My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
The MDVIP practice model, sometimes referred to as concierge medicine, gives me the time to investigate and the tools to screen for and uncover many silent illnesses, that if found early, can be dealt with effectively and truly make a difference. The comprehensive, annual MDVIP Wellness Program includes advanced screenings focused on key areas, such as heart health, bone health, sleep, stress, nutrition and respiratory issues. As my patients' personal doctor, I encourage very open and casual relationships and am available 24 hours a day by cell phone for urgent needs. My patients also have their own website to communicate with me securely and confidentially by email, and I can send copies of test results and reports. This type of relationship with attention to detail, open communication, understanding and continuity is what I aim to deliver to each patient in my primary care practice on a daily basis.
My practice is located in Glen Burnie, Maryland and serves patients from the entire Baltimore-Annapolis corridor and surrounding areas, including Severna Park and Millersville. I am affiliated with the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, which is part of the University of Maryland Medical System. My specialized interests include adult medicine, preventive medicine and wellness, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and internal medicine. If you would like to learn more about my personalized healthcare practice and the MDVIP Wellness Program, please make a complimentary appointment.

I have a short story. I went to see my doctor before going on vacation out of the country with major cold symptoms. He prescribed an antibiotic, cough syrup, and a steroid.. After 7 days I was no better or worse. I sent him a message via MDVIP website, he responded immediately. He was able to call the pharmacy where I was and order another antibiotic and an inhaler which saw me through… See more

This is the completion of my first year with Dr. Ramirez after joining the VIP program and I must say it has been highly positive and beneficial to me.

Here are 2 examples of how my health and health care have drastically improved:
First, while taking… See more
While I am a patient of Dr. Peter Ramirez and I am extremely pleased with both the preventive and immediate care that he provides, I think that the measure of Dr. Ramirez as a doctor is best exemplified by the way he took care of my father who just recently passed away.
My father was a patient of Dr. Ramirez for the last 10 years of his life. He was not a well man but you would never… See more

We already liked and appreciated our doctor before MDVIP. His taking the time to really listen to us and to explain things to us impressed us a lot. One difference now with MDVIP is that he has more time to spend with us. Another thing we like is being able to communicate with him by email and knowing we will get a prompt reply. Of course, his friendly manner is still a plus, before and… See more
In treating both my husband and myself, Dr. Ramirez explains clearly the importance of our test results and how we can improve our health. He has always responds quickly to any problems, we both feel like he knows us well, and we are grateful he is younger than ourselves so that he will be our physician as we age. Dr. Ramirez has always had these qualities, but MDVIP has allowed him more… See more
