My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy in regard to the practice of medicine is centered around developing a collaborative, trusting relationship with all of my patients. This is essential to insure the proper diagnosis and implementation of a treatment plan that is most likely to result in wellness. I believe in the power of preventive care and the early detection of disease. Positive, healthy habits and accountability by both physician and patient are powerful predictors of good outcomes.

from Marvin in OH March 30, 2017 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

I believe Dr. James Hochwalt became my internist his first year of practice; some 26 years ago. I've followed Jim to another Internist Group and then to MDVIP. I have a great relationship with Jim and value the time he can spend with me because of the MDVIP practice. Most importantly I trust his judgment regarding my health.

from Mary Louise in OH March 29, 2017 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

It has been a blessing to have Jim as my physician even before MDVIP. My husband (who is now deceased) and I were so pleased with the care and personal attention we have received during the years. I really depend on his guidance with my health, although I probably cause him a bit of frustration with my numbers!!. Also, the office staff could not be my friendly and helpful. Thank you all… See more

I cannot imagine life without Dr. James Hochwalt, his associate doctors, and the MDVIP network. When you experience an emergency, and really feel vulnerable, you need immediate response and the connections that MDVIP doctors can provide.
