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
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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.

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

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
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

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
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
Dr. Blomgren has consistently provided proactive health care for me. I have know him for over 30 years and have a lot to be thankful to him for. Just for starters, he detected a cancer early and probably saved my life! Not much to say after that except that I think he is a great doctor and I will always be appreciative for the care that he has given me. You are the best Peter!
