Greg Flippo, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The best possible medical practice from a patient’s perspective is one where the physician takes their many years of clinical experience and the absolute latest scientific technology then combines it with a philosophy of small practice size allowing both highly personalized and ultra-modern care. MDVIP uniquely allows these ingredients to come together to create the perfect recipe for good health. My mission is to individualize each patient's treatment plan to meet their personal needs, goals and lifestyle. I will continue to diagnose and treat my patients' acute illnesses with the latest in-office technology. But I will now be able to combine addressing their immediate needs with planning to maintain and improve their health for years to come.
