My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being an internist for the past 25 years has taught me that what my patients want most is for me to simply listen to them. My patients always feel better when they are heard and not rushed. Since affiliating with MDVIP, my smaller, concierge-like primary care practice affords me the necessary time to get to know everyone on a personal level. I have the time to partner with each patient, developing a relationship built on trust, respect, open communication and empathy. This has helped patients both diagnostically and therapeutically.

I am committed to providing highly individualized medical care and being able to address all of my patients' needs during every appointment in a comfortable and unhurried setting. Building a customized wellness plan takes time, support and partnership.

I am one of only a few internal medicine solo practitioners in Wayne, New Jersey, and I am certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. I also have a strong interest in cardiovascular health and diabetes prevention and treatment.

My personalized healthcare practice serves Passaic, Morris and Bergen counties. I’m on staff at St. Joseph’s, one of the largest medical centers in the state of New Jersey and serve on several of its leadership committees. In 2013, I was honored to receive the Distinguished Physician Award for St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital. I am proud to be a United States Air Force veteran.

Dr.Martin Neilan has been my primary care doctor for 27 years. Besides being kind, caring, always available for appointments and even to just answer any questions by phone, he is the best diagnostician anyone could wish for. I value his friendship and I am happy that I can depend on his advice.

from Susan in DE March 4, 2016 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

Dr. Martin J. Neilan of Wayne, NJ is absolutely the most caring, knowledgeable, and informative physician I have ever known. I first recognized this when bringing my elderly mother to her appointments with him. He and his staff really impressed me as being competent and kind. I then switched doctors and became his patient when in my 50's. Now I am retired and live in southern Delaware but… See more

One Friday night in August, I was in a serious car accident. After I was released from the Emergency Room early Saturday morning, I needed a referral to an Orthopedist.

Thursday I was… See more

from GEORGE in NJ February 25, 2014 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Neilan's for over 10 years and could describe his attributes using the three c's, competance, congeniality and compassion. His desire to do the best for his patients comes through in so many ways. We recently called him on a Sunday to discuss a facial skin condition that had developed. He responded immediately to our call and called in a prescription… See more

from Virginia in NJ February 25, 2014 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

I needed excellent medical care that was available 24/7 for my 92 yr old mother. I was able to get this care through Dr Neilan. He and his office staff provide a comfortable atmosphere in the office as well as a comfort level when making house calls. The only place I can receive excellent care, 24/7 is through a MDVIP physician and I'm glad to be part of Dr Neilan's practice. The… See more

Hi Dr. Neilan. Well, I am living up to my reputation as a huge procrastinator. Today is the deadline to send you my heartfelt message and it's already 4:00 P.M. I have to keep this to 5000 characters and I have no clue how much I can say in 5000 characters, so I'll keep it brief. I think you would appreciate that since I'm sure you don't have much down time in your busy… See more
