VP&O Desk Reference

As a service to our referring physicians we have compiled our version of a Physician's Reference to provide you with four types of information. 1) A brief history and description of our company so that you can be confident of our depth and commitment. 2) A picture and bio introduction to our professional staff so that you can be familiar with the practitioners that are treating your patients. 3) A condensed catalog of our products and services to assist you in readily identifying the most appropriate device for your patient as well as introducing new products as they emerge. 4) Contact information and addresses for our locations throughout Virginia and North Carolina.

Orthotic Pocket Reference Guide

This guide to over 80 orthotic devices, in a handy 4” by 5” size is great to have around the office, nurse’s station, or even a scrub or lab coat pocket. It features a picture and description of each device as well as an overview of the indications for its use.

Prescription Pads

We are glad to provide prescription pads to our referring physicians. However, due to the number of physician groups and hospitals that have converted to Electronic Medical Records Systems, we no longer make unsolicited stocking deliveries. If you would like pads or need a re-supply please contact our nearest office or simply contact our O&P Coordinator and we will be happy to have them delivered.

O&P Coordinator, Charlie Coulter

As part of our ongoing effort to provide unparalleled service to our referring physicians Virginia Prosthetics and Orthotics is the only O&P provider in Virginia that employs an O&P coordinator. Charlie serves as the liaison between the company and the health care professionals we work with to ensure that they receive the highest levels of service possible and to promote a cohesive team approach to orthotic and prosthetic care. Charlie is a graduate of Roanoke College. He became involved with the O&P industry after losing his leg in a vehicular accident in 1996. His additional responsibilities include providing in-service educational programs, introducing new products, and serving as the main point of contact for suggestions, questions or concerns from our health care industry customers.

Continued Education

We offer a number of presentations explaining the services that we provide to our patients and the health care professionals that we work with as well as detailed explanations of the various orthotic and prosthetics devices we provide. We are happy to schedule a visit to your office and make these presentations, many of which are approved for CEU credit by the Virginia Physical Therapist Association.

Peer Visits and Consults

Many times, it can be helpful for a new amputee or someone contemplating an amputation to be able to speak with another amputee. Hearing how their amputation improved or possibly saved their lives can be comforting to those who have just undergone or are about to undergo an amputation. An amputee peer can explain how they have adapted to limb loss and help instill in new amputees the confidence that they too will regain their lives and move on. We have several amputee employees who act as peers. We are often asked by physicians and friends to meet with patients and we are glad to do this. We can arrange to do this at one of our offices or at a hospital if necessary.
