My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I feel extremely blessed to have had the career that I have, serving the area I live in since 1994. I am deeply invested in my patient’s physical and emotional well-being and as a result have developed many close relationships. I cannot imagine my professional life could be any more gratifying. 

I strongly believe in treating each patient in a very personalized manner. This can only be done by being truly interested in and spending whatever time is required to understand the factors that play a part in one’s health. I have a particular interest in the impact emotional health has on physical health and spend a good deal of time discussing stress management and mindfulness. I am constantly try to learn more about ways to motivate patients to develop healthy habits. I have always tried to be as accommodating as possible. For years, many patients have had my cell phone number and have been able to contact me directly. To that end, I am very excited to be able to provide  care with the MDVIP model, which allows for more time with patients and resources to focus more on disease prevention.  My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.

I currently have privileges and admit patients to the two major teaching hospitals in New Brunswick; RWJ Barnabus and Saint Peters University Hospitals. Many internists no longer do rounds, but I feel it is crucial to maintain continuity of care through hospitalizations and to also maintain the skills that are required to care for acutely ill patients. I have been acknowledged for many years by New Jersey Monthly magazine as a Top Doctor.

About the Practice/Practice News

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.

I had been a patient of Dr Yager for several years before he became affiliated with MDVIP, so my decision to sign up with MDVIP was easy. I was always extremely confident in his diagnosis and recommended remedy as well as feeling like he really cared. Now as approaching 81 years of age, I have this amazingly physician available to me 24/7. It’s very comforting.

from Frank in NJ February 4, 2024 for Scott Yager, MD

My family have been patients of Dr. Yager for 30 years from our time with him in Old Bridge to today. When he left his practice in Old Bridge we followed him to East Brunswick and when he joined MDVIP it was a no-brainer to continue our relationship. What makes him very special to me is not only his humanness but the way he helped me when my wife of 48 years passed away in December 2019.… See more
