PartnerMD is pleased to welcome Dr. Lindsay Sherrard, a family medicine doctor who will join the Midlothian office in May. “The big thing PartnerMD provides for me is time,” Dr. Sherrard says. “I help my patients best when I know their history, their family, their concerns, and what they’ve been through in the past. That’s where I can really make a difference, and PartnerMD’s concierge model allows me to do just that.”  Before joining PartnerMD, Dr. Sherrard practiced at Patterson Avenue Family Practice and, before that, Bon Secours St. Francis Family Medicine. Every patient is different, but Dr. Sherrard’s main goal is to help her patients pursue and achieve their goals. “I don’t want my patients to be limited by their health. I want them to be able to do what they want to do in life. Accomplishing that requires a proactive approach centered on preventive care and stopping problems before they start.” She earned her M.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and completed her family medicine residency at Self Regional Healthcare in South Carolina. Dr. Sherrard joins Dr. Robert Cross, Dr. Kevin Keller, and Dr. Susan Scharpf at the office. As a company, PartnerMD has more than 10,000 members in seven offices throughout Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, and Georgia. “We are very excited to welcome Dr. Sherrard to our team in Midlothian,” PartnerMD Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder Dr. Jim Mumper said. “We’ve been looking for a female doctor to add to our group there for quite some time and believe Dr. Sherrard will be a great fit. The number one thing we look for in physicians is a desire to provide the best care possible for patients and that’s exactly what Dr. Sherrard will deliver.”
