My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have strived to create a practice environment that is unhurried, friendly and comfortable where my patients feel welcome and never rushed. My practice style has always been to try to provide comprehensive medical care to my patients by listening to all of their concerns while demonstrating compassion and patience. Ten years ago, the US healthcare system was declared "broken" and it has not improved. Fixes that are needed have not materialized. Premiums are increasing and the hassles for both patients and physicians keep rising. We all know how medicine should be. I invite you to see how medicine can be and is being practiced everyday at my office.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Monaco

from Rebecca in KS March 26, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

It's often stated, it's not what we have in life, but who we have that matters. Dr. Monaco has been my primary care doctor for about 20 years, so well before his MDVIP practice began. I didn't think twice about continuing as his patient. In about a month, I will be a 5 year cancer survivor. Dr. Monaco has been there for me with EVERY step of that journey - even went to my… See more

from Jeff in KS March 18, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

The Kansas City Chiefs are lucky to have Dr. Monaco as their team physician. I know first hand the dedication and commitment he has for his profession.

He is always quick to help out if I have a problem and has kept me in good health over the years.

The players and I aren't the only lucky ones. Years ago, my friend was suffering from severe medical problems. When Dr. Monaco… See more

from Diane and Quentin in KS March 14, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

In the years we've been treated by Dr. Monaco, he's always been available beyond office hours to text or call regardless of the time of day or night. He has, in our mind, kept us healthy through his very, very thorough physicals. We have complete confidence in his ability to treat both of us and keep us healthy as we age. He has, on occasion detected symptoms missed by other… See more

from Frederick and Carol in KS March 14, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Fortunately, neither my wife nor I have had a serious life threatening health issue such as occurred in your example story from a gentleman named Dwight. But, we've had many ups and downs in our health history, instances of influenza, pneumonia, some mood issues due to changing brain chemistry and a plethora of colds and sprains and aches and pains, some of which might have been as much… See more

from Mary in KS March 12, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr Monaco has been by my side throughout my Stage Three Rectal Cancer survivorship, helping me live my best life with my new, post-treatment body. He has talked ER doctors through possible blockages to make sure I get the best care even when I am not in the KC Metro. He has a lot to juggle as the quarterback of my care, but he always shows up for me with competent, compassionate care. Thank… See more

I’ve only been a A patient of Dr. Monaco for about 15 months. In this short amount of time he has changed the trajectory of my life, and I feel better than I have in years. My diet has improved, my numbers have all improved, I’ve lost weight, I have an improved attitude, and a general improved since of well being.

Dr. Monaco’s tests are much more in depth and insightful then any I can… See more

My husband and i were patients of Dr. Monaco many years before he went to MDVIP. We couldn't see any other choice rather to stay with him. I have several health issues and he has been proactive and accessible any time night or day. My husband was diagnosed with Diabetes a few years ago and Dr. Monaco took such an interest in getting him back to Diabetes health that he is now… See more

from Charliees in KS March 10, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Twenty plus years ago my daughter was in college and working in a clinic and I had complained that my doctor seemed to just come in, go back out, always in a hurry and didn't really take the time to evaluate, etc. Her suggestion was that I make a non-medical appointment with Mike Monaco. She thought that he and I would hit it off. Well, that may have been the best decision I ever made… See more

It makes me comfortable to know that Dr. Monaco is at the end of the text or direct phone call if I have questions or a problem. Having that access is important to me. His annual physical is interesting and complete... and he explains everything in detail. I am very happy with his care.

from Valerie in MO March 2, 2020 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr. Monaco has always made me feel like an individual - not like a number as I have with other doctors. He takes the time to truly talk through my health challenges and to make thoughtful suggestions for ways to improve my issues while also recognizing and appreciating the reality of what is practical. He has a very caring approach and is open to my desire to involve nature/alternative… See more
