Don't Wait for Care
It can be a hassle trying to schedule an appointment when you or a family member is sick. James River Internists is committed to working our established patients into existing daily schedules in a timely manner for acute care.
Our same-day and next-day visits are for patients experiencing things like, but not limited to:
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Urinary tract infection
- Sore throat
- Low-grade fever
Please understand that acute visits are for minor, urgent medical needs only, not for long-term chronic issues or preventive services. For example, our acute visits are not for diabetic checkups, medication refills, general exams, pap smears, well child exams, or immunizations. Our acute visits are also not for medical emergencies, like chest pain or shortness of breath. You should go to the closest emergency room or call 911 if you have a medical emergency.
Why Only Current Patients?
Because our providers want to truly get to know you and your health history, new patient appointments are scheduled for longer-than-normal time slots, and are not part of our same-day acute visit schedule. To make a non-acute appointment or to become a new patient at our practice, please use the link below to learn about our team and book online directly with your provider of choice.
