D. Stephen Carson, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The MDVIP Program allows me the opportunity to care for patients in a way to promote good health and happiness for my patients. My focus on preventive medicine offers patient’s guidance in lifestyle modification with an emphasis on diet, exercise and disease management. Sufficient time spent with your physician is so important in maintaining a comfortable doctor-patient relationship and is first priority in my practice. I love caring for people, and MDVIP provides the resources to make this possible.
