My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician, I view good health as a product of an individual’s body, mind, spirit and the environment all working together optimally. I know that an excellent doctor-patient relationship is based on mutual trust, and I respect and enjoy patients that come from all seasons and walks of life. As I develop a relationship with my patients, I create a personalized healthcare plan that involves those different factors with the hope of moving each person from their starting point to a better place. With me functioning as your private physician, we can aspire together to improve your health now and plan for a healthy future. 

I have been in the Harrisburg and Central Pennsylvania medical community since 1996, with experience in medical education, as well as private practice. In my private practice, I enjoy managing a panel of primary care issues including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, anxiety and depression. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I put a strong emphasis on prevention and have an approach to healthcare that involves using wise lifestyle decisions, fitness and nutrition when addressing current and future medical needs. Due to my longevity in the area, I have established excellent professional relationships with local specialists with whom I consult when specialty care is needed. I have no direct affiliation with a hospital system; however, if inpatient care is needed, I do work with the hospitalists who care for my patients.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Rayner

from Christine in PA March 12, 2020 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

I first met Dr Rayner at the Aspire Care walk in urgent care. He treated my issue then began to review my previous visits. He said he noticed my BP was up a bit and asked me why I was on several of my medicines. As I left I thought. Wow!
he was interested in much more of my health than the problem I went for that day

Shortly thereafter I asked if he was taking new patients and… See more

I can’t say enough about my remarkable doctor, Richard Rayner. While I am concerned about the health of my 98 year old mother and my senior siblings during this coronavirus epidemic, I find great peace in the excellence of our exceptional doctor. He is vigilant about keeping up with our health and providing clear health maintenance instructions. We sincerely appreciate him and we’re grateful… See more

from Debra March 23, 2019 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

My story is best summarized by the phrase I'm an example of a Conceirge Medicine success story. It's the short version of my answer when asked what is the secret to the successful weight loss I have achieved this past year. I was a patient of Dr. Rayner's for many years, and followed him to his Conceirge practice. Over the years he had spoken with me about the importance of… See more

from Joanne in PA March 20, 2018 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

There are not enough kind words or thanks to convey how awesome Dr. Richard Rayner is. He not only provides excellent care but he also shows genuine care and concern for his patients. Im not sure how I would have made it during the passing of my husband without his outstanding care and concern for both my physical and mental health.

Dr. Rayner not only cared for me and my husband but he… See more

from Evawn in PA March 18, 2018 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

When Dr. Rayner first informed me about his intention to move to the new MDVIP program -- and the cost to me -- I was extremely hesitant. I love the guy but, geez, even more money on top of my already astronomical self-employed health insurance, I think not. Ultimately I decided to give it a try for one year. Am I ever glad I did.

I started the program in June 2017. In July my… See more

from Bryan in PA March 5, 2018 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

Thank you, Dr. Rayner. You are the first doctor to actually listen to me. We were able to have a conversation together to figure out my health goals and concerns rather than you telling me what I'm doing wrong. I appreciate your care and concern so much.

from Scott in PA March 5, 2018 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

I went to Dr Rayner previous to him joining MDVIP. It was suggested by a friend of mine to see him. I have followed him to MDVIP because of his professionalism and manner about him. I have found that other people I am acquainted with and friends with, have also stayed with him in his transition to MDVIP. He is truly a medical professional and caring person.

from Christine in PA March 1, 2018 for Richard M. Rayner, MD

Since I started with Dr Rayner as my
PCP I have felt so relieved knowing that I am being cared for by a extremely competent physician. He is accessible and caring. He continues to move forward when diagnosing. Im very pleased. Rate: 5
