Dr. Hayden Pasco, M.D.

My Story

Dr. Hayden Pasco is from Richmond, a graduate of University of Virginia, earned her Doctor of Medicine in 2008 from the VCU School of Medicine, and completed her Family Medicine residency in 2011. Following residency she opened HCA’s Primary Health Group – Short Pump which quickly grew into a successful primary care practice. She is board certified by the American Academy of Family Physicians and is a member of the American Medical Association, Medical Society of Virginia and the Richmond Academy of Medicine. She has continued to pursue further training in preventive healthcare through certification in the BaleDoneen Method and completing advanced vascular training at the Gulf Coast Ultrasound Institute.

Dr. Pasco co-founded Whole Health Physicians because she craved a positive environment that allowed the time and space to get a wholistic view of the patient so she can treat them from the inside out. This means understanding their genetic tendencies, inflammatory and cardiovascular markers, gut health and also realizing this needs to be examined in the context of their lifestyle and personal limitations. With all of this information she and her patient together create a doable action plan to get them on the best personal path to better health.

As a cancer survivor herself, she truly understands the value of prevention and early detection. She also knows what a patient needs when they are in a medical crisis. She looks forward to being an advocate for her patients when they need her the most.


When not in the office, you will likely find her at home in Goochland, hanging out with her husband and sons in the garden, wrangling a horse to ride, gathering chicken eggs, doing yard work, running or practicing yoga. Occasionally, she finds time to paint which she loves.


Because the whole is so much more than the sum of its parts.
