(1) she LISTENS and goes that extra step to put the pieces together (2) EXCLLENT DIAGNOSTICIAN! (3) She is COMPASSIONATE. So -- what does she do for me? Hard to put a word to it but she has a holistic view, tempered with a lot of common sense, excellent training, great communications, and easy access to all the specialists in Charleston. She does quite a lot.

Dr Mark Handelman is my MDVIP, I regard him not only as my physician but my friend. I also want to say that his nurse Becky Rice is a wonderful compliment to Dr Handelman. She will always follow through when I call with a problem in a timely manner and see that my issue is resolved quickly. I can talk to Dr. Mark, he listens to my side of things and although I don't agree with taking cholesterol regiment, he always makes me aware of my position in a positive way. I recently got called Dr Mark on cold symptoms that I just could not shake; Dr Mark had me come in and followed up with a Z pack that allowed me to go back to work after three days of rest. I am so thankful to know that Dr. Mark is a phone call away, to know that is self assurance that I will be taken care of medically in the most expediant way with total care.

She is a great person. Medically I think she is tops. She is easy to talk with and she is very anxious to help us with medical or personal items. I would recommend her to anyone. She has been easily contacted at time when I needed her when not in her office. I am never anxious when I need to see her.

I have worked with and known Dr. Neilan since 1994 when healthy and 17yrs. with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.He is always there for me in good times and bad. His sense of humor when hospitalized in 1998 was not only uplifting but also life enhancing. To say i cherish his expertise would be an understatement so lets just say he headed the team of doctors day and night can count on him for caring and using his medical experience and generosity to keep me going. Today I placed him with my nephew(attorney) as the Living Will doctor who will continue to look out for me. To say the least, it was the luckiest day in my life when we became wellness partners. May he and his family be blessed with everything beautiful.

Dr. Bruce K Miller is a blessing in my life. I am moving, walking and living my life to the fullest that I can because of him. He listens, is always available and if he isn't than Dr. Florek is. I always know I am getting the best care and it a relief and eliminates fear. If it wasn't for Dr. Miller I probably would not be walking today from a back injury from a car accident. He sent me to the best surgeons and all through the four back surgeries Dr. Miller was by my side, at the hospital and home if necessary. I am very grateful he is an MDVIP because he has time to spend with us as patients. He is a wonderful, fantastic physician as well as a blessing to all of us.

Dr. Gerber listens to me with an open mind. He sees me WHEN I am sick, not days later. He thinks outside of the box and is open to alternative ways to look at a problem. He listens and looks more carefully than many of the other doctors I saw who took care of me by saying I complicated or was a hypochrondiac AND he actually found a number of overlooked, but seemingly simple ailments, that had a signifiant effect on my quality of life. He diagnosed a thyroid function problem, potassium deficiency, sent me to doctors that helped me with undiagnosed allergies, a vein problems in my leg, an ovarian mass, an inflamed gallbladder and even morel One would think that the tests would show these problems but they did not or were overlooked. Some possible reason could be that the tests were not given at the right time to catch the problem, it was not the right test, I was not seen at the most acute time, I not listened to, not retested and so on. As a result of the care and attention I have received from Dr. Gerber and the other health care providers he sent me to, my quality of life and my mental health have greatly improved. I thank Dr. Gerber everyday in my head and I am now telling him in writing: THANK YOU SO MUCH Dr. Gerber!

After my insurance was dropped by the doctor I was seeing several years ago, I went shopping for a doctor. Imagine my delight wen I found Dr. Cram and MDVIP, as well, about which I had read an article in the Wall Street Journal! Dr. Cram is the best primary care physician in my experience! What a gift.... Several years ago he treated me through a particularly unsettling case of pneumonia. Having never dealt with such a thing, he was both reassuring and competent in treating me.

Dr Zito's encouraging, caring and positive attitude has motivated me to change my lifestyle with better choices and regular exercise. I feel better now than I have in years! His 24/7 availability and friendly caring advice and direction has truly changed my life! My decision to go with Dr Zito and MDVIP last year has proven to be one of the best decisions I have ever made!

I saw my MDVIP provider, Dr. James West, this past summer for my annual wellness checkup. He noted my cholesterol and triglyceride levels were running very high and recommended I get a nuclear stress test since I had not had one since 2005. With my schedule and knowing how inconvenient this would be, I pushed back. But Dr. West suggested getting a cardiac calcification scan as a first step. I am so thankful he did. The calcification score was high and convinced me to get the nuclear stress test. I completed the test without any problems, but four days later I received a call from the cardiologist letting me know the test showed some potential blockage that needed to be looked at immediately. Four days after that, I had a stent inserted to correct 80 blockage in my left anterior descending artery ... the one they call the widow maker'. I had no symptoms other than the lab results to indicate the danger I was in. Had it not been for Dr. West knowing me so well and taking the time MDVIP affords for him to spend with me, I am certain I was on the path to a heart attack and possible death. THANK YOU to Dr. West and to MDVIP for allowing him to practice medicine the way it should be!

Dr. Shannon is a doctor that knows his stuff and is heavily vested in the care of his patients.

Dr. Cram is an exceptional doctor - He practices what he recommends - He is the first doctor that I have ever known that goes on walks with his patients - He is very considerate and follows through with all details and information required - With each visit he types out a report covering all aspects so that you can take it with you for your reference - He takes a personal interest in your health and checks back with you to see how your doing - I am in the best health that I ever have been - Thanks to Dr.Cram
