David DiPietro, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician I value the relationship with my patients. I try to get to know each patient on a personal level and care for them as if they were a family member. Having practiced in Bucks County for over 25 years I have watched medicine slowly evolve into a rushed, impersonal health care system which has resulted in unhappy, frustrated patients.

My philosophy is that medical care should be delivered in a relaxed personalized atmosphere where patients feel they are listened to and have their questions answered. When medical issues arise, patients should have the peace of mind that they can be seen in a timely manner by their physician. I want my patients to know that they are the center of attention from the time they walk into the office until the time they leave. In addition, I want them to leave with a feeling of satisfaction that their health care needs were addressed.

Because of the ever changing health care system I felt I needed to give patients an option to participate in a practice where they could experience medicine the way it used to be. Being an MDVIP-affiliated physician has allowed me to do just that. This personalized approach affords me the time to deliver quality, state-of-the-art care in an unhurried, relaxed setting. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I can spend more time with patients during their office visits, therefore they are much more satisfied and their health outcomes are improved.

I am Board certified in Family Medicine and a Pharmacist. I am affiliated with Doylestown Hospital and Abington-Jefferson Health. As a family physician, I treat patients of all ages. I have special interest in cardiovascular disease prevention, hypertension, diabetes care, psychopharmacology and geriatric medicine.

When my MDVIP practice opens on October 21, 2016, I will be located in a new office with Dr. Marino located at 2325 Heritage Center Drive, Suite 200 in Furlong. In our new office you will be greeted by a friendly caring staff who will put you, the patient, first. I look forward to giving you the opportunity to once again experience medicine the way it should be.
