NEWPORT NEWS-The Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group (TPMG) has announced that The Village Doctor practice on Warwick Boulevard in Newport News will close in the New Year after more than 20 years.

The Village Doctor, located at 10234 Warwick Blvd., will close on January 31, 2023. Dr. John E. Brady, who’s been operating the practice solo, is leaving to assume a new administrative role with TPMG.

“I know this news will come as a shock to many of you, but please know this decision was as necessary as it was difficult,” Brady said in a statement to his patients in announcing the closure. “Family Medicine, even in a wonderful little practice, can be exhausting, and I am burning out. I feel compelled to step away from clinical medicine and focus on improving the larger healthcare system, so I have accepted an administrative role with TPMG as their new Chief Medical Officer for Population Health. I will be transitioning into that role over the next few months.”

Brady continued, “Though numerous attempts have been made to find a new physician to take over The Village Doctor, there has been no interest, and the practice will need to close.”

Patients with The Village Doctor with questions related to continued medical care, transcripts, or prescriptions are asked to call 757-223-0124.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
