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.

After being diagnosed with skin cancer I have had a very hard time trying to learn how to take care of myself and protect my life!

A Doctor that Goes Beyond a Doctor

Dr Herrington has been our doctor for many years; treating me, my mother, and my children and extended family at various times through the years. There are plenty of stories of appreciation that I could share throughout the years, but none will compare to when I was going through the darkest time of my life.
Sharing such private and traumatic events with strangers may seem odd or too Read more...

Dr H literally saved my life!

from Kim in AL • January 18, 2024
It was late April of 2020, my husband/father of my children had just unexpectedly passed away in January. I had been experiencing shortness of breath for a while.
