My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been in practice since the 1970s and have seen a significant change in the patient-physician relationship in many practices.
In 2006, I became an MDVIP-affiliated physician in order to offer my patients a return to a slower, more personal kind of family medicine. As a result, I am able focus on the art of medicine as well as the diagnostic aspects. Medicine is much more than simply diagnosing disease and dispensing remedies. The act of carefully listening and actually hearing patients has a tremendous positive influence on their wellness. Good health is a consequence not only from tests and medications but also from the personal relationship between you and me.

My name is Honor Branch and I have been a patient of Dr. Zebley for over 25 years.

When Dr. Zebley( I call him Dr. Z) decided to join MDVIP I was one of the first to enroll. It was not an easy financial decision for me, but without my health - what good was anything else.

By the age of 40 I had many abdominal surgeries and a near fatal bowel blockage. I knew that I needed… See more

from Patricia November 6, 2017 for Joseph W Zebley III, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Zebley is simply the best doctor I have ever had and I am happy to pay for MDVIP just to have his office to call when I need him, which I might add has been less since I started going to him! I also find his staff very kind, professional, prompt and knowledgeable. I have only had positive experiences with Dr. Zebley and his staff. I am not surprised that he was voted one of the top… See more

Dr. Zebley. He's more that a doctor, he's a compassionate human being, who I wouldn't be able to gotten through these last several years without. He's always been there when I needed him. I look at him as a good friend as well as my doctor.
He's always been willing to go beyond and take that extra step when it comes to taking care of his patients. I am thankful… See more

Zebley has treated our family for the past 31 years. He made visits to ailing family members in the hospital and knows us all well as individuals and as a family. Perhaps there are others like him but I haven't met that doctor nor spoken with anyone who has. It's a wise decision to seek him out - at any age.

from Frank March 4, 2017 for Joseph W Zebley III, MD, FAAFP

I have a compromised immune… See more

from Barbara March 3, 2017 for Joseph W Zebley III, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Zebley has been my doctor since 1980. He's truly been a family physician, treating my children, mother and sister as well, which has given him additional insight into my medical issues. I've always been able to rely on him to listen to my concerns, answer my questions, and explain fully every aspect of my medical care. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

from Judith in MD March 11, 2016 for Joseph W Zebley III, MD, FAAFP

Helps me a lot with my complicated health situation. Is optimistic and caring. Great guy.

from Lizbeth in MD February 7, 2015 for Joseph W Zebley III, MD, FAAFP

My doctor has always been there for me. I have had a few challenges to face and he has always been supportive and non judgemental about my issues. He is always available when I need something. His staff is professional and friendly. I am also proud to have a physician who cares about health issues for all people and serves on many committees to better healthcare for our state.
