Meet Robert A. Carrellas, MD


As a family physician for the past 29 years, perhaps the most important skill I have learned is to listen carefully to my patients. The essence of any good doctor-patient relationship begins with good communication. Maintaining and improving quality of life should be a collaborative effort between the patient and physician. My goal is to provide excellent medical care in a relaxed, compassionate environment in which I have ample time to address all health concerns. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I aim to deliver personalized care focusing on wellness and enhanced preventive care.  Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. 

Throughout my professional career I have tried to set an example for my patients by embracing an active lifestyle, emphasizing exercise, sports participation and the health benefits of spending time in nature.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doctors who operate in the MDVIP models typically see far fewer patients than traditional primary care doctors. That gives them more time to develop deeper doctor-patient relationships that can lead to better outcomes. They can also offer conveniences that most primary care doctors can’t, including same- and next-day appointments. They’re available after hours for urgent matters. And they have time to focus on prevention. That focus begins with the MDVIP Wellness Program, which patients pay for with their annual membership fee.

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

I was one of the many caregivers for my brother (David) who had been diagnosed with ALS. Dr. Bob was his doctor as well as mine and others in my family. Suffice it to say that David's care was a full time job with round the clock attention needed and supplied by various family members and privately hired CNA's. He was living on a respirator at this point and completely paralyzed with Read more...

Dr Carrellas, Middletown RI

from David in RI • March 12, 2020
Dr Carrellas is the first doctor that I have had in years that has taken the time and trouble to explain what the problem is,what we’re going to do and why, which being an engineer is important to me. He is also very personable and friendly in his manner. He and his office personnel make visits to his office something to look forward to.

Thank You Dr. Carrellas

from Charles in RI • March 12, 2020
Last September I had a gastrointestinal issue that no one could seem to figure out quite what it was. At any rate Dr. Carrellas stuck with it and kept digging in with the test results and followed up with the doctors. He was great. While, the care I get from Dr. Carrellas is a little more expensive, it is so worth it to me.
