Floyd, VA – LewisGale Physicians has opened a new practice in Floyd to support the more than 15,000 area residents in need of primary care services in the rural community located in southwestern Virginia. Jared March, DO, a resident of Floyd and an established Internal Medicine physician in the New River Valley, joined LewisGale Physicians, effective February 17, and will be a key provider at the new Floyd location.

March specializes in internal medicine, which focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases and health conditions. Additionally he has extensive experience in managing chronic diseases, including working with and educating patients on lifestyle changes to improve overall health.

March completed medical school at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, VA. He completed his internship and his residency at LewisGale Hospital Montgomery, where he also served as chief resident.

"I feel extremely fortunate that I am able to work in this close-knit town where I have spent the last 13 years. During this time, I have built many relationships and I look forward to offering primary care services not only to my friends and neighbors, but to all of the local residents living within this area filled with unique charm that I am proud to call home," explained March.

"This is another important step that we are taking as we look to expand our footprint to better serve our patients close to home. We continually strive to deliver not only the highest levels of quality care to patients, but we want to make these vital services convenient to those in even the most remote areas of southwest Virginia," says Michelle Peery, director of operations at LewisGale Physicians.

March is now seeing patients and scheduling appointments at the newly opened office on Franklin Pike. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, patients can call his office at (540) 745-5060.
