Richard B. Raborn, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am honored to be a third-generation Florida physician. My grandfather and father inspired me to practice as a patient- oriented physician. A long tradition of house calls and personal care seem to be genetic. As a board-certified Internist, MDVIP is enabling me to focus on prevention and provide the highly personalized attention and service you deserve. My wife Barbara Raborn, ARNP-BC, Adult Care, practices with me, so our office has a warm family atomosphere and reflects my philosophy of making every patient our number one priority.

Membership in my MDVIP-affiliated practice, similar to a concierge practice, includes an annual wellness program that provides comprehensive holistic care. I practice primary care internal medicine with particular expertise and interest in cardiovascular health, preventive medicine, nutrition, comprehensive holistic health and challenging medical problems.

I am an attending physician at Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West. It is my belief that is it imperative for a patient to be seen by their own private doctor during hospitalization. My primary care practice serves patients in greater South Palm Beach County, from Boca Raton to Lake Worth, including Delray Beach, Gulfstream, Highland Beach, Manalapan, Ocean Ridge, Boynton Beach and Lantana.
