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 Juanita in OH March 29, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Dr. Hochwalt has been my Dr. for about 30 years. I can’t say enough about the excellent care he has provided to me. He is not only a wonderful Dr. but a wonderful human being. He actually cares about his patients and shows it. I pray that he continues to do so for a very long time. Thank you so very much, Dr. Hochwalt.

from Alex in OH March 24, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Dr. Hochwalt has been my physician for over 20 years. When he joined MDVIP, I came with him to the program. I did that because he has a high "EQ" and really understands that sometimes, I need confirmation that nothing is wrong. I really appreciate that about him - and in one big instance, it made a big difference in a diagnosis for me. Now, I live overseas but I continue my… See more

from Rosalee in OH March 17, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Dr. James Hochwalt has been my Primary Care Physician for many years, even before he was with MDVIP. He has walked with me through many of experiences that one has on life's journey. He cared for my late husband as well as being a support for me at this difficult time. He made the transition to MDVIP and I decided to follow him in his transition. My new life has had many challenges… See more

from Sally B in OH March 14, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Whenever something odd happens, like a sudden fall while dog walking last December, Dr. Hochwalt is there for me through a simple phone call. The fall happened while his office was particularly overwhelmed and he still offered straightforward advice, found a medical facility and orthopedic doctor close to where I'm now living (which is an area that isn't familiar to him).

I… See more

from John in OH March 14, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Hochwalt for 30 years. He has taken great care of me through some difficult medical problems.

As part of my annual physical in 2017 Dr. Hochwalt thoroughly felt around my neck to determine if there was anything suspicious. In fact he discovered a lump too deep for me to ever notice. It was ultimately determined to be cancerous and five weeks later I had… See more

from Paula in OH March 13, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

For 20+ years, Dr. Jim Hochwalt has been there for me through many major life passages and health issues to surpass.

from Andrew in OH March 12, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Hey , Jim, I've always appreciated you availability and the careful, unhurried time you give me. You're the best. 

from Michael in KY March 11, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Since 1991 I have been a patient of Dr. Hochwalt which, I am fairly confident, makes me one of his oldest patients. Throughout the years I have had numerous maladies which the good Doctor Hochwalt cured with ease; however, there have been a couple of issues, which are not necessary to describe in detail, except to say that without him I would not be here to say, "Thank you."

from Wayne & Debbie in OH March 10, 2020 for James M. Hochwalt, MD

Jim and I go back to the mid 90’s. The comfort of knowing he’s “taking care” of me ( and my wife) goes beyond our medical needs. His forward look into our health In the future - creates a trusted relationship that is rare. Like a friend who’s always looking out for you! Thanks.
