Medical Director

Dr. Bernard Kaminetsky, MD

A cofounder of MDVIP and the second physician to open an MDVIP-affiliated practice, Dr. Kaminetsky served eight years as an MDVIP affiliate. He was the first to participate in MDVIP’s physician retirement program when he left clinical practice in 2008 to become the company’s first medical director. “All the problems physicians face today were present when we started two decades ago: Doctors don’t have enough time with patients to take care of anything more than chronic problems or acute exacrbations thereof, there’s little focus on wellness and prevention, and reimbursements are going down while doctors work harder and harder.” ...  See More
