Brian J. Kolender, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always felt the most important aspect of my job is to listen. Taking the time to hear what the person in front of me is saying does not occur passively, but is an active process, key to learning the story of your life. Now within the framework of MDVIP I will be finding ways for you, as a patient, to become a healthy person. Together we will be creative to set new goals and forge a lifestyle that leads to wellness. If you find yourself ill, my smaller practice size allows me the time and flexibility to address health problems quickly and thoroughly.
