My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am committed to establishing a partnership with each of my patients to understand their healthcare needs, values and concerns. I have a genuine interest in the lives of my patients and believe in the importance of knowing a patient beyond just their medical history. I enjoy taking the time to teach my patients about their individual healthcare in terms they can understand. I believe this typically leads to better outcomes for my patients. I feel so fortunate to be a physician and to have a career that brings me such personal satisfaction.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Minton

from Vincent in VA March 27, 2020 for Stephen M. Minton, MD

There is a well known Oriental saying:--"Who is the emperor now ruling over us?" or, even "What is the emperor?" The implication of such a phrase is that if an emperor is really a great man who can govern perfectly well the society and the nation, and the citizens are completely satisfied to the point that they tend to forget they have an emperor overruling them.

I am always a bit nervous going to a doctor, but Dr. Minton is smart, kind, funny, not a pill pusher and makes me feel at ease. He is always a good listener and takes you seriously. I am thankful he is my doctor. Also his PA, Carrie, is also fantastic.

My purpose of providing this personal insight is to extoll Team MINTON. Active military, and looking at retirement, I wanted continuity of care. Commencing 2006 Dr. Stephen M.

My husband has ongoing health problems but was having a particularly bad time when Dr. Minton and his family went on vacation to a very far away country. To my amazement, he called my husband every day he was away to make sure the situation was in hand. We are eternally grateful.

from Holly in VA March 12, 2020 for Stephen M. Minton, MD

Dr. Minton has been our Dr. forever. He took the time to get to know us and thus our care has been excellent. Having several health issues, he has been my command central. I feel so comfortable with his thoughtful and caring advice. All the specialists he has recommended have been great too. Thanks Dr. Minton.... and Carrie too (who is fantastic as well)

When I first chose Dr. Minton for my internist, I startled him by saying: "Doctor, I am counting on you to take me into my dotage." That was at least 25 years ago and now that I am 85 he has done so. In fact, Dr. Minton has said I might live to be 100. To which I have replied: "Doc, do you really think that is a good idea?"

from Charles in VA March 11, 2020 for Stephen M. Minton, MD

Dr. Minton has been my primary care physician for many years. He’s the best that I’ve ever had. He is caring and concerned for my well being. I think that he has made a real impact on my health and the quality of my life. Since joining MDVIP, he has been able to devote more time to my care and our visits are through and unhurried. I am very happy to have Dr. Minton as my physician.

from David in VA March 11, 2020 for Stephen M. Minton, MD

Also, Dr. Minton continues to follow me closely after the recommended chemotherapy received for… See more

from Joseph in VA March 10, 2020 for Stephen M. Minton, MD

Whenever I meet with Dr. Minton, I find his diagnoses and recommendations to be extremely thorough. In addition to that, he also takes all the time necessary to provide you the background and history of the issues at hand. I never feel rushed or leave his office feeling as if any of my problems were unresolved. Briefly stated, he practices medicine the way it was meant to be and for that, I am… See more
