What patients in the MDVIP network are saying about their primary care doctor:
General Practitioner for a Lifetime – Patrick, patient of Dr. Kevin M. Gil in Maryland
“Dr. Gil knows my wife and I both personally as well as medically through the various historical episodes and has supported us in our most critical moments… [He] is an amazing communicator and is always available for consultation and discussion. I truly see him as part of our family! We are very fortunate to have him and his practice in our lives and appreciate his dedication and service to the community.”
Doctor Willing to Listen – Danny, patient of Dr. Scarlet Benson in Florida
“Over the past few years, I have been on, at times, a very frustrating journey to find a doctor willing to listen to me, to understand my particular situation, and be prepared to justify and discuss their treatment choices… So, to find a gem of a person like Dr. Scarlet Benson at MDVIP in Fort Lauderdale has been a total game changer for me.”
Caring, Committed and Kind – Tinuke, patient of Dr. Peter M. Gottesfeld in New York
“He stopped and said that was worthy of acknowledging all of my feelings… I knew then that this was the doctor for me. I shared things with him even my previous doctor did not know. He is a knowledgeable, kind, caring and smart individual. On National Doctors’ Day, I want to honor and acknowledge Dr. G for being the wonderful human that he is.”
Dr. Herman: My Vote for MDVIP ‘M.V.P.’ – William, patient of Dr. Jeffrey Herman in Michigan
“He has been a powerful force in my corner for years. Pandemic? Journey from middle age to senior? Dr. Herman has been there to care, educate and motivate. Last October I was able to complete a half marathon with my scholarship athlete daughter... Under [his] care, I hope to do many more.”
Personalized Care, Real Relationship
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, doctors are 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.
Proven Health Outcomes
Eleven studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals 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
