At Lifetime Family Medicine
If you think you need to drive to Fairfax or Loudoun for care by one of Washingtonian Magazine’s 2017 Top Doctors, you’re mistaken. Dr. Theresa Shupe, owner of Lifetime Family Medicine and the recipient of that impressive accolade, is a good deal closer. In fact, she and her terrific team are in Gainesville.
Located at 4535 John Marshall Hwy #105, Lifetime Family Medicine offers innovative medical attention via a combination of clinical expertise, a wellness focus, and modern technologies, right here in Prince William. “We strive to provide the best care possible for each of our patients,” said Margarita Rivera, the accountant for the practice. “We respect the individuality and singular needs of each of our patients, and are committed to delivering only the highest quality care.”
Lifetime offers many services including pediatrics, general health, and acute care, as well as diabetes management and health, asthma, and heart health. The practice offers vaccine and lab test resources as well as a focus on preventative care: the best kind of care there is. “We conform to the HIPAA laws; privacy and safety is important to us. We keep a welcoming waiting room and a play area for the little ones to occupy their curiosity, and our friendly front desk staff are trained to keep patients comfortable and, equally as important, keep the wait to a minimum,” said Rivera.
As for Dr. Theresa Shupe, she is board certified in family medicine and specializes in pediatrics, women’s health, and weight management. However, it’s really the entire staff that contributes to patient satisfaction. “We strive to work well together to increase our productivity and create a cohesive working environment. We have open communication between different departments and hold monthly staff meetings to cultivate relationships and build better team dynamics. Most of all, every member of the team knows, and adheres to the fact, that patient care comes first,” said Rivera.
Lifetime Family Medicine is also part of the Privia Medical Group, a physician-led, multi-specialty, national medical firm dedicated to providing better coordinated care to patients. “Privia gave us the chance to extend our services to our patients. Because they oversee our credentialing, adherence to medical compliance, and quality measures, the practice is freed up to focus solely on the care of our patients. Overall, being under the flagship of Privia has been a very positive experience,” Rivera expanded.
Lifetime Family Medicine is also committed to being involved with the community and participates frequently in local events. “We fully understand the value of being a good neighbor and for our patients to have the ability to get to know us outside of the practice. At Lifetime Family Medicine, our patients are part of our family and as such, each and every one is important to us. We don’t shrink from our responsibility to our patients, our community and our team,” shared Rivera.
