I have been patient of Dr. Karings since 1997. When he told me about the MDVIP program I decided to try it because I did not want to change physicians. I have been thrilled with the program. I have contacted Dr. Karing while on vacation and had an immediate response. He has diagnosed a current problem I have as a result of the very thorough yearly physical. Three years ago I was diagnosed with celiac disease. It has been a life altering experience but Dr. Karing has worked with my gastrologist and I am enjoying good health. On one occasion when my gastrologist was unavailable and the on-call specialist was unresponsive I contacted Dr. Karing and he responded immediately. Not only that, it was a Friday night and on Monday morning Dr. Karing called to check on me and see if I needed to come in. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for an appointment. He is very proactive in checking medications and his staff (Dana) is exceptional. In the current age of Obamacare and changes in medical practices I thank God for Dr. Karing and for the MDVIP program. He and his staff are a blessing.

I was really ill over the holidays and both times I contacted Dr. Karing, he responded immediately and prescribed the medicine I needed. In one case he was on vacation skiing and another time he had me come to his office immediately without hesitation so he could treat me. I feel very special to have someone who cares about his patients so much. He is helping his patients by walking with them on Saturdays and going to food markets and sharing information about healthy food we should eat to stay healthy. I feel Blessed to have MDVIP and Dr. Karing and his staff in my life.

Doctor Michael Karing is a fabulous Doc!!! He knows so much about how meds work with one another. He also has a proven track record with my family for not pulling any punches with the truth!! Just having him, along with MDVIP, gives me the peace of mind knowing my family is getting the best health care in America!!

Dr. Karing, Just want to say thank you for what you do for us. Having more time to visit with you since MDVIP has started is a plus. Also, knowing we can call you, if needed, and you are readily available gives us a more secure feeling. And, we enjoy the walk times. Watching the Olympics over the past few days made me think--if they gave gold medals for physicians, you would deserve one. We thank God for you and pray blessings for you and your family.

Dear Dr. Karing, You have been the most caring physician I have ever had! First, as my assigned Doctor in the Senior Clinic, then as I transferred to the NETIMA Group , and now with MDVIP. The Lord must have had His hand in all of this. It was not easy to leave my stamping grounds in Watkins Glen, NY, and find myself without the support of the medical team I had been relying on for many years. My first question to you was this: Would you continue to prescribe my drugs for my Bi-Polar diagnosis rather than send me to a psychiatrist since I had been stabilized for many years? When you assured me you would be willing to do that, I knew I was working with not only a Doctor but a friend, also. Even with the constraints of the Medicare System, you spent valuable time maintaining my health and sending me to specialists as needed. A great example was the herbal remedy you found for my neuropathy pain when my insurance company would no longer pay for my medication! I listened to you regarding the results of my first Wellness Exam. Some very simple diet changes reduced my glucose to normal range and I lost 13 lbs. in 9 months and I am no longer over-weight! I participate in a Senior Exercise Program called Move It or Lose It on a daily basis. My husband and I are able to visit the local CVS Pharmacy, pick up my medications and shop for sundries with the use of my walker for balance. I am very fortunate to be one of your many patients and I hope you have found your 1st year working under MDVIP the medical practice you had always envisioned.

We have so much confidence in Dr. Michael Karing, MD that we are willing to pay the extra cost in order to keep him. Having the instant answers to questions, no wait time keeps from exposing us to other illnesses, having the time to discuss concerns without feeling you are in the way, all of these things make our experience with MDVIP different that at any other time in our medical history. We believe that his choice to enter this program shows his genuine concern for his patients.

First off the Dr's name is Karing?? That should say it all. I've been a patient since 1994. He is more than a Dr He is a life coach. Yes! I see him when I'm sick and need care, but its more than that. The man spends his free time on a Saturday hosting walks for his patience and offers healthy grocery shopping talks at a local store. Most Dr's now days run in poke, squeeze and leave. They don't know you or care to. I never have felt that way with this Dr. Now that he is with MDVIP, the experience is more relaxed for him and for me. I consider Dr. Karing more than just my Dr. he is also a friend. Most people won't say that about a Dr.

the be. Needless, to say, I feel I haver, Karing has been my Physician for over 15 yrs. I feel very secure in my daily life knowing Dr. Karing is only a phone call away. He knows me personally and my health history and addresses all my health problems with great competence. He is a great asset to the MDVIP family. I feel I have the best Dr, and can't imagine not having Dr. Karing and his terrific assistant Dana taking care of me. Thank you for letting me share with you and show my appreciation to him.
