John R. Schroder, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Balance and Moderation

I learned a great deal about healthy living and wellness from my grandfather who lived to be 92 years old and was lucky enough to stay in his own home until he passed.  One of his old adages was "Keep everything in balance, and live with moderation." I have tried to achieve this in my own life and translate that philosophy to my primary care medical practice. As an internal medicine physician, I value the partnerships I build with my patients. These personal relationships add an element beyond basic concierge medicine that support my patients throughout the year inside and outside of the exam room.

Personal Discussions

As a private doctor, I am committed to keeping my patients updated on the very latest health information and preventive screenings. Disease prevention and healthy living are promoted through individual discussions regarding the “gray areas” where decision making is not clearly supported by medical literature and data. In these situations, I draw upon my experience serving in a medical leadership position at The Christ Hospital Health Network in Cincinnati, Ohio. The MDVIP Wellness Program helps me proactively concentrate on all areas of health, including heart and bone health, diabetes prevention, stress, nutrition, sleep, fitness and more.

Prompt Communication

I value the uniqueness of each of my patients. I consider myself very fortunate to practice in a personalized healthcare setting where we have time to explore important nuances regarding individual healthcare decisions. Prompt attention to health issues and ease of communication can make a big difference for peace of mind - not only to the patient, but also to their family members.
