To make a long story short, I had a wonderful integrative practice before moving to the city I am in now. Three practices have been tried and "fired" because I was either not seeing the same doctor with each visit, or the doctor told me vitamins were making me fat, or the NP was careless about recording tests on my record which had not been performed, or trying to prescribe… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
- Partnership between physician and patient is critical to developing unique approaches customized to your individual needs and preferences. This requires the patient to be forthright with what is going on in his/her life and the physician to listen carefully to the details.
- I work with you to guide your path to better health as you make choices about your health habits and behaviors.
- Self-care is often more important than physician prescribed treatments.
- In addition to diagnosing and treating, my job is to educate, coach and support.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Emhof
Dr. Emhof and his staff have cared for myself, sister, and mother for many years. I have been going to them for 30 years! He and his staff are friendly, pleasant, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Whether we are in town or traveling, they are only a phone call away and address our illnesses immediately. Dr. E is a pleasure to converse with during appointments and his wealth of… See more
Before MDVIP and Dr. Emhof, I used to dread doctor visits. I began to think they were doing more harm than good. It turns out, I was probably right. This is best illustrated by some before and after examples. Before Dr. Emhof and MDVIP, I was on blood pressure medication that made me cough uncontrollably. It interfered with my ability to talk (not a good situation for a trial lawyer).… See more
Dr. Emhof found I had bronchitis Thursday, February 13th and prescribed a series of medicartions to both make having the disease more comfortable (he and Elizabeth proposed that I sleep with my head elevated. I would have never known to do this, but each night was more bearable during the illness. All is well for myself and Barbara after we both went through this. Thanks for the care given.… See more
We met Dr Emhof as a member of our church and fellow homeschool dad nearly 35 years ago. Through the years our friendship has continued. After having him as our family physician for many, many years, We were the first couple to signup for his MDVIP services. We appreciate the extra in-depth tests he performs as well as the exceptional amount of time he extends to each patient. His knowledge… See more
I moved to Tallahassee in 1982. My sister-in-law, at that time, recommended Dr. Emhof to me for my family. He talks to me and answers my questions. Last
year I experienced chest pains in my lungs. He sent me to get CT Scan. The next day it was worse and sent me to the emergency room. I had blood clots in my lungs. He always is a caring doctor.
It is so encouraging to finally, at my age, have a real doctor that I have confidence in. Dr. Leslie Emhof is that person. He believes that prevention trumps cure and is slow to reach for the prescription pad. Most importantly he takes time to listen and understand the situation behind an issue. That approach saves a lot of wasted time, money and effort chasing ghosts.
His style… See more
Dr. Emhoff has been our family doctor for many years. Not only has he been our physician, he and his wife have also been family friends for several years. Their family has always been an inspiration to my wife and I - simply amazing.
Dr. Emhoff helped us begin our 'wellness' life long before it was the popular route for physicians. During our time of having the privilege of… See more
