Dr Bishop has been an outstanding healthcare advocate! His attentiveness to my needs, along with Kim, the doctors nurse , result in a very favorable experience! I have so appreciated their responsiveness to every healthcare situation or question! I think the benefit outweighs the cost. Having said that I would have seen the benefit of this program being more to my advantage if I was in need of more care and had more health issues! However, I will continue to MDVIP program as long as the cost doesn't get out of hand! Dr. Bishop is very proactive in preventative care! His knowledge of formularies establishes a level of comfort in treatment that is praiseworthy! He's an excellent physician!

It is reassuring to know that if a medical need arises, I have timely professional support just a phone call or email message away. Dr. Bishop and staff have provided me with the best of care. I owe then all a heartfelt thank you.

Dr. Bishop's treatment of my family makes a direct impact on my life - because he is also my cankerous husband's physician, making Dr. Bishop a saint in my opinion with all of his patience, knowledge and encouragement to get Gary on the right track again. One notable memory was when my husband obviously didn't pass his stress test - which was very good that it was noted in our physician's office rather than in our large back yard during a mowing session or some other location. Dr. Bishop goes the extra mile and is sincerely highly interested in his patients' health. His career is truly a gift and a calling, rather than simply a profession for income. KUDOS to Dr. Fred Bishop!!!!!

We started going to Dr. Biship in l991. We are so glad to have him taking care of us. As we get older we are so happy to have some one to put our trust in that we can call when we need to. During an ice storm Doyle fell at home. We called Dr. Bishop and he came to the house two days in a row to check on Doyle. Doyle is 85 years old and I am 87 years old. It has been very nice to know we have Dr. Bishop. The MDVIP has been a lot of help.

On my first visit to Dr. Bishop he ask me what was the most important health goal. I told him I would like to get off of as many drugs, or least, to lower the dosage on some. I have been able to lower the dosage of some meds, and able to get off of a couple. I also, like the fact that he is on the cutting edge of medical tests that can predict possible future problems. He is proactive in taking measures to help his patients understand how lifestyle changes can make a big difference in long term health. Dr. Bishop is accessible, a great listener and very quick to respond. His office staff is efficient and friendly from the front office to his nurse.

Dr Bishop has been our primary care physician for thirty plus years. We always received excellent care from Dr Bishop but since joining MDVIP he has had more time to expand upon that excellent care. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and it seemed everything that Dr Bishop prescribed I experienced awful side effects. Unlike many doctors Dr. Bishop did not give up and we have finally found the magic pill that is helping my Cholesterol go down and a pill that with diet and exercise is controlling my blood pressure and weight. With no side effects. He keeps up with all the latest changes in medicine and always shares that knowledge with us. He really does care about our health and well-being. We and MDVIP are very fortunate to have Dr. Bishop as our health care provider. He not only listens, he hears what you are saying, answers all questions honestly and will take the time to go into detail about medical concerns. Last but not least, he inspires confidence I always feel so much better mentally and physically when I leave Dr. Bishops office. I don't know if he realizes what a profound and positive effect he has on his patients lives. We have been extremely thankful for the many years that we have experienced such a great close relationship with Dr. Bishop.

It has made a big difference in my life. I am going to be seen 4 x per year including my annual physical. Important aspects of my health are communicated to me. I do not feel rushed and I know Dr Bishop cares and is always thorough.

I think Dr. Bishop does a wonderful job caring for me. I had a heart attack and a triple bypass last March and Dr. Bishop was by my side every step of the way. I made a wonderful recovery. Dr. Bishop is now working with me on other health problems. i would recommend Dr. Bishop in a New York minute.

I am very pleased with my relationship with Dr. Fred Bishop. He is very attuned to preventative medicine practices and is a good communicator. He responds quickly to any calls or e-mail messages.

Along with excellent health care, Dr. Bishop has the added bonus of a great sense of humor which can be the best medicine of all at times. I appreciate the time he spends answering all questions---even the goofy ones! His patience and medical skills make one glad to be his patient.

When my older internist (the same age as I) retired, he said, Who, in the practice, do you want me to refer you? My answer was, Give me the youngest one. I did not know then that he was also giving me the smartest one....Dr. Fred Bishop. Dr. Bishop has always been a wonderful, caring physician, even before MDVIP. I never hesitated to go with him when he switched to MDVIP. Now, he has time to actually be my friend. My visits are never rushed, and we can talk about things other than my health. How good is that? When he asks me to try a new medication, I am eager to do so, because he always has my best interest at heart. When I lose weight and then gain it back, he doesn't lecture me.....he actually praises me for not gaining ALL of it back. I go in to see him, dreading what he is going to say, and I come out, feeling complimented. That encourages me to try harder to defeat my nemesis, weight. Thank you, Dr. Bishop. You are a wonderful physician and a true friend.

It is so good to be able to reach Dr. Bishop at any time I have a question or need to receive help during an illness. Some doctors I have had in the past seemed to resent my asking questions. Not so with Dr. Bishop. He is never in a hurry and is quite at ease when I ask lots of questions. I also appreciate that he does not push me into accepting certain procedures that I am hesitant to submit to. Most of all I appreciate the fact that Dr. Bishop is good at what he does and is extremely knowledgeable in his field.
