Hi, Dr. Zeale. As you know, I joined MDVIP only because I did not want to lose you as my doctor. Now that I can't get to New York to see you, I sometimes question my membership. But I really like the way you communicate and make sensible choices and, with this structure, can take more time with me than the other doctors I occasionally see in Woodstock and Anna Maria, Florida.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
In my personalized healthcare practice, similar to a concierge practice, I have time to work closely with all of my patients and tailor their care to their unique needs and goals. For the past 25 years, I have been recognized as one of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” in New York.
My office is conveniently located on the lower west side of Manhattan, and I am affiliated with New York University Medical Center. I care for patients in the immediate area, as well as surrounding neighborhoods, including Chelsea, Gramercy, Midtown, Tribeca, Flatiron, Murray Hill, Union Square, East Village, West Village and the tristate region.
I take pride in having an exceptional and attentive office staff who know my patients on a personal level. As a private doctor, my patients have peace of mind knowing I am available for same-day or next-day appointments, as well as by cell phone for urgent needs. In addition to primary care, I also focus on prevention and treatment of hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. I aim to partner with my patients to understand and solve their medical problems through early interventions and wellness counseling.

Dear Dr. Zeale,
Thank you for diagnosing me with Lyme disease back in 1997; I finally had a cause for my ~ 40 accumulated signs & symptoms that had been plaguing me for 4 years! No other MD had thought of it until then.

I had been a patient of Dr, Jeff Silver in Chestnut Hill, MA. He was wonderful.
However, I had made the decision to move to NYC and had no choice but to find another physician. I was very hesitant when I began with Dr. Zeale in NYC. Having such a great relationship with Dr. Silver, I knew it was going to be difficult to get used to someone new. However, the first day I went to his… See more
It has been a wonderful experience having Dr. Zeale as my primary doctor. I have had very easy access to appointments and my requests by phone have been answered with amazing speed. Dr. Zeale has been very through in explaining things so that they are understood. He has given me excellent referrals to other doctors and his staff is warm and friendly.
The Trump administration is considering making fee-based primary care options like MDVIP more affordable for seniors.
