My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have seen how the practice of medicine has changed over the course of 40 years as more and more care is being dictated not by the doctors, but by insurance companies and various government agencies. Many times, this is not the type of care that a great doctor wants to provide. With MDVIP, I have the opportunity to provide timely, extended visits and focus more on wellness. Please join me along this new journey of personalized care.

from ROBERT in TX March 23, 2017 for Les Nowitz, MD

I'm 82 and he takes good care of me.

from Annette in TX February 12, 2015 for Les Nowitz, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Nowitz for more than 35 years. He has always been there for me and my family. So when he chose to be an MDVIP member I very much wanted to continue with him as my primary care doctor. I appreciate the benefits of getting appointments the same day, and the extra time he has to spend when I am there. He is available pretty much 24/7 in the event of an emergency. I… See more

from Sarah in TX February 25, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

I am delighted to have the opportunity to express my appreciation of the excellent care I have received from Dr. Nowiz. I've been his patient for over 30 years and during that time, his engaging, attentive and confidence inspiring style has remained the same. That's what makes it so easy to trust and to follow his recommendations. These personal qualities, in my opinion, align… See more

from Lawrence in TX February 23, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

Dr Nowitz as a physician is a gift from God in my estimation.

I could rattle off many superlatives about DR Nowitz, but for the economy of words I would state that besides being personable and professional, he gives me great confidence that what he's doing is the right to do.

As an example: from an ordinary urin sample - blood showed up in the test. The Doctor called me… See more

Dr. Nowitz you are the best. Larry and I feel so fortunate to have you as our family doctor. You encouraged both to get on a exercise program and it is working. You know us just not fast enough. Thanks for always taking our phone calls in a speedy manner and finding the answers for our needs. We know whenever in doubt about any medical or personal issues you are willing to listen. Thanks… See more

from Barbara in TX February 19, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

It is disconcerting listening to friends that do not have a MDVIP that coordinates all their doctors like Dr. Nowitz does for all of us. When specialists have said that there is nothing to do for me.....Dr. Nowitz's refuses to listen to this answer and keeps diggin for an answer. Dr. Nowitz: I LOVE YOU!

from Walter in TX February 17, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

When Dr. Nowitz first mentioned he was joing MDVIP, I didn't hesitate to stay with him by becoming a member. He has been my doctor for years and I am very happy the service he provides and also him as a person. I am very comfortable and feel good knowing I can talk with him about anything with reservation. If it wasn't for him, I would not finally be on the road to making a big… See more

from JEFFREY in TX February 13, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

Dr. Nowitz always takes care of me in the best fashion. We get to share stories while he's stitching me up or performing one or another procedure. I have greatly appreciated his participation in the MDVIP program. I think it's the best for him and me. Thanks Dr. Nowitz!

from Kip in TX February 13, 2014 for Les Nowitz, MD

Dr. Nowitz has been our physician for approximately 20 years. He has provided my husband and I with great care. When he introduced MDVIP to us we were definitely interested as we did not want to lose him as our family physician. We love that he has more time to spend with us when we come in for an appointment and more time for himself too. He seems more relaxed and a lot happier. We have… See more
