The Family Medicine Center (FMC) is a comprehensive affordable health care facility for individuals and families in Virginia Beach, VA. For nearly thirty years we have provided our patients with a superior alternative to the corporate, impersonal services of most HMOs by offering them better care and a more personal experience.

Whether you need routine, wellness, or urgent care for you or your children, nutrition or weight loss counseling, lab work, or any other kind of primary care, the Family Medicine Center’s team of health care professionals will provide you with the highest level of medical care and attention. Sameday appointments are normally available.

Dr. Robert Blackwood received his medical degree and Board Certification in 1984. In the twenty-seven years since then he’s dedicated his life entirely to family and medicine. As a father of ten children, with his wife, Catherine, he has a deep appreciation of the challenges families face; he understands how health issues affect relationships, and how to cope with them. As a doctor, he has a comprehensive medical knowledge, and an uncommon breadth of medical skills, having worked in both rural and urban environments, and in Family Medicine, Emergency, and Obstetrics.

Although Dr. Blackwood is known for his keen mind and extensive experience as a physician, he is most sought after for his compassionate manner and care for all of his patients.
