After receiving some pretty devastating test results from my OB. I contacted the Henrico Doctors office-the scheduler got me in the next day and reassured me that Dr. Head would answer all my questions. The day of my appointment Dr. Head provided an abundance of information that put us at ease. I appreciate everything this office has done for me ? from the scheduler answering the phone to the genetic counselor to Dr. Head. I will recommend this office to everyone!!

Very knowledgeable but felt as though she was very dismissive. Appointment felt rushed and impersonal. Calling to make or reschedule appointments is horrible. You can wait more than 30 minutes on hold before you even talk to anyone.
