Alberto Mestre, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Patient care is a partnership between the patient and physician enhanced by effective communication, trust and a genuine concern for the patient’s well-being. Adult medicine is challenging and ever changing. Acute concerns will be addressed promptly with the ability to contact me 24/7 via phone, text and/or email and same or next day office visit availability – thus avoiding serious complications. The importance of a comprehensive approach to health maintenance - which encompasses the latest in laboratory and diagnostic modalities, lifestyle modification, vaccinations and pharmacotherapy with goal oriented metrics - ensures the basis for productive and fulfilling lives. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I have the opportunity to provide my patients with the latest in wellness care in a relaxed and unhurried environment where all of my patients’ concerns are addressed comprehensively and individually.

I am committed to delivering exceptional medical care on a personal level. With over 25 years of practice experience, I have developed an interest in the care of patients with high blood pressure, lipid abnormalities, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease.
