Dr. Amar Shah Leaving Prime Care Family Practice

Dr. Amar Shah Leaving Prime Care Family Practice

Dear Prime Care Patient, 

As some of you may know, in 2018 Dr. Amar Shah opened Vital Care Family Practice, a medical practice serving the Midlothian area, and has been splitting his time between the two practices.  

Recently, Dr. Amar Shah has made the difficult decision to no longer see patients at Prime Care Family Practice and will focus his practice at Vital Care. This change is effective as of August 12, 2019. 

Your medical care, and the service you receive, remain our top priority.  For existing patients who have appointments already scheduled with Dr. Amar Shah, we will reschedule the appointment with another Prime Care medical provider. If you would like to request a specific provider, please get in touch as soon as possible to let us know, and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.  

For patients who choose to would like to see Dr. Amar Shah in his new Vital Care practice , we will work with you to securely transfer all your confidential medical records. To begin this process please visit this link to and follow the instructions to complete the records transfer request. There is no charge to have your records electronically transferred.  

All providers and staff at Prime Care Family Practice are value you as a patient and are committed to your ongoing healthcare. Should you have any questions regarding this transition feel free to give us a call at 804.526.1111.

Congratulations To Dr. Lesli Brown

Please help us congratulate Dr. Lesli Brown on the birth of a healthy baby boy!

Dr. Brown will be out on maternity leave through July 29th taking time to rest and enjoy her new bundle of joy.

See How PrimeCare Became More Efficient To Serve Our Patients Better

Prime Care Family Practice has been serving the needs of the Tri Cities community for over 25 years. As our practice grew, and technology changed, we realized we had to assess our current practices and make changes to become more efficient and provide more convenience to our patients.

It has been five years since we took on this initiative and introduced eClinicalWorks, a solution allowing our patients to request appointments, refills or contact us using the secure Healow app.  We’ve also introduced other services including telemedicine to provide more convenient and efficient options for patients and providers.

See the video below for more.

National Drug Take Back Day 2018

Prime Care Family Practice encourages you to participate in the 2018 National Drug Take Back Event on April 28th from 10am-2pm where you can bring unused prescription drugs to be safely disposed of.

Last year Americans nationwide did their part to reduce the opioid crisis by bringing the DEA and its more than 4,200 local and tribal law enforcement partners a record-setting 912,305 pounds of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for disposal at more than 5,300 collection sites.

On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. our local area Police Departments will partner with the Drug Enforcement Administration to give the public its 15th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Prince George Police Department – side parking lot, Hopewell Police Department – parking lot by main entrance, Petersburg Police Department – CVS Pharmacy, Colonial Heights Police Department – Toys R Us parking lot or the Chesterfield County Police Department – Manchester High School front loop. The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.
The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.
The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends — and
the home medicine cabinet.
Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold.
Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs
saves lives and protects the environment.
Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs.
