My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Medical students are taught that if they listen to their patients, they will tell you what is wrong with them. The longer I have been a physician, the more I believe this is true. This means understanding not just what a person says, but also what they are trying to say. It no longer surprises me if I ask a patient what their diagnosis is, when they tell me and it turns out to be correct.

The most satisfying part of being a primary care physician is that patients usually come to me first. As a result, I see them with the widest variety of different situations, symptoms and concerns. I know many patients as well as I know close friends. I am in a position to listen to many different types of people from a vast array of backgrounds. It is an extraordinary privilege to not just be able to provide medical care but also to have them share with me their personal experiences. I can think of no other profession that has the advantage of this perspective. It is so excellently interesting and stimulating.

MDVIP has allowed me to continue to practice in a manner where taking time with patients and striving for excellence is rewarded. I want patients to feel satisfied with their care and how they are treated by me and my entire staff. I want them to feel that we have given them the best we have to help them work through an illness or avoid one by prevention. This model supports my relationship with my patients. I can think of nothing more rewarding.

from Jane in NC March 28, 2017 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Blomgren's for more than 30 years and honestly don't know where I would turn for good, knowledgeable, reliable and friendly medical advice. He has helped me through many health issues. I trust any suggestions and advice he gives me without question. He is a great diagnostician, but if he doesn't know the answers he doesn't hesitate to refer… See more

from Lee in NC March 24, 2017 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren is an excellent doctor. He listens to his patients, and he is very thorough in his explanations. My previous doctor simply would not listen to me. Dr. Blomgren is generous with his time and will call to follow up. He truly cares about his patients, and he treats them as if they are fellow human beings rather than their diseases or conditions. He takes an interest in their lives.… See more

from Terrie in NC February 16, 2014 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren is one of those Doctors (very few these days) that actually listens to what you are saying. Just carrying on a general conversation he listens and then puts it together with your exam. During one of my check-ups I had been having all kinds of weird things happening and by the end of the exam he was making an appointment with a cardiologist. I not sure another doctor would have… See more

from Ronnie in NC February 14, 2014 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

I've had an absolutely positive experience with my medical care from Dr. Blomgren since he inherited me from his retiring associate Dr. Keller. By the time of my first appointment, he had studied my file so thoroughly that he knew as much about me as I knew about myself. His Johnny Carson sense of humor matches perfectly with my sardonic wit. We communicate well, and, since I've… See more

from Sharon M in NC February 10, 2014 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren has always been a thorough and sensitive caring doctor. MDVIP did not change that. It just gave him more time to be even more thorough and comprehensive in his exams. He has been my doctor since I was about 20 years old. And making fun of me when I had inner ear problem because he knew I could not and still cannot swim, is just an example of how he makes his office visits as… See more

from Jane in NC February 10, 2014 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

When I have a need to see him the wait is short and I can rely on a professional and knowledgeable response. He is so thorough in diagnosing my symptoms and I just know I am in good hands. I have been preparing to travel and he has helped me… See more

from Angela in NC February 8, 2014 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren has been my doctor for over 30 years. He has detected problems when no one else could and I know that he has saved my life and is still doing that. He detected my first heart attack and sent me straight to the hospital. He listens and understands when you confide in him and makes things seem better. He has time to talk with you and to help you with any problems. His office… See more
