My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I entered the practice of internal medicine, quite honestly, to be like the fictional character Marcus Welby. I recall his example of thoughtful and generous interactions with his patients. He was skilled and caring, and an advocate for his patients. I remember the day of my "calling" quite well; I was 13 years old and my mother saw something in me. She said things that planted the seed. My heart was changed and never deviated from what has become my life's journey. Even now, after 35 years in the practice of internal medicine, I still enjoy it and cannot imagine retiring. I love the relationships I have with my patients and our long history together. I have been blessed with excellent health and pursue fitness on a high level. While we all differ in our potential, I believe we underestimate what is possible in our own lives. I am eager to see wellness taken to the next level and believe that MDVIP has helped me develop a program of cutting-edge "best practices".   

My personal practice, emphasizes wellness and disease prevention. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. This model of care enables a caring physician to spend all the time needed, every time and on time, to provide optimal care utilizing the industry's leading technology and laboratory assessments. Quite simply, knowing what I now know is available and its impact on health and disease prevention, I could not choose another path. The numbers don't lie. With MDVIP tools and support, my patients' health can be improved and preserved helping to make the patient's experience vastly better. Patient satisfaction soars, hospitalizations plummet and the overall cost of care is dramatically reduced. How could I not provide this option for my patients! I believe we were given the tools by our Maker to live abundantly well if we care enough and are diligent enough to apply them. I thank God for MDVIP. My calling continues, and I am most grateful!

from Netta in KY April 22, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

My cousin contracted the Corona Virus and spent 10 days critically ill. His sister contacted every one she knew to pray for healing and that his wife would not get this virus. He is 70. People then called their churches to pray and others asked prayer of their family’s and friends. He was hospitalized during these days and not expected to recover. But on that tenth day he tested clear of… See more

from Stephen in KY March 18, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

My wife and I have benefited GREATLY under the diligent care we've received from Dr. Borders for over 30 years. His move into the MDVIP family of care about a year ago was a painful but necessary decision for him, but we celebrate the fact that he chose to continue practicing medicine in making that decision.

We are well pleased with the care and assessments and attentiveness that… See more

from Sharon in KY March 13, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

Dr Borders scheduled an unexpected Pet Scan to research a concern he had. The scan led to an extensive biopsy that revealed a possible reoccurrence of a 30year old breast cancer. If it had not been for Dr Border’s insistence & followup, this hidden, undetected malignant tumor would still be growing. The individual attention & compassion I received kept me strong. Dr Borders appeared in… See more

from Vicki in KY March 12, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

I have been going to Dr Borders for over 30 years. He has always been a wonderful caring doctor and friend. He has been thorough in my treatment and great in communicating with me concerning my high blood pressure and cholesterol issues since my mid-30’s. My dad has had cardiovascular disease and it seemed I was following in his footsteps. When Dr Borders went with MDVIP things got much… See more

from Christopher in KY March 12, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

Dr. Borders has always been generous with his time. I never feel rushed when I am in for an appointment and he genuinely listens – even to some of my prolonged ramblings. But even that has been enhanced with the MDVIP model. With a smaller patient load, Dr. Borders (and his staff) seem to be less stressed and overworked. My wellness checkups are extensive and Dr. Borders takes the time to… See more

from Ellen in KY March 11, 2020 for John V. Borders, MD, FACP

I have gone to Dr. John Borders since about 1990; and can honestly say he is the smartest, kindest, most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever had in my 67 years on this earth. Although he was covered up with patients, Dr. Borders also agreed to take on my husband, handicapped brother-in-law, our daughter, our son, our son-in-law and daughter-in-law as patients; and naturally displayed… See more
