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.

Ralph is extremely comprehensive. He is objective in his analysis and is sincere with respect to his interest in long term health. Ralph has prescribed a wellness plan for me based on my age, habits, laboratory results, and lifestyle. He is accessible and easily approachable.

from John in PA March 2, 2018 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

I would recommend Dr. Lanza, because he is unusual in the today's world of modern medicine. He really, really cares about you.

from George in PA March 1, 2018 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

Dr lanzas Personal attention to detail and complete interest in my health is much appreciated. He takes whatever time he needs to do a complete exam every time and answers every Q. Never feel like I am in a doctor office rather talking to a good friend. He is the absolute best.

from Thomas in PA March 1, 2018 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

As a senior (76), I have had many visits to doctors here and in Spain (where I have a house).By far, the best listener and most observant has been Dr Lanza.I credit the improvement in my health over the past 3 years has been the results of his care and wise direction to other doctor specialists.

from Gerald in PA March 1, 2018 for Ralph A. Lanza, MD, FACP

As a lifelong Red Sox fan, I'm generally not a big fan of Yankees fans such as Dr. Lanza! However, given his sincere and compassionate health care for my family and me over many years - I've had to make an exception for him! We feel blessed to have him as a doctor and friend and selfishly hope he never retires...
