My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always based my practice of family medicine on a strong physician-patient relationship and in-depth communication. Through thoughtful dialog, intent listening, a thorough physical examination with honed skills and understanding each patient’s autonomy, a shared decision can be made for improving healthcare. I embrace holistic care tailored to those physical, nutritional, emotional and spiritual needs of each individual as the framework for wellness, prevention and early detection in all aspects of necessary care.   

My role as your private doctor acknowledges and honors that each person’s care needs to be unique. MDVIP offers an approach to practicing family medicine with a platform directed for success through wellness, prevention and early diagnostic means. As your primary care physician, we can aim to impact health and well-being by approaching those aspects of healthcare tailored to your individualized medical circumstances. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Continuity of personalized care through ongoing follow-ups and making timely changes along the way, we will share a mutual path to positive results and search for the highest quality of life possible for you, your family, and loved ones.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Krauss

from Perri in WA April 1, 2020 for Ron Krauss, MD

Thru out my adult life, as i sit waiting to be called into the exam room, I rehearse my conversation with my doctor or nurse. As I got much older I noticed my rehearsal went from an explanation to a pleading of "please listen to me I really feel I have a problem". An example of this was I had started to notice that I was having the feeling like I was not getting a lung full of air.… See more

from James in WA March 18, 2020 for Ron Krauss, MD

Dr. Krauss has always helped me to overcome any medical condition throughout all the years. If he felt that I needed a specialist, he never hesitated to refer me. Most of the time Dr. Krauss was able to help me himself. I always appreciated his cheerfulness and enthusiasm about being a doctor. No matter what the reason was for an appointment, he was always willing to spend as much time with me… See more

from Karin in WA March 12, 2020 for Ron Krauss, MD

In 1978, we moved to the area and needed a family physician. Dr. Krauss was fairly new in town and was taking new patients. We were pleased with the relationship from the beginning.
In 1980, I was pregnant with my third child and Dr. Krauss referred me to an obstetrician, so I didn't really see him for those 9 months.
In the evening, after the birth, I looked up to see Dr.… See more

My own doctor retired and I was looking for a knew one as good as my other doctor was. When I showed up to asked if he could renew my prescriptions he readily did. Hopefully with this virus going around I will not need to use him until my yearly physical May or June. He is as good as my first doctor and takes the time with you and asks some good questions.

from Robert Joy in WA March 11, 2020 for Ron Krauss, MD

We have been with MDVIP doctors for 12 years and with Dr. Krauss for 3 years. He has helped my wife manage her arthritis pain. He strongly encouraged us to loose weight and we have done so. I have lost 35 pounds over 2 years.

from Phyllis in WA March 4, 2020 for Ron Krauss, MD

I have been with Dr. Krauss for over 40 years. We were both much younger then! He always listens, even though what I am complaining about or sharing is not necessarily medical! He has always been there for me. His staff has been helpful and friendly. I have told him he cannot retire until I am done. When I needed to get an appointment in a hurry, it was done. I am sure there were many specific… See more
