My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My mission is your health and your wellness. My style is not just caring for my patients but caring about them. Critical to their health management is a true understanding of their lives, their world, which so greatly impacts their health. The MDVIP personalized healthcare model provides me the time to do just that. Wellness takes on different meanings at different ages – from running your first marathon at age 40, planting that vegetable garden at age 60 or dancing at your granddaughter’s wedding at age 80. I look forward to partnering with you in optimizing your health and your wellness wherever life finds you.

My MDVIP-affiliated practice in internal medicine primarily serves the Main Line and western suburbs of Philadelphia. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I am associated with the Main Line Health system and serve on the active medical staff of the Lankenau Medical Center. I have over three decades of trusted relationships with skilled specialists and surgeons qualified to assist you with your unique needs. Join me now and let us work together so that you may be all that you can be.

from Susan in PA February 17, 2024 for James P. Harkins, MD

I was referred to Dr. Harkins by my previous gynecologist because Dr. Harkins was his physician! So Dr. Harkins was a qualified referral from someone I already trusted and respected, especially since my gynocologist saw me through some tough times with cancer.
