Peter P. Ramirez, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

After many years of practicing internal medicine and treating chronic illness, it has become clear that trying to prevent disease before it occurs or diagnosing significant problems early and preventing progression are key components of good health. I have become a proponent of better living by promoting dietary changes and exercise, and I partner with my patients to develop a plan that fits their individual needs.

The MDVIP practice model, sometimes referred to as concierge medicine, gives me the time to investigate and the tools to screen for and uncover many silent illnesses, that if found early, can be dealt with effectively and truly make a difference. The comprehensive, annual MDVIP Wellness Program includes advanced screenings focused on key areas, such as heart health, bone health, sleep, stress, nutrition and respiratory issues. As my patients' personal doctor, I encourage very open and casual relationships and am available 24 hours a day by cell phone for urgent needs. My patients also have their own website to communicate with me securely and confidentially by email, and I can send copies of test results and reports. This type of relationship with attention to detail, open communication, understanding and continuity is what I aim to deliver to each patient in my primary care practice on a daily basis.

My practice is located in Glen Burnie, Maryland and serves patients from the entire Baltimore-Annapolis corridor and surrounding areas, including Severna Park and Millersville. I am affiliated with the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, which is part of the University of Maryland Medical System. My specialized interests include adult medicine, preventive medicine and wellness, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and internal medicine. If you would like to learn more about my personalized healthcare practice and the MDVIP Wellness Program, please make a complimentary appointment.
