New Patients

Welcome to Riverside Shore Medical Center at Metompkin. We provide comprehensive primary care services for adults and older children.

Appointments
To make an appointment, please call our office. If you need to change your appointment time, we appreciate notification at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled visit.  Walk-in patients are also welcomed.

Please arrive thirty minutes early for your first appointment so that we may get to know you and obtain important health information. 

What to bring to your first appointment:

  • Insurance card
  • Photo I.D.,
  • Co-payment, if needed,
  • A list of medications and dosages or the original prescription bottles.

If you have been or are currently being treated by a physician of Riverside Medical Group, we can access your medical records electronically. If not, and if at all possible, please bring copies of relevant medical records.

Insurance
We accept most major insurance including Anthem, Cigna, Choice, Optimum, United Healthcare and Virginia Health Network among others. We are also accepting new Medicare patients. When you call to make your first appointment, please verify that we accept your insurance.

Medical Records
As a means of expediting care and increasing patient safety, we store medical records electronically. This highly-secure system facilitates fast, clear communication among your physicians. In the event of an emergency, our emergency physicians have immediate access to your medical history. This information can be critical and sometimes lifesaving in helping to properly diagnose and treat your condition. Please be assured your personal medical records are confidential, and we will not release information without your permission.
