After the implementation of our new federal health care plan I had three doctors leave practice and was frustrated that I might not find another new doctor that would stay in practice long enough that we could build a relationship that was comfortable. And I hated the idea that I was becoming part of the mass of people becoming a number in our new efficient system. In my area the big one was Summa. Seemed I couldn't get away from it and felt there was no longer any privacy. I had heard rumors about concierge doctors but had assumed they would be an expensive luxury. I was thrilled that I found it to be very affordable and that I loved Dr. Phillips! She really has made me feel comfortable, cared for and safe. We are Ohio/Florida residents and when I came south this year I was happy to know that if I needed health care while I was here I wouldn't need to go to the local emergency or Urgent Care but that Dr. Phillips could find me care at a local office using the MDVIP group. What a great peace of mind that gives me. And she texts!! I had a minor issue when I headed south and being able to text a picture of the progress and get an almost immediate response was awesome! I am confident that Dr. Phillips will be there when I am in need of care and I will no longer have to doctor shop every year. A great sense of relief!

Dr Malinow is a wonderful doctor. He is caring, there when needed, answers all calls or calls back within fifteen minutes. When my husband was in the hospital he was there and very concerned. It was on a Sunday when I had to call him, told him the problem and directed us to the hospital right away.

Dr. Lou Malinow is truly a great primary personal physician. He has advised me to a better lifestyle, taken an aggressive approach to treatments when needed. He evaluates my health in a total body and mind concept vs just treating symptoms. My annual health scores continue to improve with the goal being that I should be in the upper quality tier. He is accessible and quick to respond. He uses technology and communications to better his relationship and care for me as his patient.

I read recently that two characteristics need to be present in order for a patient to trust his/her doctor - competence and warmth. Dr. Malinow demonstrates these and other commendable qualities consistently. He is accessible, gives his undivided attention during office visits, is knowledgeable about current trends and treatment modalities in medicine and has an excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Malinow is always patient and takes the time to answer all my questions. I never have to wait long to see him. And he follows up to make sure I'm okay.

I have been a patient of Dr Khulusi for many years. He is by far one of the most knowledgeable,caring physicians I have ever met. His phenomenal reputation and love of his patients caused it to be very difficult to get an appointment with a long wait however people waited hours to see him. When he went MDVIP I was concerned if it would really make a difference. Well, WOW! I now have him virtually as my private physician. Worth every penny and more. I strongly recommend MDVIP if the physician is world class like Dr Khulusi.

I have been a patient of Dr. Eckert, virtually since the onset of her practice. I have found her to be an excellent diagnostician, extremely caring and a pleasure to consult. The onset of her concierge practice makes her more readily available and able to spend more time with each patient.

Switching my health care to Dr. Melodie Phillips' MDVIP practice was one of the smartest things I've ever done. My previous doctor's practice had been acquired by a mega hospital system and I, like all the other patients, had become a number as the doctors became inaccessible to us, and appointments (which were difficult to get) were strictly limited to 15 minutes. Because I have several chronic health problems, I had begun to feel that my concerns were not receiving adequate attention; that things were being missed. With Dr. Phillips, it's a completely different experience. It is never a problem to get an appointment in a timely manner - she and her staff do all they can to get me in. They are always welcoming, friendly, and caring, and extremely professional. Dr. Phillips never makes me feel rushed in an appointment. She is an excellent listener, and her responses always reflect her thoughtful and analytical approach. She meticulously chronicles the content of each appointment. The thing I especially love about her is that she takes a very proactive, holistic approach to my health - issues aren't dealt with out of context with other aspects of my health. I feel that Dr. Phillips cares about me as a person, and that my health is a top priority for her. The peace of mind that I now have regarding my health care is priceless.

A friend of mine informed me of MDVIP, as I was so dissatisfied with the treatment I had been receiving from my then primary physician. I made an appointment to meet Dr. Laub, and I immediately knew that I wanted him as my new primary. It was one of the best decisions that I've ever made. I am so grateful to have found a physician who is a great diagnostician AND a caring person!

I have a personal relationship with my Doctor and his staff. They know who I am when I call. When my husband had his heart attack while away from home, I had my doctor's cell phone number and reached him immediately. While the ER doctor was working with my husband, I was able to pass my cell phone to him so that he could talk to our doctor. Records were sent to the hospital were were in immediately.

I would like to share a story about my doctor and MDVIP. I have always valued Dr. Ruxin's availability and knowledge, but on a recent trip to Ireland I fully realized how lucky I am to have access to my doctor when I need him. Being a type one diabetic has always meant travel can be difficult, but on this trip I got very ill with a stomach virus. Dr. Ruxin worked with me and my wife to figure out insulin intake, took calls at late hours, responded to texts within minutes, and worked with a local doctor at midnight to help get me through. Words can not express my extreme gratitude.

I am a breast cancer survivor and my physician, Dr. Wolf became a star at last night's Texan game. First, he got his picture on the scoreboard. After people saw the picture on the scoreboard, my phone started buzzing with people saying Dr. Wolf saved my father-in-law who had lung cancer and Dr. Wolf found it. Dr. Wolf is my special angel because he has been by my side. I've been a patient since 1984 - pleased about him being an MDVIP doctor - never had any time of his own. He got more family time and at the same time the patients that care about their health and want to work with him chose this way to go. I discovered my own breast cancer. It was a freak thing - February 2, 2015 - Super Bowl Sunday. There were 75 people coming over and I didnt want to postpone the Super Bowl party. So, I called Dr. Wolf, who reminded me that I also need to get my physical. My nipple had retracted into my body and I needed immediate surgery. Dr. Wolf booked everything: mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy - more rapid. Dr. Wolf pushed everyone so I could get all of the testing done within a week. The doctor that did a biopsy hugged my neck. As I got into my car, I started crying to my husband. I called Dr. Wolf and he found the best surgeon for that Monday. Even surgeon wondered, How much pull do you have with this man? I got my surgery scheduled right away March 30. It was a fast moving surgery. At first, I just planned on having surgery for my right breast and right lymph nodes. However, for peace of mind, I decided to have surgery on the left breast, for a mirrored effect. I am still here today. I have chemo every week; six more and then a PET Scan to make sure its all gone. So far, the first PET Scan didnt find anything. If not for Dr. Wolf, where would I be right now? I told him that Now, Im going to depend on you for a lot of things. He said I will, but you need to take it one day at a time. When I get bad thoughts and hear other peoples stories that are different, I think of what he told me one day at a time. Hes just been an angel. He was at the hospital the day of the surgery. G-d works in mysterious ways. A year before I got sick, I saw a commercial on TV for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. A lot of my friends were doing things for cancer even though they didnt have it. For instance, my friends decided to help with an American Cancer Society fundraiser. They came in first place as far as donations and they only started raising funds two weeks before the event. They asked who the survivor was in the group of 17. None of them had it, but that was last year. This year, 3 out of the 30 who had volunteered had breast cancer. One in five gets breast cancer. At the event, I was asked to speak at the podium. I told them my story and about Dr. Wolf and how he was so determined to get me well and how he was beside me the whole way. My speech left such an impression. The Texans wanted five survivors to cheer at the game and I was chosen as one of the five. If I start to get nervous, I think about his calming voice and to take just one day at a time. Husbands been so sick last three to four years. I put my health on the back burner. Dr. Wolf compares the body to a car, if youre going to drive it until the wheels fall off then this is not the right practice for you. I've helped eight women now. G-d was preparing me for this. Women need to get their mammograms. I don't care if you had it last year. Even if the mammogram is clear. Now I have a sisterhood. Last Christmas was good, I want to make sure I'm here for the next Christmas and the next and the next. I know it can come back, but at least I can do everything I can to not let it come back.
