcome to Riverside Vascular Specialists. Our specially trained surgeons provide diagnosis as well as medical and surgical treatment of diseases and conditions of the vascular system. Here is helpful information for patients new to our practice.

Appointments
Physicians are available for consultation and follow up appointments at either our Williamsburg or Newport News location.  

Office consultation requires a referral from your primary care physician. If you need our assistance in securing the referral, please contact us and we'll be glad to help.

If you need to change your appointment time, we appreciate notification at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled visit.  

Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first appointment.

What to bring to your first appointment:
  • Insurance card,
  • Photo I.D.,
  • Co-payment, if needed, 
  • List of medications and dosages or the original prescription bottles.

If you are being treated by a physician of Riverside Medical Group, we can access your medical records electronically. Otherwise, please bring copies of relevant medical records, if possible.

Diagnostic Testing
Testing may include vascular ultrasound testing or a more specialized test called an angiogram. Many ultrasound tests may be performed in the Vascular Lab in our office.  Some tests including angiograms are performed at the hospital and our staff will make those arrangements for you.

Insurance
We accept most major insurance including Medicare. When you make your appointment, please confirm that we accept your insurance.
