Frequently Asked Questions

Our primary goal at Virginia Prosthetics and Orthotics is to provide our patients with the proper orthotic or prosthetic devices to enable them to regain their lives and mobility. If you're a Medical Professional and have a question that can not be answered here, please contact us at 540-366-8287

Yes, custom bracing and prosthetic appointments typically take about 45 minutes to an hour and our practitioners have patients scheduled throughout the day. If you deem your patient's situation to be emergent, please have your office call us before sending the patient over and we will make every effort to work them in as soon as possible.

Our facility operates like any other medical services provider. Your patient needs a prescription or referral, their insurance cards and photo ID. If you are not sure what to write on your prescription, contact our office and we will be glad to assist you.

This is not a problem. O&P technology is constantly evolving and new devices are always coming to market. Have your staff contact one of our practitioners and we will be pleased to assist you in making the best treatment plan for your particular patient. We may also recommend evaluating your patient at our office first, then request a prescription following our examination.
