My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have always wanted my patients to feel as if they are visiting family or friends; not as a stranger in a clinical setting. A comfortable environment encourages exploring options – your own, or suggestions offered. Part of my job is assisting patients to recognize that exceptional health is a journey – initiated by genetics. The ultimate path is determined by lifestyle choices and daily habits. I feel privileged to aid patients on their journey. Coaching those truly vested in improving or maintaining heath is what I love to do.

My Civilian and Navy medical training, in what I call "traditional Western medicine,” has provided a solid base on which to add and expand both holistic and Western knowledge. I strive for a balance between the two, while working within the conditions of patients’ desires and actions to “be all you can be.” I have learned that treating symptoms without addressing the underlying causes is not the way to true healing. Seeking and resolving root imbalances is the goal - the road to success.

My new MDVIP-affiliated practice model is an amazing venue for patients to experience treatment the way that they truly deserve. It brings back the “family physician” concept of Marcus Welby, a friend you can trust and confide in. Over the last 30 years, my practice has evolved to both empower and encourage patients. Combine that strength with time and personalization and add the benefits of cutting edge medicine technology, what could be better?

from Mark in LA March 15, 2018 for Karen C. Dantin, MD

Doc is the most down to earth doctor I have ever seen. She has the best bedside manners I have ever experienced with a doctor. I feel like I can talk with her about anything going on in my life and she doesnt judge me. I dont have a lot of money but I will spend every penny I have to remain a patient of hers. I would be lost without her.

from Adrienne in LA March 5, 2018 for Karen C. Dantin, MD

Dr. Dantin takes the time to listen, explain test results thoroughly, and I really appreciate the fact that she suggests supplements and nutritional changes instead of pushing medication unless it's necessary. I really love her willingness to work with me to be the healthiest I can be.

I couldnt ask for a better doctor to treat me. Her… See more

When Dr. Dantin started MDVIP, I was delighted. She is such a good doctor and is open minded and compassionate. Under her care in the past two years I have improved my health considerably, including improvement in my lungs (bronchoestasis).

You can say a lot of things that are compelling and true about Dr Dantin. The real bottom line is she cares more for her patients than herself. You can't ask for anymore than that.

from Cynthia in LA February 27, 2018 for Karen C. Dantin, MD

Her goal is to keep me as healthy as she can and it's a refreshing change to have a healer instead… See more
