My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always believed that to be a good coach to others, you have to play the game yourself. This is especially true in medicine. In order to encourage my patients to improve their health by eating correctly and exercising regularly, I must also strive to do so in my own life. 

My passion, as your personal family physician, is to have that same team approach. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge medicine practice, I can bring my expertise (whether it is in treating your hypertension, diabetes or helping you lose weight) to the table. I am excited to not only focus on helping you stay healthy, but most definitely to go the extra mile toward improving your health if you do fall ill.

I have been blessed to work for more than 15 years in our North County district, and thus have established a great working relationship with nearby specialists. Furthermore, as the only board-certified family practice physician who manages my own patients’ treatment at our local Twin Cities Community Hospital, I am a strong believer in continuity of care. Having your own physician, who knows you and your medical history, manage any needed hospital treatment could make all the difference. I’ve always wanted to be a family doctor. Because I get to play a role in all aspects of my patients’ health, I have the privilege of fostering a personal relationship with each patient and focus on preventive care.

Dr. Breytenbach, I certainly thank our Lord for not only your knowledge but you compassion and FRIENDSHIP. I feel like a special family member each time I come in for a visit. With my health issues I thank God I have such a great team as you and Dr. Prier. You both have an awesome staff of fun, loving, caring people.
You all are just fun to hang with!

from Gayle & Leo in CA March 10, 2018 for Hendrik F. Breytenbach, MD

Joining the MDVIP practice of Dr. Breytenbach was the best decision. Our long time doctor had retired and finding a new doctor in our area was a challenge. We both had seen Dr. Breytenbach before as he was the partner of our former doctor. The lab work is extensive and he takes the time with you to explain in detail the results. Our health and well being is very important and being in an… See more

Dr. Breytenbach has been my doctor since he began his practice and has been a wise, supportive health guide all that time. The opportunity to continue as his patient in this special practice has has been excellent to guide me through some challenging issues in recent times. Both my husband Ken who is also a member and I have greatly appreciated his wisdom and treatment protocols for each us… See more

Dr. Breytenbach's attention to my healthy status has been noteworthy to many, even as I'm lucky to have had and continue to have very good health. I'm a farmer in the wine country of California and in a preventative measure Dr Breytenbach suggested a reduction of wine consumption with a reasonable and creative approach. Community friends and family now known the value of the… See more

from Gary in CA March 2, 2018 for Hendrik F. Breytenbach, MD

There is a black and white contrast between Dr. Bretenbach and other physicians that I have had over many decades. I live in remote location and the ability to contact him by text messaging or telephone and get a quick response is therapeutic in itself. He responds well within an hour, and surprisingly, sometimes within minutes to my call - even after hours. Office visits are complete and… See more

I have been under Dr Breytenbachs care for over 20 years. He also was the primary physician for my son who required complicated medical coordination with other specialty doctors and hospitals. I truly feel he believes medicine is a calling and entered into this field to serve and succor his fellow man. He cares, he does not rush, he listens, he provokes important discussions and promotes goal… See more

from Raymond in CA March 1, 2018 for Hendrik F. Breytenbach, MD

Dr B is a great doctor. we feel as if he is a member of our family. Thanks for caring for us, Raymond and Betty T.

from Robert in CA February 28, 2018 for Hendrik F. Breytenbach, MD

I have most appreciated Dr. Breytenbachs immediate availability to hear my concerns and then discuss whether to use various treatment options or use procedures to allow the body to heal itself.
He also is very willing to recommend a specialist if he feels one might be necessary to provide the best possible health care advice.
