We've been patients of Dr. Paige Walend for years - even before she was affiliated with MDVIP. There was no hesitation on our part to join her practice once she became a part of the MDVIP program. Her knowledge, responsiveness, caring and compassion set her apart from all others. My husband has some rare medical issues and she is always willing to explore treatment options with him… See more

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Walend
Dr Walend ensured I was seen same day even when she was out on vacation with her daughter. She followed up and saw that every aspect of my care was followed up on. When you are in her office for a visit you know she pays close attention to all of your needs. She explains your test results in great detail. I changed my unhealthy habits and am now much healthier than I have been in 20 years… See more
Dr. Paige Walend is exceptional!
Dr. Paige Walend is so much more than an exceptional physician. She is genuine in her interest in my family's wellbeing and goes above and beyond in the care she provides. Words don't adequately describe how truly fortunate we are to have her as our PCP. I trust Dr. Walend implicitly with my challenging post-military service healthcare needs… See more
Whenever I need to see Dr Walend I never feel unwelcome or pushed to end my appointment. She is thorough, spends time, and shares a part of herself. It does not hurt that she has a great sense of humor. Going to the doctor is no longer a chore to be endured.
Dr. Walend is a person who truly cares about her patients. During appointments she treats me like I'm the only patient she has for the day. She really listens and understands my situation. I have heavily relied on Dr. Walend to help me cope with the side effects from Androgen Deprivation Therapy, of which there have been many. I especially appreciate that I can email her with questions… See more
I want to say that any time I call, Dr. Walend and/or Suzie get back to me very soon. When I am in the office Dr. Walend takes the time to talk to me and to listen to my needs. I am always contacted after tests have been run and they give my a report and any instructions I need. Thanks to a great group.
Dr. Walend has been my physician for about 22 years & I can't praise her enough. She listens carefully to what I have to say, acknowledges my thoughts & provides valuable medical advice while being thoughtful, caring & sensitive. I hope I live a long time so I get to see her many more times. Also, she has a wonderful staff who are also great to work with. I am so grateful… See more
Finding amazing doctors is hard - you've all made it EASY!
So glad to be a part of the MDVIP program and what it brings to the table in terms of health. InBody scans, thorough annual wellness exams are great and useful - but nothing replaces the care and quality of the staff!
Dr. Walend is caring, looks at the quality of life components and has a wonderful bedside manner… See more
This Doc...Dr. Paige Walend...she is the best! I have never known a physician quite like her. She is the best listener...the best responder...and one who always looks for the best outcome(s). Dr Walend understands that achieving good health is multi-faceted. She is my advocate for physical, mental, and emotional health so that I can be the best I can be in my “60’s decade”. I’ve appreciated… See more
It is almost impossible to say how much appreciation I have for Dr. Walend and her staff. Under her care, I have received more support than I have previously, ever had from a physician. Dr. Walend cares about her patients which is evidenced by the time she takes in each appointment and by the depth of interest she exhibits in my overall health and well being. The staff and particularly her… See more
