My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As I reflect on the reasons I chose a career in Internal Medicine, the first word that comes to my mind is relationships. Early on in medical school, at the University of Louisville, I enjoyed getting to know my patients as more than simply a disease or medical problem. Now in my twelfth year as a physician, getting to know my patients on a personal level and working towards their wellness goals makes every patient encounter rewarding. As an avid cyclist and triathlete, as well as father of two young children, I also understand the need to balance physical activity with the demands of work and family. My goal is to help my patients formulate and achieve their wellness goals, whatever they may be. 

As the profession of medicine evolves in the 21st century, an unfortunate consequence of the changes in primary care medicine is shorter patient visits and less availability of doctors to their patients. As your private physician, I envision a return to prior times in medicine where patients could enjoy a cup of coffee in the physician’s office rather than hurry through an office visit. My patients deserve to have the time to have all of their problems addressed during an office visit in an unhurried manor. My patients and I will enjoy the time to get to know each other on a personal level. My MDVIP-affiliated practice also offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. This relationship will allow me, as your personal doctor, to develop a wellness plan suited to you, and be available to you for when you need me.

from John in KY March 12, 2020 for M. Dathan Chesnut, MD

It's a God send that I found Dr. Chestnut when I did. Just months after meeting I had an unexpected, life changing event and Dr. Chestnut helped me through it immensely with his wise medical counsel and compassion. I am so grateful for his check-ins and his willingness to make time. Having Dr. Chestnut as my doctor has been an amazing experience- I'm so grateful! Thank you! 

from Todd in KY March 11, 2020 for M. Dathan Chesnut, MD

Dr. Chesnut has always been there for me and my family. Had two serious medical issues in a 9 month period. He referred me to the best specialist/surgeon, both procedures went perfectly, but took it’s toll on me mentally, causing very negative personality changes. Dr. Chesnut never stopped supporting me and got me back to my “old self” again. He’s the best!

Dr. Chesnut,
How can I express my gratitude to you over the past few years? First, you have always answered my calls or returned my calls shortly. You are a wonderful and kind listener with a great sense of humor! I trust you entirely with my health care and my frame of mind.
May you continue to give to your patients your thoughtfulness, as I hope we, your patients, do the same… See more

I would like to thank Dr. Chestnut for the personal attention that he shows us each time we visit his office. He takes the time to understand what we need. He is always available to return a call or answer a question. He is the best physician that I have had. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
