Patients of Sommerville Family Practice, (Dr Harrington and Dr. Gooss), may have recently received a communication from Cigna Health Insurance saying the practice is no longer in-network with Cigna Health Plans. Please disregard this communication as it is not correct. SFP is In-Network with Cigna. No action is required on the part of a patient. You will receive a letter from Cigna soon correcting this miscommunication. Please contact SFP through the portal or at 804-594-0125, if you have further questions.

Welcome to Commonwealth Primary Care
Commonwealth Primary Care is a physician practice that provides medical services to patients at six offices throughout the Richmond area. Originally known as four separate practices – Family Physicians, Henrico Internists, Huguenot Primary Care and Richmond Primary Care – our doctors joined together with the common vision of a privately owned Primary Care group to care for the wellness of individuals and families in the most comprehensive, efficient and convenient way possible.

Requests for Over the Counter Medicine Prescriptions
Effective January 1, 2011, the Federal Government requires that patients have a prescription for over the counter (OTC) medicines and medical supplies in order to receive reimbursement through a tax free HSA, FSA, or HRA.
A Patient requesting prescriptions for OTC medications and/ or supplies should make an appointment with his or her health care provider to discuss the use of the medication before a prescription can be written.
If you attend an appointment for another problem you may ask for OTC prescriptions during that appointment, as long as the request is for three or fewer OTC items. More than three items will require a separate appointment so that your healthcare provider will have adequate time to evaluate your need and use of the medication.
When a prescription is written by a Physician, Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner, that professional is verifying that the medication is appropriate for the patient. Please allow us adequate time to evaluate your request and provide you with safe and appropriate medical care.
Thank you for your continued trust in the doctors and staff at Commonwealth Primary Care.
