My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I entered the practice of internal medicine, quite honestly, to be like the fictional character Marcus Welby. I recall his example of thoughtful and generous interactions with his patients. He was skilled and caring, and an advocate for his patients. I remember the day of my "calling" quite well; I was 13 years old and my mother saw something in me. She said things that planted the seed. My heart was changed and never deviated from what has become my life's journey. Even now, after 35 years in the practice of internal medicine, I still enjoy it and cannot imagine retiring. I love the relationships I have with my patients and our long history together. I have been blessed with excellent health and pursue fitness on a high level. While we all differ in our potential, I believe we underestimate what is possible in our own lives. I am eager to see wellness taken to the next level and believe that MDVIP has helped me develop a program of cutting-edge "best practices".   

My personal practice, emphasizes wellness and disease prevention. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. This model of care enables a caring physician to spend all the time needed, every time and on time, to provide optimal care utilizing the industry's leading technology and laboratory assessments. Quite simply, knowing what I now know is available and its impact on health and disease prevention, I could not choose another path. The numbers don't lie. With MDVIP tools and support, my patients' health can be improved and preserved helping to make the patient's experience vastly better. Patient satisfaction soars, hospitalizations plummet and the overall cost of care is dramatically reduced. How could I not provide this option for my patients! I believe we were given the tools by our Maker to live abundantly well if we care enough and are diligent enough to apply them. I thank God for MDVIP. My calling continues, and I am most grateful!

Dr. John Borders has been my physician since the first year he opened his office. This alone should reflect how I feel about the exceptional quality of medica care I have received from him and his staff. He listens, cares and treats whatever is needed.

Dr. John Borders was highly recommended by a friend when I moved to Lexington 10 years ago. He has gotten me through several illnesses with no serious problems. He is always smiling, concerned and caring. I normally would not care to visit a doctor but Dr. Borders lifts your spirits with his calm demeanor and concern.
