Preeminent Cardiologists Accepting New Patients, Expand MDVIP Primary Care Services in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES and BOCA RATON, Fla. – September 14, 2023 – MDVIP, the market leader in personalized healthcare with a network of over 1,100 primary care physicians nationwide, today announced that two MDVIP-affiliated doctors, Sam Setareh, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.C., and David M. Filsoof, M.D., have acquired the practice of esteemed Los Angeles cardiologist Ivor L. Geft, M.D., who retired after 43 years of clinical service in the community.

Drs. Setareh and Filsoof are currently accepting new patients in their practice, which is located at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Office Towers in Los Angeles. Both physicians are double board-certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, and in addition to the full spectrum of cardiology services, provide comprehensive preventive care as affiliates of the MDVIP primary care network.

“Dr. Ivor Geft has been an integral part of the L.A. medical community whose distinguished career spans over four decades at Cedars-Sinai’s leading cardiology program,” said Dr. Setareh. “I am excited to partner with Dr. David Filsoof in providing the compassionate and state-of-the-art cardiovascular care that the practice is known for.”

“We are honored and grateful that Dr. Ivor Geft has entrusted us to continue his legacy of helping patients improve their health and their lives,” said Dr. Filsoof. “The MDVIP primary care model, which prioritizes heart health, is a natural complement to the proactive, prevention-based approach of our practice.”

Under the MDVIP program, doctors maintain a smaller practice, allowing them to spend more time with patients to focus on disease prevention and early detection, as well as help manage chronic conditions. Patient benefits include same- or next-day appointments, extended visits that last an average of 30 minutes and 24/7 physician availability via cell phone.
