from Beverly in LA March 18, 2016 for David R. Carver, MD

When Dr Carver let his patients know about Mdvip I thought I would try it for one year, well I think I'm into year 3 or 4 and I absolutely love it. No waiting for appointments and the time he is able to spend with you is well worth the money. I pay quarterly and it's not even an issue.
