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 Laurie in SC March 19, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

Best decision I ever made, my doctor is the best! I also referred my elderly parents to my doctor. They now have a quarterback looking after them and coordinating all of their health care specialists. The peace of mind that this brings me is priceless!

from Lilliian in RI February 28, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

I am very satisfied with MDVP and my Doctor
'Christopher Ley, M.D. He has responded to my calls always. I also want to say that the office staff is outstanding.
I appreciate the fact that he takes the time to come out of his office and explain to my daughter abiut the result of my visit.
I would recommend highly.

I have been extremely pleased with the medical services provided by Dr. Ley.

from Helen in RI February 7, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

Joining Ley MD was the best thing I've done in a long time! Not only is Dr. Ley a fantastic and brilliant Doctor, but having the care and attention of his superb staff, the knowledge that I can reach him and/or his staff quickly all equal an A+ experience. It's the way a Medical Practice should run.

from Bonnie in RI February 6, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

Dr. Ley is concerned with the whole patient. He is interested not only in your overall health but also with the quality of your life. He manages to be both a consummate professional and a friend who really wants to know how your life is going.

from George in RI February 5, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

Having been Dr. Ley's patient for close to 25 years, I have been treated by him in four locations. Not only are his current offices the best; his practice is better than ever. Whenever I want to see him or speak to him, he's available, courteous, and gracious. He also has an excellent staff, including Jeanette and Melanie, among others. I hope that Dr. Ley likes most of his… See more

from Marcel in RI February 5, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

I had the option of not joining Dr. Ley after many yrs. with him at his previous practice. At my advanced age there was no question that I would not follow him to MDVIP. Dr. Ley is the smartest diagnostician that I have been to in my now 81 years of age. And, I tell him that each year when I go for my annual examination.
His knowledge goes beyond his own internal medicine specialty.… See more

from David in RI February 5, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

It's like having a best friend who is a doctor. I always feel like a VIP. Dr. Ley actually cares about me and my health. I hope he doesn't retire before I die! haha!

from Onésimo in RI February 6, 2014 for Christopher W. Ley, MD

I have only good things to say about Dr. Christopher Ley. He knows my whole medical history and I feel quite comfortable talking to him when I see him. He takes all the time needed. Luckily I have been enjoying good health, so I have not yet tested the limits of his patience and of his capacity to respond to special needs. However, I can definitely say that every time I have needed him or… See more
