Michael J. Downing, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I became an internist to fulfill my goal of providing the best overall care. I believe in treating my patients as I would my family. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I am able to develop personalized healthcare plans for all of my patients. We focus on wellness and prevention and effectively manage acute and chronic conditions. The close relationships I am able to develop with my patients fosters open communication in an unrushed environment, which is imperative to providing the comprehensive care you deserve.

My affiliation with MDVIP has helped me practice internal medicine the way I was trained and allows me the time to develop educational programs for my patients, deliver prompt care and expand my services in many other areas, including preventive medicine, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and weight loss and nutritional counseling.

I continue to offer care in the office, hospital and at home when appropriate. My personalized healthcare practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge practice, serves the greater Baltimore, Maryland area and Anne Arundel County, including Glen Burnie, Pasadena, Millersville, Severna Park, Annapolis, Severn, Linthicum Heights, Arnold and Crofton.

I am affiliated with Baltimore Washington Medical Center as an attending physician.
