My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

We provide quality, personalized care in a timely manner for a discerning patient population that is interested in health promotion, prevention and health potential maximization. Our goal continues to be your doctor of choice for your full spectrum primary care, understanding and acknowledging that healthcare is a team effort – patient and doctor – and that no one person has all the answers. With patients as the center of their own healthcare, our role is to encourage you to be as healthy as you can be, and get you to the appropriate specialists, when needed. 

As a family practice physician with over 30 years’ experience and a broad range of interests including geriatrics/older adult medicine and experience in military medicine/occupational medicine as an Air Force Flight Surgeon, serving the greater Southeast Michigan area including Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Washtenaw County, we provide personalized healthcare. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I am affiliated with both St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Ann Arbor and The University of Michigan Health System, working closely with their outpatient and inpatient specialists to enhance and improve your care. I support a holistic, integrative approach to health including diet, exercise and alternative medical care including massage, yoga and herbal medication in addition to traditional medical care.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Edelmann

from Carol in MI January 3, 2024 for Karl J. Edelmann, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Karl Edelmann has been our family doctor for many years. We have consistently received professional, knowledgeable and caring care from him and his staff. It is easy to get an appointment with this office. He has made several medical referrals for me with specialty doctors. It is not difficult to inquire about or pay a bill. I highly recommend this MDVIP office.

from Sharon in MI October 14, 2021 for Karl J. Edelmann, MD, FAAFP

A little over a month ago my husband changed jobs, and therefore changed insurance companies. I went to fill a prescription that I have been filling for over 20 years now and ran into issue after issue. First the Walgreens would only fill one weeks worth, stating they needed "preauthorization" from the doctor to fill the whole scrip. This happened 3 more times before I was finally… See more

I have been seeing Dr. Karl Edelmann for years. In all the years I have been seeing him helped me physically with my medical issues but also mentally. When my brother commit suicide he was there to listen to me and help me with my depression. When I had to have major back surgery he was there to answer some of the questions I had. When the back surgery was not as successful as it was hoped… See more

On Wednesday, April 22 I had to make the decision to have my husband placed under Hospice care. He is 82 and is dying of prostate cancer. Things are very difficult with the Coronavirus, and it is very hard to follow through with regular doctors appointments. We live in the State of Michigan and our shut down is very strict.
I am my husbands caregiver. On Friday, April 24 I was having… See more

I have been with Doctor Edelmann for almost 30 years now. Prior to seeing him as my physician, I dealt with debilitating issues from multiple sclerosis. He got me too the best neurologist in the area and between the two of them, they were able to diminish my symptoms dramatically. The doctor that I had prior to Doctor Edelmann, was unable to discover that I had MS, and accordingly he was… See more

He has not only gone out of his way to understand my… See more

Everyone in the office goes the extra mile for the patients. The doctor is second to none and the nurse is always interested in how I am doing and she knows the members of my family in our history and is concerned and she is this way with everybody. Paula goes the extra mile in arranging appointments for my time schedule which is very difficult due to the fact that I never know from one day to… See more
