E. Martin Maida, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internist, I am the doctor you rely on when your first question or concern arises. My role as a primary care physician is to help each of my internal medicine patients achieve or maintain optimal healthcare through wellness and prevention, as well as manage acute and chronic conditions. My goal is to partner with each of my patients, developing a relationship based on trust, mutual respect and open communication, and ultimately creating a personalized plan for achieving optimal health.

My patients know that I practice what I preach from being physically active (pursuing my love of martial arts) to eating healthy, which is key to reducing inflammation - the primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and stroke. I have a special interest in preventive medicine, bariatric medicine (weight loss), cardiovascular health, age management (aging and bioidentical hormone replacement), integrative and alternative medicine.

For 30 years, I have had the privilege of caring for others, and it's even better now. MDVIP allows me to provide care in an unrushed, uninterrupted setting, where all your individual needs are addressed and treated. My personalized primary care practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge practice, is located in Livingston, New Jersey and serves West Orange, Short Hills, Essex Fells, Verona, The Caldwells, East Hanover, Montclair, as well patients from New York and Pennsylvania. I am affiliated with Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
