My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always felt the most important aspect of my job is to listen. Taking the time to hear what the person in front of me is saying does not occur passively, but is an active process, key to learning the story of your life. Now within the framework of MDVIP I will be finding ways for you, as a patient, to become a healthy person. Together we will be creative to set new goals and forge a lifestyle that leads to wellness. If you find yourself ill, my smaller practice size allows me the time and flexibility to address health problems quickly and thoroughly.

My primary care practice has two locations in Detroit and West Bloomfield, Michigan, and serves patients from Franklin, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield and surrounding towns.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Kolender

from lacie in MI March 11, 2020 for Brian J. Kolender, MD

Dr. Kolender has been my doctor for almost twenty years. Initially I thought he was too young he had just started his practice. He grew a beard which aged him
a little but wasn't complimentary, thankfully he got over that. Now he's a vegan, no meat, no eat!! Setting aside the laugh, I appreciate his enthusiasm to integrate traditional medicine with natural solutions which is… See more

I have only begun with Dr. Kolender but I hate going to the Doctor. Despise needles.

There is sometimes in your life when you say yes and it has a great impact for the rest your life. One day I called in for an appointment with my primary internist, he was booked but he brought on another doctor, Dr. Brian Kolender who had openings. So I took an appointment with him and I dont know how many years ago that was probably a couple of decades by now! Along the way the rest of my… See more

from Susan in MI February 27, 2018 for Brian J. Kolender, MD

Dr. Kolender has kept an eye on both my husband and me for quite some time now. We followed him from his stress filled practice to MDVIP. We both love that he has more time to devote to individual patients now. He and his staff have seen us through out-of-state emergencies when we travel. Once he scheduled an appointment for me to see a surgeon when I had a cancer scare. We both have… See more
