My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I am board-certified in family medicine and am a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. My hospital affiliations include Pennsylvania Hospital and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia and I have developed close relationships with many of their top specialists. I speak to them directly about my patients' acute medical needs and can often schedule appointments quickly. My personalized healthcare practice is in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Philadelphia near historic Society Hill, Queen Village, Midtown Village and Washington Square. Our South Street location is vibrant and diverse, and the office is sunny and colorful with views of our community garden.
As your private doctor, I will help you navigate the healthcare system, which can be a daunting process, and I will be your advocate for any healthcare concerns outside of my office. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. I look forward to being your physician partner as we begin your journey towards a healthier you.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bralow
The first time I went to see Dr. Bralow I knew that she would be able to make the difference with me that needed to be made. I had anxiety and had already lost 30 lbs. by the time I had my first visit with Dr. Bralow and was only sleeping 3-5 hours on a good night. A lot of nights I was awake around the clock. I had racing thoughts and was extremely tired. I was truly worried, sad and afraid… See more
In 2016, two days before Thanksgiving, I found out that incidental findings, from an emergency room visit at the end of October for an abscess tooth, were much more serious than I originally thought. As it turned out I had a brain aneurysm and as soon as I was on blood thinners long enough (about two weeks) I would be having a pipe line put in place by a neurosurgeon. On top of that I was… See more
Many thanks to Dr. Bralow for helping guide me to a far stronger state of health than when we first met. The solution was a combination of annual physical exams, with thorough discussion of results; then referrals to specialists who can often be so hard to access, including an outstanding nutritionist and personal trainer. She listens, discusses, analyzes, and cares. My blood profile tells the… See more
As a working mom with 2 teenage daughters, I was struggling to coordinate medical care for myself and my busy family. Dr. Bralow has been a godsend for our family. In our house, I call her "Dr. Mom" - when my daughters come to me at all hours with health concerns big and small, I tell them to text Dr. Mom- "Have you texted Dr. Bralow about that?" They have developed a… See more
When I was diagnosed with a cancerous mass on my ovaries I had an angel (Dr. Bralow) in my corner. From going through tests to well after my surgery I got my answers and explained all procedures. By communicating through email or texts conversations we’re so easy. I never felt like “just a number.” I was feeling uncomfortable “hot flashes” when she visited me in the hospital with an electric… See more
I had reconnected with Dr. Bralow having been a paitent of hers 10 years ago before her MDVIP practice. I was an infrequent patient at best but always appreciated Dr. Barlow's approach. I had heard she had started an MDVIP practice but never got much further than saying to myself I really should check that out. Then my son turned 18 and needed to replace his pediatric doctors. I knew… See more
Vicki made a quick diagnosis that has changed the quality of my life forever. Her keen attention to detail allowed me to get the surgery I needed to correct my issues and get back to living my fullest life. She's a great listener, advisor and consummate care provider. My life is better for being in her care.
I can honestly say that in the two or three office visits I have had since starting with Dr. Bralow nine months ago, I have had more face time with a real doctor, as opposed to a physician's assistant or nurse practitioner, than I have had in the past 18 years COMBINED.
Dr. Bralow is great. She is more than just a doctor. She makes you feel like a friend and you are part of her community. Both my husband and I think very highly of her.
I recently fell walking to work. Luckily, I was still close to my home to be able to hobble there. It was around 7:00 am and I texted Dr. Bralow for advice. She answered immediately and said to meet me at her… See more
