About Us

Welcome to Northern Family Medicine. We look forward to getting to know you. We are dedicated to providing the best care for you and your family. We offer extended hours as well as an onsite retail pharmacy, a physician directed medical weight loss clinic, onsite laboratory, chronic disease management and imagining services, as well as a full service wellness and fitness center.

Northern Family Medicine, formerly Northwest Medical Partners, P.A., has been serving patients for almost 16 years. Northwest Medical Partners, P.A. was established by D. Nelson Gardner, MD in 2000. Dr. Gardner opened the doors to ProHealth Fitness Center that same year. Both facilities have served thousands of patients and clients throughout Surry County and surrounding communities throughout the region including southwest Virginia. The facilities partnered with Northern Regional Hospital and Northern Medical Group in 2015 to provide their patients with more seamless access to Northern Medical Group's core network of physician specialists and the acute care programs offered by Northern Regional Hospital.
