The MDVIP Difference
More Than Just a Doctor, A Partner in Health
MDVIP and our nationwide network of affiliated primary care doctors deliver a better healthcare experience to more than a quarter million patients around the country. How is it better? Our approach to medicine is personalized and puts YOU first.
In a typical internal and family medicine practice, the doctor sees an average of 18 patients a day. Some doctors see many more. That’s why it takes so long to get an appointment, why waiting rooms are so full and why the visits are so short. MDVIP-affiliated doctors have much smaller practices. They see an average of 8 to 10 patients a day — so they have more time. This means:
- You will get an appointment with your doctor the same or next day instead of waiting weeks, the average waiting time for a appointment at a traditional primary care practice.
- Your appointments will start on time - you won’t be stuck in the lobby waiting an hour for your visit to begin.
- You’ll see your doctor, not some other provider.
- You’ll be able to reach your doctor after hours for urgent care needs.
When you see your doctor, you won’t be rushed out of the exam room. You’ll have time to talk about all your health concerns and get your questions answered. And your doctor will work with you one-on-one to help you stay well and prevent illness.
Each year your physician will take you through the MDVIP Wellness Program, which is paid for by your annual membership fee ranging from $1,650 to $2,200.* This comprehensive health assessment program includes advanced medical tests and health screenings typically not covered by commercial insurance or Medicare. You and your doctor will use these test results to create a customized wellness plan to help you achieve your health goals.
*The annual fee for MDVIP-affiliated practices varies based on locale. You can find a physician's fee on their page.
I could never go back to a regular doctor again.
James, a patient of of Linda A. Groene, MD, FACP
Dr. Groene is an amazing person and a good doctor. Since I have been seeing her, I am completely spoiled. I could never go back to a regular doctor again. I think the thing that most stands out about Dr. Groene is she genuinely cares about me and my health. It just comes through and you know her concern is real. If I need anything, I can always reach her on her cell phone. In an age of automated everything and impersonal fast food service, I get Marcus Welby type care from her.
I rarely have to wait in the doctor’s waiting room.
Greg, a patient of Dr. David R. Carver, MD
Since joining MDVIP, I rarely have to wait in the doctor’s waiting room. In fact, his staff is usually ready for me when I arrive. They seem to be much more organized and in a happy workplace. It is very relaxed and cheerful in his office. When I see Dr. Carver, he is always very thorough and patient. I feel like my healthcare has changed from totally initiated by me to a proactive system of maintenance that is managed by a professional group.
