Hello everyoneI did not know what an MDVIP doctor is, until recently. My doctor is Dr Joel Silverman, he now spends more time with me when I see him in this office. Let me ask you, have you ever had a doctor visit you at your home? I have because of a health issue I was having. Has your doctor ever arranged a cooking demo so you could learn healthier ways of eating? I have. On Wednesday, June 5th doctor Joel Silverman invited his patients to attend a cooking Demo at Sur La Table in Mizner Park. I learned a lot and I watched Chef Dr Joel Silverman make yummy breakfast concoctions. How about cooking breakfast for the next morning's breakfast in a crock-pot? Including information about comparing healthy and non-healthy foods. It was a most enjoyable learning experience about eating healthier and how to lose weight. The next cooking Demo is for LunchI am ready. Want to be my guest and come with me next time ? I would love for you to come and meet my MDVIP doctor, everyone should have this experience with their doctor!

I couldn't walk without two canes and was getting depressed about my condition. With Dr. Hyatt's help and recommendations I am a new person. I feel physically and mentally better....a renewed person. Best in 30 years. Thanks Glen!

Dr. Charles Hasbrook ,Indianapolis, is the physician everyone needs in his life. Our 25 year-old daughter Ashley was diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma in 2008. Dr. Hasbrook personally directed her care from the very beginning sending her to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. He then stayed in close contact with Ashley's surgeons and oncologists to facilitate her treatment. Always available for any questions or to clarify procedures, he emotionally helped guide her through the many treatments and tough surgeries in both NYC and Indianapolis, as well as treatments in Cincinnati, Louisville and Chicago. During one scheduled surgery at NYC's Sloan-Kettering, Dr. Hasbrook made a surprise visit....the look on Ashley's face was worth a thousand words. He made such a difference in her treatment, recovery and outlook always encouraging, always there for her. He was the one doctor who was always available to see her, following-up by calling or texting, and making several visits to our home when Ashley was too weak for an office visit....making the time she had left in this world brighter. When Dr. Hasbrook told us he was joining MDVIP, it was Ashley who said, what a plus for them...he's the doctor everybody needs! Ashley lost her battle Oct. 24, 2011....she had written her own tribute to Dr. Hasbrook which I will send to MDVIP. Our family has been blessed to have been in Dr. Hasbrook's care for 30 years. He was there the day Ashley was born and with us the day she died. His dedication was instrumental in guiding us through Ashley's treatments and care physically, mentally, and emotionally. He continues to be the doctor my husband Kent and I turn to for all of our medical needs and is now leading us emotionally through the many tears and stages of grieving for our precious Ashley. Dr. Hasbrook is truly part of our family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lee's since 1982. In that period of time he has diagnosed and advised on treatment of Graves disease, prostate cancer, and dumping syndrome. He knows my health condition unlike anyone else and recommends healthier living habits. I find it well worth the additional investment to have the comfort of knowing that he is always there for my health needs. In addition to being an exceptional physcian, I consider him a fine person and good friend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Weiss for many years. I am presently 81 years old and at the time of this writing, feel in better health than I have for years. I attribute this fact to the excellent medical care I have received from Dr. Weiss. I had breast cancer in 1985 with a left breast mastectomy. I had negative mammograms during the following years. In 2001, at the time of my annual exam with Dr. Weiss, he insisted that a have an FSC, due to my previous cancer history. I had resisted doing this for several years and, when he became adamant, I did the necessary prep, although I was not having any symptoms. As he preformed the FSC, Dr. Weiss immediately identified that I had a large cancerous appearing lesion in my colon. Although he had a waiting room filled with patients, he took the time to contact my daughter and son-in-law, who came to his office. There he told them of my condition and explained his plan of treatment. He then immediately contacted a gastroenterologist, who did a full colonoscopy that afternoon, which confirmed Dr. Weiss' diagnosis. Two days later, I had a colon resection, after which the pathology report revealed a Stage IV colon cancer. I was then scheduled with West Clinic for a series of chemotherapy with Dr. Tauer, oncologist. After a few treatments, I was becoming increasingly more nauseated and subsequent radiology and boodwork testing revealed that I was cancer free. I have had subsequent colonoscopies as recommended these past 12 years and have had no further evidence of cancer. Dr. Weiss has been my constant friend and physician during all this time. I am confident that I owe my life to him and feel that without his urging, I would not be alive today. God bless him!

Dr. Devon is a concerned and knowledgeable physician. I am always comfortable discussing any and all matters with him and know I will receive a learned and thoughtful response. He has encouraged me to maintain my healthy lifestyle; diet and exercise, and his manner is friendly and upbeat. The office/staff is wonderful.

I had a genetic profile ordered by Dr. Smith MDVIP-affiliated physician in 2011. It was discovered that I was heterozygous for Factor V Leiden, which means I have an increased risk for blood clots. In looking at this with my physician, we discussed whether I should be taking Evista for strengthening my bones, since it may increase my risk for blood clots. Dr. Smith consulted with a hematologist colleague, and it was suggested that I might be a candidate for the Reclast infusion rather than Evista which also gives protection against osteoporosis. Within a few days I had an appointment with the hematologist, and it was determined that I met the criteria for the procedure. The following week I had my first Reclast infusion. So within the time of our office visit to go over the diagnostic tests to the time of my infusion took less than a month. This option may not have been available to me if my Dr. Smith wasn't able to spend the time working with me. Through the regular scans Ive had done, its been shown that my bone density has improved. In a usual medical practice, my risk factor probably would not have been discovered; and if so, it would have taken months to have my first treatment.

Dr. Taylor's practice--including Laurie the Office Manager and Theresa the Nurse Practitioner, exposed me to how caring and thoughtful professionals could help me reach a better state of health. When I first entered the Practice I was unhealthy--and perhaps with a bit of middle aged malaise. Dr. Taylor and staff talked to me the way gifted athletic coaches talk to athletes. They inspired ME to be a big part of becoming more healthy--and they coached me how to get there. I never felt lectured or talked down to; I was treated like I mattered and they wanted to help. They put so much work into my care, that even when I was tempted, I resisted bad living habits because, if nothing else I didn't want to let them down. I know that sounds silly, but it's nice to have folks rooting for you that way. When I had a couple of respiratory challenges with asthma, allergies, and the flu, that office was on it--keeping me from getting worse--as I had always done before. They were like the landing at Normandy. I was given the proper medications and instructions to nip something in the bud before it worsened. I can't say enough how much it means just to feel like there's time to ask another question..or two..or three. Dr. Taylor would often say things like, Why didn't you call? That's why we're here. They're a great group. I can't rave enough.

I have known Dr. Berg for many years. He gives each patient the most caring and compassionate treatment. I sleep better at night, knowing that he is there for me. You could not want more from a doctor, and a friend. His patients are very fortunate to know him.

I've been a patient of Dr. Randolph for approximately ten years. She is the best physician I've ever had or encountered in my life (and that includes 23 years in the Army). In addition to being a true professional, Dr. Randolph is a caring, compassionate, interested person. I cannot imagine anyone else better. Both my wife and I are blessed to have her as our internist and primary care doctor.
