Jay S. Meyerowitz, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. I have been in private practice for over 27 years in Teaneck, New Jersey. My practice philosophy centers around helping patients to create optimal health for themselves and their families. The foundation of this philosophy is in prevention, wellness, health coaching and education. As your physician, I will partner with you to create a personalized healthcare plan that addresses your current health care needs and develops a comprehensive plan to prevent new illnesses.

MDVIP's personalized wellness program is sometimes referred to as concierge medicine. We empower patients to reach their health and wellness goals through in depth knowledge, expertise and one-on-one coaching with a Board Certified Internist and Board Certified Geriatrician.

Traditional medicine has become mainly reactionary, putting out fires and treating problems as they arise. My philosophy is to treat the root cause of the illness! In that light, my other areas of interest include Obesity and Weight Management. By helping patients achieve a healthy weight, we can significantly improve, or potentially eliminate, many common medical illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, reflux, heart disease, snoring and sleep apnea, arthritis and fatigue.
