Meaghan Henson
Medical Assistant


My name is Meaghan Henson, I’m currently working full time as a medical assistant and secretary for Dr. Dahlgren.  I recently graduated from VCU with a degree in sociology and now looking forward to moving more into the medical field.  I am currently enrolled full time in J Sargeant Reynolds in nursing.  I love working with all the athletes, kids, and adults that come in our office. I especially love working in the sports medicine field with Dr. Dahlgren.


I have learned so much while working here and I enjoy it a great deal. Dr. Dahlgren is a very intelligent, fun, energetic, laid back doctor that I look up to in more ways than one.  I also have a four year old daughter that I’m training to be into sports and in the medical field as well.

Phyllis R. Whitlow



I was born in a small SW Virginia town and graduated from Pocahontas High School in 1961.

I went to work for the local “town doctor”, Herbert Porter, M. D. in September of that year and remained there for 6 years. My position at that time consisted of receptionist duties, secretarial duties, occasionally assisting the doctor and his nurse, and even going on “house calls” with Dr. Porter.


I married in April of 1967 and accepted a secretarial position with Richmond Orthopaedic Clinic, working for a great gentleman, Dr. William M. Deyerle for 28 years.  Upon his retirement, and the merge with then West End Orthopaedic Clinic and now Ortho Virginia West End Orthopaedic Clinic, I accepted the secretarial position with Dr. Howard Stern and worked for him for 3 years.  When he left the Clinic I accepted the secretarial position for Dr. David Urquia, an excellent spine surgeon and remained with him for 13 years, until his relocation to Maine.  I then accepted the secretarial position with Dr. Thorp Davis, a great sports medicine physician and have been with him for 2 and l/2 years.
