Prime Care Offering Telemedicine

Telemedicine is here!

In an additional step to keep you safe in these uncertain times, all of our providers at Prime Care Family Practice are now accepting appointments for Telemedicine visits.

Telemedicine allows you to discuss symptoms, medical issues, and more with your healthcare provider through a video call.

Using Telemedicine, you can receive a diagnosis, learn your treatment options, and get a prescription for many of your health concerns. It is a one to one visit with your provider, so deductibles and co-pays will be applied.

Call us at 804-526-1111 to schedule your appointment for a Telemedicine visit.

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.
