About Pratt Medical Group

Pratt Medical Center is the oldest medical group in Fredericksburg, dating back to 1937, when five primary care physicians joined together to deliver better patient care. Pratt has always had a foundation of primary care, which we built upon to include many specialties and services to meet a wide range of healthcare needs for your family.

Today we start a new era for the medical group as we become Pratt Medical Group. While still holding true to the ideals that started with Dr. Frank Pratt, we look to the future with Dr Scott Walker and his vision of patient centered excellence, conveyed by caring providers in state-of-the-art facilities. Our goal is to promote access to healthcare, maintain wellness, and manage illness in a high-quality, cost effective manner, throughout the communities we serve.
