Les Nowitz, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have seen how the practice of medicine has changed over the course of 40 years as more and more care is being dictated not by the doctors, but by insurance companies and various government agencies.  Many times, this is not the type of care that a great doctor wants to provide.  With MDVIP, I have the opportunity to provide timely, extended visits and focus more on wellness.  Please join me along this new journey of personalized care.
