Philip C. Heinegg, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a family medicine physician with a lifelong interest in preventive medicine and holistic care. Through my participation in MDVIP’s unique program of personalized healthcare, sometimes referred to as concierge care, I have been able to take the time needed to help my patients identify and achieve their goals in order to enjoy improved health. My education and experience have shown me that true healing requires a genuine doctor-patient relationship based on mutual understanding and trust. My patients and I also have the time to focus on more than their immediate needs and chronic conditions; we emphasize prevention and wellness and address key areas, like cardiovascular health, hypertension, diabetes prevention, nutrition, fitness and emotional well-being.

I have served the Larchmont, Westchester County community for over 28 years. In my MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice, patients can schedule same-day appointments, and I can make house calls for those who cannot get to my office. I am affiliated with Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut and Montefiore New Rochelle in New York. I am fluent in English, French and Spanish with working knowledge of Italian and German. I look forward to working with you and for you.
