Steven M. Pounders, MD

Meet Steven M. Pounders, MD


My passion as your internal medicine physician is to provide you with personalized healthcare that is patient-centered and proactive. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and you will benefit from the full extent of my training and commitment to staying abreast of leading-edge medical treatments. As a primary care physician, I treat such conditions as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, migraines and most chronic diseases. I also see patients for HIV infection.  

As one of the few primary care doctors in Dallas offering this personalized healthcare approach, I provide a level of attention that can help you manage medical conditions and better live the happy, active life you deserve. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, also offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments. 

My primary care practice is located in Dallas, Texas, and currently serves Addison, Carrollton, Dallas, Highland Park, Irving, Plano, Richardson, University Park and all of North Texas. I also see patients with dual residency in other states including New York, California and Hawaii. I am affiliated with Baylor-Dallas, Texas Health Presbyterian and UT-Southwestern Hospitals.

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.
