My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
My goal is to help my patients achieve greater health and happiness by first discovering where they are, establishing what they wish for in a health care relationship and then creating real, achievable goals. As a Family Medicine physician, this has been my approach before becoming an MDVIP-affiliated physician. But now, I am confident that we will have the time and tools to make this a reality at every visit in my personalized care practice.
I have taken my own approach to health very seriously, with regular exercise. I am avid about racquetball, walking and hiking. I also pay serious attention to my diet, incorporating vegetarianism and fish into my diet. I know there is not one diet appropriate for everyone and among the many varieties of healthful eating, I support whichever one is life-supporting for my patient. I am a proponent of meditation as a technique for living more fully. I have a background in Ayurvedic medicine, which, in the appropriate circumstances, can be used to treat common conditions. My MDVIP practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge medicine practice, is located in Burtonsville, Maryland; easily accessible from Silver Spring, Laurel, Columbia and Rockville.

Being snowbirds, having Dr Ginsberg available while away from home has been life changing. He has been at the end of the phone to resolve key issues, provide advice to us and consult with other doctors. Having this basically immediate availability when necessary is both comforting and has had a positive effect on our state of mind and our health. Thank you so much Dr Ginsberg!
We are blessed to have Dr Robert Ginsberg as our primary care physician. Besides being a well informed & knowledgeable doctor, he also has a very calming & comforting approach to patient care.
We always leave his office with assurance that health issues are now being well taken care of.
been with Dr. Ginsburg since the 90's and besides the care that he has given me over the years, a friendship developed over the years because of shared memories of the DC/MD area in the past which evolved into a shared likeness for music...........this evolved into a period where i actually was playing/practicing with one of the early incarnations of Dr. Ginsburg's musical career… See more

Dr. Ginsberg makes caring for myself an enjoyable task. He is always willing to listen. He explains a health or unhealthy condition using graphics, which I love,
since I am a visual learner. He is always open to natural alternatives rather than prescription drugs, whenever possible. I am very satisfied with the practice as a whole health community that I can count on, hence I have been a… See more
