Jennifer Bennett, who works for MDVIP affiliate Dr. John Calado in Rochester Hills, MI, is an MDVIP Ambassador for going above and beyond the call of duty and making her patients feel welcome, valued and loved.

"The two people who inspire me the most are my parents. They have a long- standing marriage that has withstood many storms. Not only have they been there for each other, but they have supported me through the best and worst of times. No matter what the scenario, or how many tears I have shed, I always came through with a smile on my face. Their unyielding devotion has given me the confidence to be an excellent student, employee and parent. My parents have a thirst for knowledge and instilled in me the value of lifelong learning and perseverance while always being true to myself. These lessons and their example has been the foundation for a moral compass that has served me well. I am forever grateful to them.” --Jennifer Bennett

Noteworthy Nominations:

This past weekend, we had an issue at the office that we were unable to solve remotely, Jen drove 30 min from her house to fix the issue, so our patients would not be inconvenienced. She solved the issue. Without her dedication to the practice we would come up short. She is truly a person who puts the practice first.

Jen started working with a local church group who makes prayer blankets. The office gives each patient hospitalized a prayer blanket to let them know they are thought of. Holidays she has worked with staff to make sure that each of our patients feels special, we have given flowers on Mother’s Day, candy on Father’s Day, suckers for younger kids who attend family appointments, and Christmas gifts.

This last month I watched her fight with an insurance company for a medication that I felt was in the best interest of my patient. She went through prior authorization process, 3 appeal letters and ultimately, she won the appeal and the patient is now covered on the medication. Above and beyond, taking 2 -3 months to get the best medication for our patients.

I have watched Jen develop such great relationships with our members she is able to get information out of them that may have otherwise been missed. She was able to stop a member from having dental work that was scheduled after he was diagnosed with a lung bacterial infection. The question was never asked if he had a dental procedure, so he assumed it was fine to proceed. She was listening to his story and was able to recognize it and contacted me and we were able to stop him from what could have been a devastating event.

About the Physician
John B. Calado, DO, FACOI

My own directive as your personal doctor is to partner with you to help improve your understanding of your health, improve your quality of life and/or function and decrease your dependence on medication when possible. It is my goal to keep patients out of the hospital and to minimize emergency room and urgent care visits through proactive, individualized care. As your advocate, I can consult with insurance companies, recommend specific tests and screenings and liaise with your specialists. I am affiliated with William Beaumont Hospital – Troy Campus and can support your care and release in the event of hospitalization. I also make home visits on a case-by-case basis. 

I strongly believe the more developed your understanding of your health, the better equipped you are to live the healthy, active life you deserve. The MDVIP model allows me the time to explain your test results and health conditions in detail. I will work with you at each step to help you make informed decisions toward achieving your goals – whether it’s participating in sports at a competitive level, improving lost physical function, reducing medications or maintaining the independence that can be threatened as we age. And for the individuals who have a busy life working, same-day or next-day appointments and the ability to contact me after hours can minimize your time away from work and, in some cases, may help expedite your recovery. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. 

As one of the few internal medicine doctors in the Detroit metro area offering this personalized healthcare approach I provide a level of care that can help improve your health and quality of life. My practice is located in Troy, Michigan, and serves patients from Novi to Port Huron and as far north as Flint down to Detroit, including Troy, Rochester, Shelby, Birmingham, Oakland, Bloomfield, Sterling Heights, Warren, Royal Oak, Ferndale, Chesterfield and Clinton Township. We focus on internal medicine and preventive care in addition to all aspects of primary care.
