My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I first became aware of my passion to become a doctor at the age of 6 and it has never waned. As a board-certified family medicine physician, I care for the whole patient: body, mind and spirit. This necessitates a doctor-patient relationship centered on mutual trust and respect, which begins with the first encounter and must be nurtured over time in order for the relationship to produce the most beneficial results and mutual satisfaction. 

Preventive health and wellness programs are mainstays of our practice and make for healthy and happy patients. The same goes for the treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, along with attention to diagnostic accuracy and the logistics of managing a patient-friendly practice. I believe this is what primary care is all about. 

At all times and under all foreseeable circumstances, as an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I will be available to advise you, to be your medical advocate and, when called upon, to supervise your overall medical care. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. 

With over 30 years of practice in this community, I am well acquainted with many of the specialists in this area and am familiar with the hospitals available to our patients and families. It is a great honor to be chosen by my patients to be their physician. It is not one that I take for granted.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Woessner

from Marie in LA October 4, 2022 for William J. Woessner, MD

As I got closer to retirement age, I realized that I wanted to be able to enjoy my retirement and not be like so many others I have seen who can’t walk a block without having to sit down. I also believe that exercise should be enjoyable. So I thought about the things I enjoyed doing as a child. I started riding a bike and joined a water aerobics class. I’ve also, at various times taken fencing… See more

Dr. Woessner and his staff go above and beyond to ensure that I am well taken care of and always follow up. In the event of urgent needs they always accommodate my schedule and get me in as quickly as possible. I needed a referral recently and they worked quickly to get that accomplished. I’m extremely satisfied and actually enjoy going to the doctor.

The extensive annual wellness checkup is worth the cost of membership. Dr. Woessner does a great job explaining all the results and creating a roadmap to optimize my health. I feel the MDVIP program has personalized healthcare and given both doctors and patients access to better resources.

from Arthur February 9, 2019 for William J. Woessner, MD

I have been with Dr. William Woessner now for a total of over 39 years. He has always been responsive to my medical needs, listens attentively and is caring. I am able to get an appointment with him immediately particularly since he joined MD/VIP. The physical assessment he conducted as part of MD/VIP was the most thorough I have ever had.
