Practitioner Referrals

To our knowledge, there are no practitioners in Charlottesville who do a functional and integrative medicine practice that is identical to ours.  However, both Dr. Albert and Dr. Wright have worked with collaboratively with the following medical physician.

    • David Schwartz, MD, whom we have known for many years and greatly respect, has a small “Mom and Pop” integrative medicine practice similar to ours in Louisa. He does not take any insurance, including Medicare, but his charges are reasonable.  His office is open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.  The office phone number is 540-967-2050. 

The VIM Front Office is permanently closed as of
Monday June, 17, 2019

We will no longer be open at this location, although our mailing address will remain: Virginia Integrative Medicine, 901 Preston Avenue, Charlottesville, VA 22903.

Medical Records Release

We can provide copies of current records to you, or have copies sent to other practitioners.  Please email me at [email protected] for instructions. 

We can also fax a copy of your Health Summary and your last visit notes to your new medical provider.  Please download our  Medical Records Release Form-fillable.  It can be filled out on your computer.  Then save the form (you may need to use Save As), print, sign, and mail it to our office address.  Or, you may print, sign, scan and email it to our email address.

If you need further help, please email us at [email protected] or leave a message at 434-996-5616.

Medical Records Storage Policy

For most adults, we are required to store your chart for 6 years after your last visit.  Children will have their charts retained until they are 18 years old or 6 years after the last medical visit, whichever occurs later.
Prior to the end of the storage period, please send a signed request to our mailing address if you would like your chart sent to you when the storage period is up.  You will be charged for shipping and handling.  Please continue to update us with any address changes.    We will shred any chart not requested by the patient within the time-frame outlined above.
