Letter from the Director

Lynchburg Family Medicine Residency’s thirty-ninth year old mission of “Educating Family Physicians through Excellent Patient Care” reflects our dual goals to provide continuous, compassionate and competent healthcare that develops the practice skills of our resident physicians for the challenges of their future career. We are meeting these goals with our enthusiastic faculty, outstanding staff, state-of-the-art facilities, diverse patient demographics, and supportive community partners. I invite you to consider joining our team by contacting us or applying to our training opportunities.

Our faculty physicians come from a wide variety of experiences and possess a tremendous mix of styles, personalities, and talents that provide outstanding examples for our residents. Not only do we enjoy a high faculty-to-resident ratio, but the passion for our patients and residents is evident to all who visit. Our faculty posses expertise in Sports Medicine, Obstetrics, International Experiences, Practice Management, Optometry, Pediatrics, Hospice, and Palliative Care, providing the ongoing clinical simulation that adds spice to our Family Medicine Center.

Our program is housed in a spacious and beautiful facility that meets the needs of team care and excellent teamwork. We are well supported in the facility with the smiling faces of supportive staff and nurses, having also organized ourselves into three care teams to maintain patient continuity and a personal feel for our patients. We have digital radiology, outstanding laboratory expertise, three procedure rooms, optometric care and OB’GYN ultrasound for our patients. We have partnered with Virginia Legal Aid – to fill gaps of care remedied by basic legal representation – and with the Community Service Board – to better address the mental health issues of the children in our practice.

Our practice is a NCQA-recognized, Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home. For over 35 years, Lynchburg Family Medicine has played a pivotal role in the health of the Lynchburg Community. As Centra’s oldest and most productive practice, we enjoy the reputation that leads to building a broad base of patients of all ages and backgrounds. Lynchburg’s medical community is unusually broad for a city our size and recruited with the understanding of family medicine residents being welcomed by the community.  The medical community is proud of the residents we produce and we are very impressed with the education that they provide our residents.

We welcome you to check out Lynchburg Family Medicine Residency. You may never have heard of Lynchburg or been to Central Virginia, but once you visit us, you will not forget how happy and well trained our residents are.

With best wishes in your search,
David S. Gregory, MD, FAAFP
