My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe in treating my patients with the quality care and compassion they deserve.
After practicing general internal medicine for 24 years, my beliefs, my ethics and my reasons for choosing medicine as a profession remain constant. I am able to take sufficient time to develop and maintain the personal and professional relationships which are critical to providing quality care. I enjoy being able to spend time listening to, studying and discussing each patient's unique issues in order to provide proactive care and assess the multitude of medical issues in a thorough and prompt manner. I find great satisfaction and reward in helping guide my patients through the increasingly impersonal and worrisome world of healthcare. I look forward to coming to work each day to do what I love - spending time with my patients and providing them with the personalized care and compassion they deserve.

from Linda in RI January 28, 2024 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

There are many times that my husband and I are grateful for Dr. Ley but one scenario really stands out to me. We were traveling West for a family wedding, John had a nasty fall just a few days before which required several sutures on his lower leg, we made the best of it even though he was uncomfortable and the wound got infected. He started on an antibiotic the evening before we were… See more

from Onesimo in RI January 19, 2024 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

My story is simple. I was a patient of Dr. Christopher Ley before he joined MDVIP. I did not want to change doctors. He was reliable, someone I trusted. So, I stayed with him. He continued to be so, and the best I can add is that when my wife's doctor retired, I convinced her to become his patient. She had female doctors all her life and was reticent at first. Now, we are both his… See more

There really isn’t a reason to continue the competition!! Dr Christopher Ley
MD has been my primary care doctor for 13 years and is not only a great doc but also an exceptional human.
He should be declared the winner!

I trust him, and I am not the easiest patient, but he is the best!

from Edward in RI February 28, 2020 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

I have many stories about my experience with Dr. Christopher Ley, but there is one that stands out. In 2017 I was hospitalized for an unspecified " heart event" on a holiday weekend. after going in to a local hospital ER for a slight breathing problem. After admission I phoned Dr. Ley on his cell phone at night simply to let him know what had transpired. By early the next morning he… See more

from cynthia in RI March 13, 2018 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

i have been a long time patient of Dr. Ley, even before he became a concierge doctor. i have always had the highest regard for Dr. Ley's expertise and his
conservative approach to treatment thereby protecting his patients from
unnecessary procedures or excess drugs.
DR.Ley was my late husband's doctor for many years of challenging physical
conditions and… See more
