Joseph M. Sack, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal, as a board certified family physician over the last 28 years, has been to provide personalized healthcare for my patients. My affiliation with MDVIP allows me to have more time to foster patient-centered, comprehensive healthcare that goes beyond acute illness management and promotes a healthy lifestyle and encourages disease prevention.

After graduating from the St. Francis residency program, I have maintained privileges at Kansas Medical Center, Health Corporation of America (HCA) Wesley, Select Specialty Hospital and Via Christi Hospital. Of the six hospital campuses, I am currently admitting only at Select Specialty Hospital, but maintain open access to the hospitalist at all the other campuses. Since my early training, I’ve had a special interest in specific areas of disease prevention and management which include hypertension, diabetes and asthma. Although I am no longer actively serving as a medical director, I have been an advocate of hospice services most of my career.

Combining my years of experience with the published success of MDVIP, I am excited to continue wonderful patient relationships by providing advanced services in the most personal way possible.
