Wen Yang, MD, PhD, FACP

Meet Wen Yang, MD, PhD, FACP


I have always been a firm believer in preventive medicine and personalized health care. A legendary Chinese physician, Bian Que, once said, “Great physicians are the ones treating illness before it occurs.” The MDVIP model allows me to put more effort on disease prevention and wellness care.

As a primary care physician, I treasure the close relationships developed with patients and want to spend more time with each patient to listen to their story, carefully review records, perform comprehensive exams, and formulate personalized treatment plans. I am experienced in the management of obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and other chronic illness. I am especially interested in cardiovascular disease and cancer 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 have also done extensive medical research to have a deeper understanding on the mechanisms of diseases. I am committed to providing my patients with the latest medical knowledge and personal medical care. My practice is located Houston’s Memorial City area and I am fluent in English and Mandarin.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
