My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have a passion for providing highly personalized healthcare with an emphasis on health maintenance and prevention of disease. I am a board certified internist with special interests in nutrition, weight loss and use of both conventional medicine as well as herbal supplements, when needed. I am also an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Additionally, I have relationships with top specialists in the community to help us manage your unique needs.

In my office, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere so you truly feel at home. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge medicine practice, allows me to provide unhurried office visits, little to no wait time and peace of mind that you can reach me any time you need me – that is highly personalized medicine.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bortz

from Karen in CA March 13, 2020 for David L. Bortz, MD, FACP

I have only been a patient of Dr Bortz for a short time, but he has given me such excellent care especially in great times of need! He always either answers right away or gets right back with me when I call. He really obviously knows so much and how to handle different situations. I couldn't be happier so I hope he stays in San Diego for a long time!

from Ellie Eleanor in CA March 12, 2020 for David L. Bortz, MD, FACP

David Bortz is a very thorough, knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. He is almost always available to address my concerns. Also Dr Bortz has a back-up of other trusted MD’s if he is out of town.

He also employs competent and… See more

I know dr. Bortz for many years and always appreciate his knowledge and help. He takes time to analyze your test results and finds the right solution. Two years ago I was misdiagnosed by some other doctor and I am so grateful that dr. Bortz recognized the problem and saved my health. I am glad dr. Bortz joined MDVIP and happy he is my doctor :-)

Dr. Bortz has been my doctor for 25+ years. I am a very healthy 80 year old woman and I owe it to Dr. Bortz. What I like about him is he is all about preventative care and he is practical in his recommended treatments and procedures. He remembers your history, he listens and takes as much time as you need. I have been to many doctors with my sister and many of them do not even look up from… See more

from Eve in TX February 28, 2018 for David L. Bortz, MD, FACP

I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Bortz while working in SD. I had broken up with several doctors prior as I didn't feel they really cared about how I felt or my overall health & wellbeing. When I met Dr. Bortz he really took his time to figure out my issues and help to get me back on the road to health. He's not only smart with an excellent bedside manner, but funny and more… See more
