My primary care MD- Dr Alan Reisinger never gave up talking to me about weight loss. We discussed it, despite my resistance, at most of my visits over 5+ years. About 3 years ago he persuaded me to try a diet that he believed would make a difference. I had success with this diet as well as cutting back on grams of sugar and have lost 40 pounds. I thank him for his persistence.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I am a board-certified internal medicine doctor with a passion for people, a focus on prevention and a desire to practice medicine the way it was meant to be practiced. As your personal physician, I believe in combining both the art and the science of medicine, and in being relentless in doing what it takes to provide you with the care you deserve. My philosophy of care combines lifestyle change support (e.g., nutrition, exercise, stress management, healthy habits) with advanced tests and screenings aimed at preventing heart disease, stroke and diabetes. I strive to bring you the best of all worlds of healing.
I’ve been practicing personalized primary care as an MDVIP-affiliated physician since 2008, offering same-day or next-day appointments that are unrushed. This preventive healthcare model revolves around the MDVIP Wellness Program, a truly comprehensive yearly assessment of current health and future risks, resulting in a customized plan built around you to help optimize your health and well-being.
My staff works hard to provide a serene, welcoming, healing environment, to inject a little humor when possible and to make you feel like family whenever you call or visit our office. We look forward to hearing from you.
