My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as a primary care doctor has been to partner with my patients and their families. Perhaps that stems from having been trained in both pediatrics and internal medicine, as well as teaching both residents and medical students at a University Medical Center. A good teacher should be able to clearly explain a difficult concept and the proof is when the student can then explain it to the next person. As in any relationship, it takes time to listen and discuss options that work for the individual patient. I count myself successful when my patient attains their health goals and feels confident in their ability to stay as healthy and active as possible. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I feel empowered to offer individualized care to each of my patients, whether young, old or somewhere in the middle.

Living in a small community means that you may find me shopping at the local farmers market, hiking on the nearby trails and beaches with my dog or wine tasting at some of our local, world-renowned wineries.

I feel comfortable asking questions and sharing my concerns about my health. My doctor listens with genuine interest. So far so good!

from Patty March 21, 2019 for Karen A. Fong, MD

Dr Fong has always sat down & spent as much time as needed to discuss my concerns. She offers clear explanations and always has a plan for following up. She is a very good listener and a great clinician who always seems to keep up on current literature.

Dr. Fong is by far the very BEST doctor I have ever been to. She is like a tiger when trying to figure out what has caused my health problems. I believe she has truly prolonged my life. Also, she is undoubtedly the smartest person I have ever met.

Rating 5
My Doctor is very methodical in her diagnosis of my health issues

from Helen February 5, 2019 for Karen A. Fong, MD

We were health care professionals before retiring. Our experience with our doctor before MVIP was extremely good. We notice very little improvement with our regular medical care with MDVIP except the high cost. We paid only because we wanted to continue with our wonderful physician not because the supposed services were of benefit. Most medical information is available online for free. I… See more
