Like other area medical providers, Virginia Interventional and Vascular Associates have instituted protocols to help stem the spread of the coronavirus causing COVID-19. These include screening questions for patients, and limiting visitors to our facilities. We will continue to evaluate and adjust our response to COVID-19 based on recommendations from the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).

Everyone entering the facility must:

  • Answer screening questions at time of scheduling, registration, and upon arrival.
  • Wear a covering over their mouth and nose (mask, scarf, bandana) while in the office.
  • Have their temperature checked upon arrival.

We are taking proactive steps to address a number of concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), including patient screenings, enhanced environmental cleaning, limiting visitors, and offering a telemedicine appointment option. First and foremost, we want to maintain a safe environment for our patients and employees.

We are pleased to offer telemedicine appointments for applicable visit types. This appointment type requires the patient to have high-speed internet access and a device with a camera and microphone. It is important for the device’s operating system to be up to date and have a compatible internet browser. Please see the links below to help you prepare your device for your visit.
