Meet Christian F. Negard, MD


Aloha!  

 My family and I relocated to Santa Cruz from Hawaii. My three kids and wife are all thriving in academics, and more importantly the "school of life." Who could ask for more? I have pivoted from 16 years of full-time geriatric medicine back to family medicine and am finding new purpose and meaning in clinic again. I am sharpening some new tools and what a blessing and privilege it has been so far. Our office is here to create the personalized care found in old-fashioned medicine, where you are known and cared for, and it feels like an extension of family. 

It is my ambition to be a coherent and caring consultant who can help you navigate the confusing maze healthcare has become. I have the sacred honor of not just helping you tell your own story, but also hopefully being a valuable sounding board and encourager in your sometimes vulnerable moments. I can help you in your pursuit of wellness and aging better, and more importantly, I can challenge you to work toward maximizing your "well-being." Thank you for taking interest in us; we are here to help serve your medical needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.
