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.
A message for people who have not have had a vaccine to prevent Shingles
Commonwealth Primary Care, in association with National Clinical Research, is pleased to offer our patients an opportunity to receive a free vaccine for the prevention of shingles.
If you had chicken pox as a youngster, the virus that caused it lives in your body and may re-manifest at another time, especially in people over the age of 50, to cause shingles. It is recommended that adults over 50 years of age have a vaccination to decrease the risk of shingles from occurring (or minimizing the symptoms if recurrence occurs).
Doctors at National Clinical Research are just beginning a study which will provide this vaccination at no cost. The sponsoring company is seeking information about how best to administer the vaccinations for the best effect.
If you would like to be a part of this study and receive your shingles vaccination, please call
(804) 755-2300 to set up your appointment.
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.
