Cardiologist and Internist Sam Setareh, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.C., Welcomes New Patients to His Practice at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Office Towers
LOS ANGELES and BOCA RATON, Fla. – February 14, 2024 – 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 internal medicine practice in Los Angeles. Sam Setareh, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.C., is currently accepting patients who want a more direct relationship with their primary care physician. Dr. Setareh brings an impressive and diversified background to MDVIP, including four board certifications in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, Nuclear Cardiology and Echocardiology, and he is an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.  Dr. Setareh serves as a member of multiple committees on the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association and as a founding member of the editorial board of The Journal of Scientific Innovation in Medicine.
Dr. Setareh was also recently named to the Forbes Health Advisory Board, a panel of board-certified, experienced clinicians and practitioners who review articles, advise on content and support Forbes Health’s mission to help consumers make smarter, simpler and less stressful wellness decisions.
“As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, my mission is to help empower patients to take better control of their health through preventive medicine and highly individualized care,” said Dr. Setareh, who has subspecialties in preventive cardiology, sports cardiology and advanced cardiovascular imaging. “My practice enables me to build a strong partnership with patients, utilizing comprehensive screenings, appropriate treatments and customized wellness planning aimed at helping them prevent or slow the progression of chronic conditions through every stage of life.”
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 their concerns addressed. By maintaining a smaller practice, Dr. Setareh 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.
Personalized Care
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 the patient’s 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
