Laraine Field is not only a MAGNIFICENT doctor, but also is a MAGNIFICENT human being--one of the most caring, concerned people I have ever known in my 62 years of existence. She has devoted countless hours to assuring that I remain in good health, and has ALWAYS made herself available when I have had health issues big or small--to include times when the office was closed. She is the epitome of a professional and yet she is a very dear friend--someone whom I trust without fail. She has played a significant role in my life and the success that I've had, and I will remain eternally grateful for her competence, kindness, and concern.

I have been a patient of Dr. Field for over 20 years. I love this woman as s doctor and a friend. She always takes the time to explain my test results and to recommend solutions and cjallenges for improving my health. Additionally, she never forgets to inquire about my family and is generous in sharing her own family stories. Perhaps not many people can say they enjoy going to the doctor, but, because of Dr. Field, I look forward to it.

I have been a patient of Dr. Laraine Field for many years, and even though I initially resisted, I am so pleased that she made the move to MDVIP and so did I. The fact that I've come along for the ride to be more proactive about my personal health choices is in no small measure to her skill as my primary physician. I'm by far not her best patient, but am much better now in watching out for the self-defeating health issues I previously made excuses for.

Dr. Laraine Field is an exceptional doctor and a lovely person! She has been my doctor for a long time. I am so lucky I found her. I developed asthma in middle age. She has helped me understand it. She and her staff are quite responsive to my frequent need for assistance. They are all kind and very competent. She treats you as an equal, with respect and dignity. She has a right to be more stern with me, but she never is. She gives 110 every day. I think she is the greatest! I am a widow with no extra money, and she is worth every penny! Thanks, doc!

My wife and I have gone to Dr Field for years- she is such an advocate for her patients. When my wife was in the ICU she would not let the intensivsts or our family give up on her. She is such a fighter for her patients. She takes time with all her patients and makes you feel like you are part of her family. She shares stories of her family with my wife and me to help illustrate a health concept. Her patience is unmatched. She is often calling patients back long after most doctors are home relaxing. We gave permission for her to speak with our children and she keeps them involved in our health care as well. I do not know many doctors who would take the time to do that for a patient. She has helped us remain independent and in our home.

Dr. Field is a wonderful doctor - so knowledgeable, easy to talk to, caring and understanding. What I love is her comprehensive analysis and discussion with me regarding all my health concerns. She explains, in just the right level of detail, what my treatment plan should be and why changes are needed. Because of her patience and desire for excellence, I always leave her office with my many questions answered and satisfied that I am getting excellent care. MD-VIP has made getting an appointment so much easier!

This is a commentary about Dr. Field, not MDVIP Dr. Field is a caring, wonderful physician who is like an old fashioned doctor that those of us who are seniors know what I mean by this term--as will she. We love her. When we have spoken to her for advice, she has caused us to feel comfort in hearing her voice and getting her advice.

As a Type 2 diabetic, I have been a patient of Dr. Field for over 15 years. In my opinion, she is one of a very rare breed of doctors who combines an outstanding professional knowledge with a caring and concerned beside manner. Dr. Field always takes the time to explain all aspects of her treatment from lab results to medication mechanisms to risks. And these explanations are always done in layman's terms so that they are easily understood. In addition, she is extremely personable and readily shares her own experiences so that I am always at ease during my visits. She is always available in an emergency and never fails to respond to a request. I consider my diabetes to have been and continue to be under control in large part because of her treatment regimen. I cannot think of another doctor that I have liked and admired as much as Dr. Field.

Dr. Field is a caring physician who shows real concern for her patient's health and well-being. I believe she keeps abreast of the latest treatments, drugs and technologies in pursuit of the treatments she prescribes. Due to her recommendations I have found other specialists who provide excellent care as well.

Dr.. Field is the best doctor I have had since I was a little girl! She listens to you and then talks with you to help solve to my satisfaction any and all my problems or concerns. One may wait as she is busy with another patient, but that is okay as am sure a patient after me has waited while Dr. Field is helping me with my problems and questions. There are simply not many doctors like her around. She has always referred me to a great doctor when needed.

Dr. Field has been my physician since I moved to the DC area 8 years ago. She is a terrific person and caring doctor. She truly listens to her patients which is key in making accurate diagnoses. I learned this firsthand 2 years ago when I experienced a major illness. Although I had left the practice for a short while due to practicalities of location, I returned as I grew sicker and 7 specialists could not find an accurate diagnosis. Although her practice was full, she took me back and determined what was wrong with me during the first visit (based on what she knew of my family history and my symptoms). She worked with other specialists to confirm the diagnosis and get me on the right treatment protocol. And I knew I was in good hands when I returned, because I felt like I had a doctor who really cared. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else because I know I can count on Dr. Field

Dr. Field is a superb doctor. She literally saved my life when I first began seeing her. I had no prior symptoms whatsoever of heart problems even though my previous doctor(s) had been noticing an abnormal spike in my EKG readings for several years. Dr. Field refused to ignore the indicator and had me take several tests that showed 90-100 percent blockage in four of my heart arteries. I had a successful by-pass operation and have been on medications since. She not only keeps a close eye on my health, but takes the time to get to know me. Dr. Laraine Field is tops. I cannot possibly express my appreciation for her competency and care. Five stars.
