Your Dedicated Team

Your ‘patient experience’ comprises many individuals within our practice. As you were setting up your new patient consultation you were served by one of our new patient care coordinators who will be your advocate and will ensure all of your details are put in place for a smooth visit. On the day of your appointment you will be greeted in our office by our patient care team who will check you in and make sure you are comfortable. Our medical assistants will then escort you to your private consultation room, where you will be then introduced to your physician assistant and meet your spinal specialist. Together they will spend quality time getting to know your pain history, challenges and goals for recovery. We enjoy learning more about our patients as they have grown into long-standing relationships. Improving the lives of each of our patients is our core purpose!

Virginia Spine Institute didn't tell me what I wouldn't be able to do, they told me what I could do.
