My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as a physician has always been to develop a caring relationship with my patients. They get to know me as I get to know them. As a team we will work together to provide a high level of health care and the education necessary for them to better care for themselves. The focus of my practice will always be to try to prevent disease and illness rather than waiting for it to occur and reacting to it.

I have always enjoyed teaching and do it on a daily basis with each patient. I am on the teaching faculty for the primary care clinical rotations at UNC Chapel Hill and East Carolina University Medical Schools, as well as Wingate University’s Physician Assistant program. My office is 3 miles from the home I grew up in. I was a Scoutmaster at Weddington United Methodist Church Troop 99 for 17 years and had the honor of helping to train nearly 100 Eagle Scouts. I remain an active member of Christ Lutheran Church in Charlotte, North Carolina and have been singing in one of their choirs for over 50 years.

I love the practice of medicine and was called by God to use the gifts he has given me to be a healer to my fellow man. It is an honor to care for others and a trust that I cherish. I am human and have my faults and limits, but my patients know that each time they see me I have given them my very best.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Sensenbrenner

from Sharon in NC March 12, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

Dr. Sensenbrenner has always made me comfortable and never has rushed me when I had an issue or question. He sits right there and listens and chats until we get to the point. Then he helps me find the answers to my concerns. He is a very good listener as some doctors I’ve had have been too busy.

from Katherine in NC February 18, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

I was finally going on my dream trip of England, Ireland and Scotland. I had been taking care of myself because this trip had been cancelled due to Covid. I had been waiting 25 years to go to England. I woke up in the morning a day before my departure and felt the exact symptoms of a sinus infection. I’ve had many in the past and knew this was another one coming on fast. I sent Dr. John… See more

from Linda in NC February 12, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

I've been with Dr. Sensenbrenner for many years. He has always been very attentive to any concerns that I or my husband may have. He gives us all the time we need to discuss our medical situations. Even before he went the concierge route he gave us all the time we needed. When my husband was battling cancer, Dr. Sensenbrenner was my husband's "guy" to go to for further… See more

Dr. John Sensenbrenner has been my primary care physician for 13+ years, and my MDVIP doc since he began with the organization. He has treated me for anxiety, depression, multiple sinus and strep episodes, and been compassionate and understanding during my years with IBD, a total colectomy, and stage 4 appendix cancer. His availability and response time to medical questions is extraordinary.… See more

from Ann in NC February 11, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

The worst 2 medical things that have happened to me in my 74 years are getting breast cancer and having a blood clot in my calf. In the first case, Dr. John Sensenbrenner told me "if you have to have breast cancer, this is the one you'd want to have." That calmed me down and as a result, I had a surgery and 16 days of radiation and that was it. It was not a bad experience and I'm grateful for… See more

from Sam in NC February 9, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

I knew John before he became my doctor, we both worked for several years with a Boy Scout Troop. So, I have many memories of John in various settings including the most recent of him as my doctor. From all these memories I would describe John as caring, knowledgeable and wise. I am sure there are other adjectives that would fit, in a positive way, but these are the ones that come to my… See more

from Sandra in SC January 19, 2024 for John W. Sensenbrenner, MD

I had previously been with MDVIP in past years and they have always been accommodating. I moved from Virginia to South Carolina and looked for a doctor with MDVIP. I could not find one when I first arrived. Luckily my son suggested I look a few years ago. I was extremely happy to have Dr. John take me as a patient. He is helpful and knowledgeable with a wonderful personality. He is so kind and… See more
