New Patients

 Welcome to the Riverside Center for Internal & Family Medicine. We provide comprehensive primary care services for adults over the age of 18. 

To make an appointment, please call our office at (757) 251-2170. Please note that we accept walk-in patients as our schedule allows. We recommend that you call in advance to reduce your time waiting. 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 so that we may get to know you and obtain important health information.  

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 have been or are currently 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.

We accept most major insurance and are accepting new Medicare patients. When you make your appointment, please confirm that we accept your insurance.
