Welcome to Valley Medical Group!

Valley Medical Group has provided comprehensive and convenient primary and specialty care to residents of the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts for more than 25 years.

We provide you with the finest preventive and medical care services available to help you and your family live better, longer. Our staff takes pride in serving adults, adolescents, and children in a courteous and respectful manner.

Patient Centered Medical Home
Valley Medical Group (VMG) has been certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Level III Patient - Centered Medical Home. What does this mean to you, our patient?

At VMG, you select a primary care practitioner as your first stop for any preventative or acute care. Your primary care practitioner will, over time, get to know you and your family, your preferences and values for medical care, and be in the best position to provide education, support, encouragement, and care when ever necessary.

Your primary care practitioner works with a team of health care professionals to coordinate and provide the right care for you at the right time. These professionals include a physician, nurse practitioner of physician assistant, medical assistants and nurses, as well as receptionists to help connect you to your team and services. Your healthcare team will work with you to set goals and treatment plans for improving your health and wellness, and managing your chronic conditions. If a referral to a specialist is needed, your healthcare team will make sure that all the necessary information is shared and that the results of the consultation are available quickly so that the care plans can be adjusted as needed.

We have same day access, every day, so that "if you are sick today, you can be seen today" by a member of your healthcare team (in most cases). And if you are sick after hours and on weekends, we have urgent care services readily available so that you don't have to go to an Emergency Room or an outside clinic unconnected to y our primary care provider.

VMG has an Electronic Medical Record to help organize your health care information and track your healthcare needs. Through our secure web portal, we can make sure that you can get in touch with your healthcare team easily, request or book appointments, get the results of your lab and other tests, and get up to date health education materials.

VMG's Patient Centered Medical Home ensures that patients are at the center of their healthcare and the most important member of their healthcare team.
