My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"Listen to your patients and they will tell you their diagnosis." Sir William Osler, the father of modern medicine and an esteemed clinician and teacher, wrote those words over 100 years ago and they are as true today as then. Despite all the technology and science now at our disposal, listening is still the most valuable key to the relationship between patient and physician. We listen to each other to diagnose, treat and most importantly maintain a healthy life. We develop a partnership dedicated to your health and well-being. A partnership where I take a holistic approach to all aspects of your health including preventive medicine to maintain your health proactively.

I provide personalized, comprehensive medical care in sickness and in health, much like a concierge physician. As a family physician and geriatrician, my staff and I take great pride in my solo practice. I see every patient and do not employ physician extenders. I round daily in all three local hospitals, Fawcett Memorial, Bayfront Health Punta Gorda and Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, caring for my patients, managing consultants, and coordinating a seamless transition between hospital and medical office. A staff member answers your phone call, not a machine, and they will promptly take care of your needs and get it right the first time.

About the Practice/Practice News

Change is significantly affecting the healthcare landscape with ongoing implications for doctors and patients. It’s nearly impossible to navigate such a complex system alone, but with me as your ally, we can get through it together and keep you on the path to optimal health.

The best healthcare starts with a physician partner who truly knows you, your needs and your goals. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you come first. Third parties and red tape will not interfere with my ability to care for you the way you deserve.

Dr.Droffner, you are so very special to me,and have been for some 20 years or more. I have never been rushed, and truly look forward to my apps. When I need you you are always there. When hospice did not show up, when my husband passed, I called you and got your answering service and in seconds you called back, and I told you no one showed up to pronounce his passing. I panicked, and you said… See more

Dr. Droffner has been our primary care physician for over 25 years. He is caring, nurturing and he listens and follows up with his patients. He has incredible knowledge & research at his fingertips.

Returning to home, a… See more

from Dennis in FL March 4, 2018 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

Nearly 20 years ago, I learned of Dr. Droffner from some of my patients. I am a retired naturopathic physician and registered nurse therapist who has been in pain management practices in West Palm Beach and Port Charlotte. Those patients testified to not only to his unmatched care but also to his uncanny ability to diagnose difficult conditions.
My wife and I attempted to become his… See more
