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.

Hi Doc. I want take this opportunity to once again thank you for all your care and hard work.  You're always quick to respond when I have a health problem. Like a couple of years ago when I had complications from my hernia operation. You were quick to respond to the urine infection while also reassuring me that you would fix it and I would be fine. Comforting words for your star whitecoat… See more

from Tanda in MO March 13, 2024 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr. Michael Monaco has been my PCP for 24 years. I trust him completely to make the best decisions for my health. Dr. Monaco is kind, positive, and encouraging. I always look forward to my annual physical, and I leave feeling optimistic about my health, both physical and mental. I dread the day he retires!

from Carol in MO March 11, 2024 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

My husband and I both love Dr. Monaco. He helped me loose30 pounds and just by allowing me to send him emails every week with my progress or my not so progress. The accountability I had to have to tell him about my successes and failures did wonders to help me to my goal. He was always supportive and encouraging even when I had failed.
It helps also that I trust his knowledge and… See more

When Dr. Monaco and I began our Physician-Patient relationship 12 years ago next month (April 2024), I had no idea how highly respected he was in general and in the medical community. Respect for him has only grown in both communities over those 12 years. As my MDVIP physician, Dr. Monaco has meticulously monitored my overall health, given me excellent advice, and been there when I needed him… See more

from Michael in KS March 1, 2024 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

I was in reasonably good health, but realized after a more thorough assessment by Dr. Monaco that I had plenty of room for improvement. Since then, I’m more fit, healthier, and happier physically and mentally. So happy he’s my doc!

He is extremely knowledgeable and maintains a great rapport with his patients. I can always reach him in case of an emergency and he is highly responsive. I don’t know what I would do without him as my physician!!

from Mark in KS March 1, 2024 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Mike is the best of the best, he really cares about you.
Over more than 2 decades I have grown to love this man and his mannerisms, he has my 3 boys and brother in his MDVIP program plus dozens of referrals over the years, they all say the same thing "Mike is AMAZING"
He is slow to judge & quick to help, my quality of life is a direct result of his consultations… See more

from Trudy in KS February 21, 2024 for Michael E. Monaco, MD

Dr. Michael Monaco is so much more than my MD-VIP doctor, he is my friend, confidant and counselor. He was my parent’s physician before he opened his MD-VIP practice. He was adored by my family and provided them with amazing care until their deaths. I joined Dr. Monaco’s practice many years ago when he became part of MD-VIP. He has seen me through all phases of my life, good and bad. He is… See more

Dr. Mike has a wealth of knowledge and experience and knows my health history well. I am thankful that he is so skilled

Dr. Monaco is the best Dr. I've had in my 70+ years and I've been around a lot of physicians in a professional capacity. He is patient and detailed in his explanation and answers the questions I've compiled over the previous year. I also like that he is sports medicine oriented and can comment on my workouts and any related health and fitness goals for an ageing athlete. I… See more
