My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The practice of medicine is both an art and a science. Each patient is an individual with their own distinctive issues. The MDVIP model, that emphasizes wellness and personalized care, will allow me to explore the science and practice the art of medicine with each patient.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Lanza

from Carol in PA September 2, 2020 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I have been going to Dr. Lanza since before he was an MDVIP doc. I think I can honestly say that all of us who are his patients think he is the absolutely best doc in the world and we all think he treats each of us as if we are his only and most important patient. He is the most amazing physician I have ever met both in expertise and bedside manner and true sincere caring about his patients.… See more

from Anna Marie in PA March 23, 2020 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I have been a patient of Dr. Lanza for over 25 years. He is the most caring and concerned doctor I have ever known. During one of my visits, I happened to mention in passing if he would look at a spot on my leg. Without hesitation, after observing it, he was on the phone calling a dermatologist for an appointment for me. The dermatologist determined that I had a melanoma and was scheduled… See more

from Carol in PA March 18, 2020 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

What I love about Dr. Lanza is that I am a partner in my own health and well-being. My thoughts matter, my choices matter, my input matters and Dr. Lanza works with me in creating my health, and health is something you must create through a healthy lifestyle. I never feel that he just tells me what to do or what should be done without asking me my thoughts. He considers my input very seriously… See more

from gary in PA March 11, 2020 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I had been bothered by congestion for a few months in the spring of 2017. Dr Lanza had seen me and treated me for the congested feeling I had. About a month later, after returning from a vacation, I contacted Dr. Lanza again telling him that my symptoms had not gone away, and made an appointment to see him. The morning appointment turned out to be more than a checkup. He again asked me what I… See more

from Paula June 11, 2018 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I have been a long-time patient of Dr. Lanza's and joined MDVIP when he first started this program. I appreciate the time and care that he is able to provide and feel that he is invested in encouraging me to fulfill my healthcare goals. He has helped me through some dark times and has never waivered in his support of me. His nature allows me to be open and honest about what I am… See more
