My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In my private practice, I help my patients gain control of their health and lead longer, healthier lives using early detection of illness and personalized wellness plans. It is the close partnership between us that will help you reach your wellness goals. A small practice allows me more time to work closely with my patients to develop unique approaches that are customized to their individual needs. My job as your physician is to educate, coach, support and guide you on a path to a healthier, happier life.

My goal is to help my patients achieve greater health and happiness by first discovering where they are, establishing what they wish for in a health care relationship and then creating real, achievable goals. As a Family Medicine physician, this has been my approach before becoming an MDVIP-affiliated physician. But now, I am confident that we will have the time and tools to make this a reality at every visit in my personalized care practice.

I have taken my own approach to health very seriously, with regular exercise. I am avid about racquetball, walking and hiking. I also pay serious attention to my diet, incorporating vegetarianism and fish into my diet. I know there is not one diet appropriate for everyone and among the many varieties of healthful eating, I support whichever one is life-supporting for my patient. I am a proponent of meditation as a technique for living more fully. I have a background in Ayurvedic medicine, which, in the appropriate circumstances, can be used to treat common conditions. My MDVIP practice, sometimes referred to as a concierge medicine practice, is located in Burtonsville, Maryland; easily accessible from Silver Spring, Laurel, Columbia and Rockville.

Dr. Ginsberg makes caring for myself an enjoyable task. He is always willing to listen. He explains a health or unhealthy condition using graphics, which I love,
since I am a visual learner. He is always open to natural alternatives rather than prescription drugs, whenever possible. I am very satisfied with the practice as a whole health community that I can count on, hence I have been a… See more

This doctor is all about money. These people are money hungry and don't care about their patients' well being. I was very disappointed.

from Keith in MD March 28, 2017 for Robert J. Ginsberg, MD

Dr. Ginsberg is not only a great Dr. with the patient/Dr. relationship that all Drs should strive for. He is extremely qualified and you will feel very comfortable around him the first time you meet him. Just a down to earth guy!!! Oh, and BTW, he has some good jokes too. I wish him the very best and will be a patient until I croak.
