How Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Could Impact Your Care

Virginia Cardiovascular Specialists (VCS) is focused on keeping our patients and staff safe. We are carefully monitoring updates and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health. We recognize that there is a lot of information out there on COVID-19 and we want to share what we know and how it could impact your upcoming visit.

Don’t Ignore Heart Symptoms

Please note at this time we are asking that patients not bring visitors to their appointment. Please do not bring children. We are asking that patients wear a mask or scarf as we are focused on protecting our patients and staff.

Should I reschedule my visit if I am ill or have had exposure to COVID-19?

YES, please cancel your appointment and reschedule for a later date. You may use our automated appointment reminder system to cancel your appointment. Routine care and screenings can wait until after you’re feeling better and symptom-free for 14 days without the use of medications for fever, cough, etc.

Can I refill a prescription without an appointment?

Please call 804.288.4827 or utilize our secure patient portal to speak to a nurse for triage. We may be able to refill your prescription remotely.

If you are experiencing active chest pain please dial 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.
