Emily A. Nolfo, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

When patients entrust me with their care, they bring not only their medical histories, but their personal stories, beliefs, hopes and fears. Earning their trust allows me to build true partnerships. I see my role not only as my patients’ physician, but as their healthcare partner and coach. It is exciting to collaborate on individualized wellness strategies to improve not just health, but overall quality of life.

As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am gratified to see that many of my patients are becoming healthier, in some cases needing fewer medications, than they were in years past. MDVIP’s program allows me to practice in a style that helps me do the very best for my patients.
