Onancock, Va – Riverside’s primary care providers in Nassawadox moved on July 23 to a new location just down the street.
Riverside Eastern Shore Family Medicine is now located at 10085 William F. Bernart Circle, on the corner of Rogers Drive and Hospital Avenue in Nassawadox in the building that formerly held the cancer center. Cancer services moved to Riverside’s Onancock campus in 2017.
Providers Dr. John Snyder and Nurse Practitioners Jody Chance, Tammy Hedspeth and Jeanette Sessoms offer prevention and healthy living services, well visits including Medicare annual wellness visits, medical screenings, on-site laboratory draws, chronic disease management, injections and routine procedures.
“The building that now houses our Nassawadox primary care team is only fifteen years old and was in good shape, so it was perfect for adaptation into a doctor’s office,” said John Peterman, Vice President and Administrator for Riverside Shore Health Services. “Providing primary care in Nassawadox as well as Parksley and Cape Charles makes services accessible for everyone on the Shore, and that is part of our business strategy as well as our mission to provide care in a way that we would appreciate for our own family members.”
The building was originally funded through a bequest and through donations from the community in 2001-2002. “We are glad to continue to provide services in a building that has such a rich history of community involvement. The people of the Shore have demonstrated how important health care is to them, and we are proud to continue our commitment to serving them in this renovated facility,” said Peterman.
At all of Riverside’s primary care practices, a few appointments are set aside every day for people who need same day care. In addition, the Nassawadox practice is open the first Saturday of every month from 9am – 1pm for appointments or walk-in patients. On the remaining Saturdays each month, Riverside Cape Charles Medical Center is open from 9am – 1pm.
