My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy in regard to the practice of medicine is centered around developing a collaborative, trusting relationship with all of my patients. This is essential to insure the proper diagnosis and implementation of a treatment plan that is most likely to result in wellness. I believe in the power of preventive care and the early detection of disease. Positive, healthy habits and accountability by both physician and patient are powerful predictors of good outcomes.

I know this submission is coming after the deadline, but I think Dr. Hockwalt is an extraordinary physician and he has made a difference in my life every year I have been going to him.

Jim, I missed the deadline for expressing my good fortune for having you for a personal physician and gratitude for your medical expertise in getting me to 85.
In one of my last visits with you I remarked how appreciative I was to have the opportunity to have your counsel on whatever the purpose of my visit, without the pressure of a limitation on your time.
I only hope that you… See more

from Rosalee in OH March 14, 2018 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

I have know Dr. Hochwalt for at least 20 years. He was my primary care physician before MDVIP. After he joined MDVIP I returned to him as my primary care physician. As we have known one another for such a long time he knows the important things about me so that the care he provides is excellent care. He has been there during difficult times in my life.

Dr. Hochwalt found the fluid on my lung after two doctors missed it. He is through and patient even when I need to be shoe horned into his schedule due to two unexpected infections.

Dr. Hochwalt

If you decide to move to Boston, we will move to Boston; If you decide to move to Montana, we also will move there. However, if you decide to move to Buffalo, we will have to think about it. We are saying that we are so grateful for all that you do
and all that you know. Thank you for always being there for us.

I'm sure my Mother's and Father's genes have helped, but without your concern and help I'd do little to help myself. So, thanks for all your… See more
