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, primary care practice affords me the necessary time to get to know everyone on a personal level. I have more 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 individualized medical care and being able to my patients' needs during appointments 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 MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.  

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. Neilan has emphasized the importance of sleep, healthy diet, and exercise. He takes the time to explain where and how improvements can be… See more

from Susan in NJ February 12, 2024 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

I've been in this body for 73 years and I know it well. When I meet with Dr. Neilan and tell him what I am physically feeling, he doesn't fluff it off. We discuss what is happening, I give him my input, dialogue begins, then he examines me, we discuss his findings and proceed with a logical course of action. Dr. Neilan is an amazing physician as well as an upstanding individual.… See more

from Christine in NJ February 11, 2024 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

I have known Dr Neilan for several years, as an RN in the hospital where Dr Neilan and I both worked. Like most RNs I observed his care and patient outcomes as excellent, before I would ask him to care for me.
I am retired and he is my, MD, confidant, and great listener..Medically excellent, he even laughs at my attempts at humor...I made the BEST CHOICE of Dr. Neilan...ABSOLUTELY!!… See more

Dr.Martin Neilan has been there for me most of my adult life. He has gotten me through some difficult times. He is very caring and compassionate.

He is genuinely concerned about my wellbeing. He… See more

from Pattie in NJ January 19, 2024 for Martin J. Neilan, MD

I have known Dr. Neilan before he was associated w/MDVIP. He has never changed over the years. Dr. Neilan is and always has been the most caring, helpful, sincere, understanding MD ever to be found. Never ever has he rushed a visit. I could never pick out just any one event, milestone or moment….theres just been way too many. One very good example is, our daughter moved out of state, she’s a… See more

Dr. Neilan has been our family physician for many years. He's a physician who has always taken his time w/his patients, acted w/compassion and
has never made me feel like there's 'a fire', no matter how serious a condition may be. His manner is just calming.

I had to contact Dr. Neilan from out of the country, gave him a short overview as to why I was calling… See more

One Saturday evening my wife and I were headed to meet family for a celebration. On the guessed it...we had a serious car accident. Our car was hit from behind and sent across 3 lanes of the highway, hit the cement barrier head-on and traveled back 3 lanes to come to rest on the shoulder of the highway. We were taken to an emergency room and sent home very early the next morning… See more
