About Dr. Bigelow

A former VCU women’s basketball player, Dr. Bigelow discovered her passion for medicine thanks to her love of hoops. In other words, she broke one of her fingers so many times playing basketball it required surgery. It was then, while observing the team doctor during surgery, that inspiration struck.

Now, after more than a decade as a family medicine doctor in Richmond, Dr. Bigelow’s goal for all her patients remains simple. “I want to help you be the best you,” she says. Dr. Bigelow treats patients of all ages, from age six through adulthood, and she stresses the importance of preventative care, including consistent exercise and smart nutrition habits. She stays up-to-date on diet and nutritional information, so she can offer her patients the best clinical advice on the latest trends.

“Patients often ask about a keto diet, Whole30, intermittent fasting or some other new trend, and I pride myself on being a trusted resource for them,” she said. “Once we discuss the different options, we can work together to achieve the results they want, whether that’s weight loss, improved mobility, or maybe even something like being able to run a marathon.”

Dr. Bigelow’s Philosophy of Care

When meeting with a new patient, Dr. Bigelow wants to do one thing first. “Define your goals and what’s important to you,” she says. “Everyone’s different, so it’s important to talk about why you’re here and what you want to achieve so I can provide the best care possible.”

For Dr. Bigelow, it’s all about the relationship she develops with patients. “I get to know them on a personal level, learn what truly makes them happy, and work with them to make sure their health allows them to achieve their goals.”

Dr. Bigelow: Beyond the Exam Room

Dr. Bigelow grew up in Madison, New Jersey, not far from the bright lights of New York City. She’s been in Richmond since 1997, when she arrived on the campus of VCU to play basketball. After four years as a shooting guard for the Rams, Dr. Bigelow went to medical school at VCU and then completed her residency at St. Francis Family Medicine in Midlothian.

She currently lives in Midlothian with her husband and three young children. If she’s not at the office, you can find her doing something outside or playing sports, such as pick-up basketball on the weekends. Her family loves spending time together at Lake Anna, and despite the results of the last few years, she remains a dedicated New York Giants fan.
