Hello! Sterling Family Practice has some great news to share!
Please welcome the newest member of our team, Stefanie Jennings, NP-C she is trained in Family Medicine as well as working on her Functional Medicine Certification. Please see her bio under Our Providers page.
As many of you have heard, we are transitioning out of the larger organization of Loudoun Medical Group to a small privately owned practice owned solely by Dr. Fletcher,. Over the next several weeks we will be transitioning electronic medical records, phone systems, etc.--so please bear with us as the dust settles.
The patient portal will not be accessible for a few weeks, so if you have any questions or are looking for lab results that were drawn more than two weeks ago, prescription refills, please send an email to email@example.com.
We continue to participate with several insurance companies; however, we will no longer be an
in-network provider with Aetna.
We will kept our website updated with new changes as they arise.
Thank you for being our dedicated patients. We continue to strive to provide excellent care and we love and appreciate you all!

Congratulations to Cynthia Yew, NP for becoming the latest of our providers to become a certified Functional Medicine Provider through the Institute of Functional Medicine! With the start of the new year, there are several announcements we need to share!
Dr. Fletcher will now return to the insurance world and begin seeing patients under insurance. She will not be able to see Medicare patients until next year when her contract with Medicare is reinstated. Dr. Fletcher is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine. She will continue to offer her manual therapy under insurance coverage and her alternative therapies on a cash basis.
Our ability to do tele-visits is now available! These visits are helpful in reviewing test results and for acute visits where a detailed physical exam is not needed. We are able to bill your insurance company for these visits based on the time spent in the visit. Please call the front desk for more details and available appointments.
With cold and flu season among us, we want to remind you that Caitlin in our IV center is ready and available to give IV infusions of Vitamin C, Myers' Cocktails, Ozone, and UV Light among other things to keep you healthy through the season.
