My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal, as your physician, is to partner with you to create personalized healthcare plans which will more effectively manage your health problems and work to prevent new ones. I realize that each of my patients have differing medical needs and social situations which impact their health. Together we can make informed decisions on how to address your specific medical needs and goals for your future.

With over 30 years of medical practice in the Charlotte community, I have longstanding relationships with many of our fine specialists which will help you get the most comprehensive care for your unique problems. As you may know, I have many years of practice experience in geriatrics, rehabilitation and long term care health management. On a personal note, I have a great interest and knowledge in cardiovascular health, diabetes and preventive care.

from Thomas in NC March 12, 2020 for William J. Long, MD

Dr. Long is a genuine throwback to the days of the doctor coming to your home with his characteristic black bag. While it is so that I am the one who has to go to him, Dr. Long's patience and non-rushed ways truly set him apart. And the staff? They're mirrors of Dr. Long. Don't know what I'd do without the whole team. Dr. Long -- you have my deepest thanks and gratitude.… See more

I have been under Dr. Long's care for many years and was glad to follow him when he became part of MDVIP.

He ask me about my family and identifies each by name.… See more
