We are beyond excited to announce Family Medicine physician Dr. Kenneth McVey is joining Clinch Valley Physicians Associates. Appointments may be made by calling 276.964.1281.
Dr. McVey commented, "My grandfather was a family physician for approximately 50 years in town and my dad owned his own medical equipment company. The exposure I’ve had, through both my father’s business and my grandfather’s medical practice, has highlighted how medical care can significantly improve one’s quality of life. It’s very hard to go anywhere in Southwest Virginia without hearing stories of how my grandfather has helped someone. Simply put, my grandpa was and will always be my hero. The way he truly cared for others and put their health and happiness first will always inspire me. My goal since graduating high school in 2009 has been to return to Richlands and follow in my grandpa’s footsteps. It is the honor of a lifetime.”

Kenneth McVey, DO
