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.

Testimonials from patients of Greg Ferrara, MD

Truly Cares about our Health

from Susan in LA • March 14, 2024
I feel that our relationship with Dr Ferrara exceeds all expectations of what a General Physician is to you personally and professionally . My husband Terry Porter has had many significant health issues over the years (Hep C , heart by pass , prostrate cancer, etc) and I don’t think Terry would have recovered as well or had the confidence needed to bounce back without the encouragement and Read more...

Finding The Perfect Doctor

from Virginia Gail in LA • March 10, 2024

When I relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana from Texas my first task was to find a new doctor. Unfortunately, I had two failed attempts that wasted 2 years of my life before I found Dr. Greg Ferrara.
I turned 80 last year. My main concerns were blood sugar readings that had spiraled out of control and my failures to lose the weight I definitely needed to lose. I finally ask a trusted Read more...

24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK.

from RICHARD in LA • March 10, 2024
Dr Greg Ferrara has been my primary care doctor in Baton Rouge for close to 20 years. I had back surgery in December and then developed Sepsis. After 3 weeks in the hospitals, and taking a large daily dose of heavy anti-biotics, I was having some anxieties over what probiotics I should be taking, how often I could take the mild laxative my doctor prescribed, etc. I called Dr Ferrara's Read more...

Peace of Mind

from Mirelle in LA • March 9, 2024
I found MDVIP and Doctor Ferrara 10 years ago. 13 years ago, i was diagnosed with 3 life changing problems. I had multiple surgeries and saw multiple doctors. I was visiting my family and needed help with something. I visited often, so I decided that I needed a doctor that was accessible. I am no longer a visitor, but a resident, and being a patient brings me peace of mind. Dr Ferrara and his Read more...

I could have easily died.

from Michael in LA • February 18, 2024
My doctor is Greg Ferrara. He has been my doctor for many years, including those before MDVIP. In 2010, I became very short of breath suddenly one night and had my wife call Dr. Ferrara when his office opened the next day. He had us come in immediately even though he had other scheduled appointments. He conducted a series of tests and reviewed my symptoms and said it appeared like I had pneumonia Read more...
