Robert S. Fell, D.O.
Dr. Fell earned his medical degree from the Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg. After an internship at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, he completed a family medicine residency at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. He is board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
With a U.S. Navy career spanning 20 years, Dr. Fell spent 10 years as a physician providing award-winning medical care to the military, under combat conditions in Afghanistan, as a full-scope physician at Naval Hospital Guam, on a local aircraft carrier, and at a Yorktown military clinic. He enjoys the outpatient setting of primary care, along with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people of all ages.
Credentialed in core family medicine procedures, Dr. Fell also performs implantable contraception device insertions, such as IUD and Nexplanon. He anticipates that the next significant development in family medicine will incorporate genetic testing to predict which medications are more likely to help individual patients with chronic diseases.
Although the Navy originally brought him to our area, Dr. Fell, along with his wife and their two children, is now grateful and proud to call Hampton Roads home. Outside of work, his favorite hobby is woodworking. He has also been a volunteer physician at Lackey Free Clinic in Yorktown.
