Frequently Asked Questions

Doctors who operate in the MDVIP models typically see far fewer patients than traditional primary care doctors. That gives them more time to develop deeper doctor-patient relationships that can lead to better outcomes. They can also offer conveniences that most primary care doctors can’t, including same- and next-day appointments. They’re available after hours for urgent matters. And they have time to focus on prevention. That focus begins with the MDVIP Wellness Program, which patients pay for with their annual membership fee.

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

I remember going to the seminar for Dr. David DeAtkine to introduce The MDVIP practice to his patients twenty years ago. I knew then no matter what I was following him. He had always been so supportive, caring, and kind. Dr. DeAtkine welcomed me years before this as a hypothyroid person who had been bullied and scared by a previous endocrinologist.
Since joining the MDVIP practice, Dr. Read more...

My Doctor Saved my Life

from Gregory in AL • January 20, 2024
I am blest to have a physician that truly cares about his patients and wants to do only the best for them. Rather than mildly encouraging his patients and pushing them to a healthier lifestyle, as he does that too, he also looks for impactful technology and leading edge tests to head off and diagnose early signs of cancer and disease. I am so blest that my doctor felt that it would be helpful Read more...
