My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Quality healthcare takes TIME. My MDVIP-affiliated practice gives me more TIME to listen, more TIME to care, more TIME to think, more TIME to focus on your care, more TIME to discuss your care with the appropriate consulting physicians, more TIME to guide you through the complex medical labyrinth our healthcare system has become, more TIME to detect problems early, more TIME to target prevention, and more TIME to be your “old-fashioned” doctor practicing modern, up-to-date, cutting-edge medicine. 

I strive to develop a strong doctor-patient relationship, assessing your medical needs and counseling you on the best evidence-based path to achieve your goals. I also focus on prevention to promote healthy lifestyles. The MDVIP model mirrors my ideals of giving you quality healthcare, preventive care and all the time it takes to do both jobs in a slower, deliberate and more personal manner. 

I have a talented and caring staff who welcome you with open arms and smiling faces into our office. My staff and I help manage your care and review and implement a treatment plan. The bonds we form with our patients are one of the most rewarding aspects of practicing personalized care. The MDVIP model has given me the ability to care for you in a manner that is difficult to find in a traditional medical office. I am honored and privileged to be an MDVIP-affiliated physician.

The time Dr. Merlino now has to treat me has expanded. AND the time I spend waiting is now zero. Dr. Merlino was a wonderful physician prior to MDVIP, the now she can treat me more effectively and build a wellness plan.

from Eileen February 1, 2012 for Robin B. Merlino, MD

Dr. Merlino and I have been addressing my cholesterol levels. When she recommended I go on a statin medication I was horrified. This is for old people, I thought. I had in the past successfully lowered my cholesterol, by diet and exercise, however as she put it, I was not consistent in these efforts to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. The lab values and the CMT test did not lie either… See more
