Lexington Primary Care Doctor Charles C. Johnson Opens MDVIP-Affiliated Practice
Board-Certified Family Physician Joins MDVIP National Network to Provide More Personalized Care to the Lexington Community
BOCA RATON, Fla. – December 7, 2023 – MDVIP, the market leader in personalized healthcare with a network of over 1,100 physicians nationwide, today announced the opening of a new MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice in Lexington, Kentucky. Charles C. Johnson, D.O., a board-certified family medicine physician, is currently accepting patients who seek a more direct relationship with their primary care doctor.
MDVIP-affiliated physicians offer a solution to the many frustrations that patients can experience with traditional primary care, including long waits to schedule an appointment, rushed visits and difficulty getting all of their concerns addressed. By maintaining a smaller practice, Dr. Johnson is able to dedicate more time with patients to focus on prevention and early detection as well as help manage chronic conditions. Other conveniences include same- or next-day appointments that last an average of 30 minutes and 24/7 physician availability.
“I was inspired to go into medicine by my great aunt, who was an osteopathic physician and strived to treat the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. This whole-person ideal is my goal for every one of my patients,” said Dr. Johnson. “In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, we have more time to have deeper conversations about your health and wellness goals. Knowing your family history and lifestyle factors, together with the comprehensive diagnostic tests that comprise the annual MDVIP Wellness Program, can help us identify and better prevent future issues and contribute to a healthier life.”

For an annual membership fee, patients receive the MDVIP Wellness Program, a comprehensive yearly health assessment that includes advanced diagnostic tests and screenings to give a more complete view of their overall health. Using the results, physicians provide ongoing coaching and tools to help patients make healthier lifestyle choices, prevent disease and achieve their wellness goals.
Other benefits include the MDVIP Connect app and website, which allow patients to communicate with their doctor online, access personal health records and obtain meal plans, workout programs and other healthcare resources. Should an emergent need arise while a patient is traveling, physicians can help arrange care with a local hospital, pharmacy or doctor, which may include another MDVIP affiliate.
Proven Health Outcomes
MDVIP is at the forefront of healthcare research, with 11 studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals. Findings demonstrate better health outcomes among patients in MDVIP-affiliated practices compared to those in traditional primary care practices, including:
- 79% fewer hospitalizations for Medicare patients, equating to $600 million savings in one year
- 72% fewer hospitalizations for commercially insured patients
- 40% more patients identified at risk for cardiovascular disease using advanced testing
