My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal, as your physician, is to partner with you to create personalized healthcare plans which will more effectively manage your health problems and work to prevent new ones. I realize that each of my patients have differing medical needs and social situations which impact their health. Together we can make informed decisions on how to address your specific medical needs and goals for your future.

With over 30 years of medical practice in the Charlotte community, I have longstanding relationships with many of our fine specialists which will help you get the most comprehensive care for your unique problems. As you may know, I have many years of practice experience in geriatrics, rehabilitation and long term care health management. On a personal note, I have a great interest and knowledge in cardiovascular health, diabetes and preventive care.

I have been a patient of Dr. William Long for a year now and just renewed my service with him. Our doctor-patient relationship started out great. He knew my husband, my former doctor, who retired, and I felt like I was a part of a family relationship. He has listened to my health questions and even emotional concerns due to my aging. It is even greater that in fact he is a geriatric doctor, so… See more

Sue and I were initially apprehensive and subsequently delighted with our decision to migrate to MDVIP care. Dr William Long has proven to be an exceptional family physican who is both knowledgeable and understanding of our individual needs. Sue and I thoroughly enjoy Dr Long and his wonderful staff. Highly recommended!!

Dr. William Long saved my life. Without getting into personal details, his advice and direction saved my life. He is the most down to earth, top tier MD in the Carolinas hands down. I’d even go to say the entire eastern seaboard & United States. Thank you Dr. Long for your honesty, advice, and most importantly for saving my life!

from Grayden in NC March 14, 2020 for William J. Long, MD

I have been fortunate to have Dr. Long as my physician for many years, and he has helped my family in so many ways it is difficult to thank him enough or recoginize all the many ways he has made my life better. Since the Corona virus is a hot topic now, I can easily recall a situation when Dr. Long played a key role in saving my life and supporting my family in a very special way, for which I… See more

from Thomas in NC March 12, 2020 for William J. Long, MD

Dr. Long is a genuine throwback to the days of the doctor coming to your home with his characteristic black bag. While it is so that I am the one who has to go to him, Dr. Long's patience and non-rushed ways truly set him apart. And the staff? They're mirrors of Dr. Long. Don't know what I'd do without the whole team. Dr. Long -- you have my deepest thanks and gratitude.… See more

He listens, he's reassuring and honest about my care. Sometime I have my own nonprofessional opinions, but Dr. Long does not hesitate to help me understand my concerns and put things in perspective and get me back… See more

I went in for my yearly MDVIP assessment and blood tests. I have been going to Dr. Long for over 33 years. Becoming a MDVIP member has been one of the best decision I have ever made. Going over my assessment and the results with Dr. Long has really made a big difference in understanding the things I need to do for a long term solution and keeping a healthy life style. We went over my results… See more
