Scarsdale, N.Y., during the late 1940s and 1950s was then a somnolent suburb of New York City, where Al Zook in his olive green mail truck and police Lt. Faulkner, in his black, manual shift patrol car (that he seemed never to take out of second gear) were familiar daily sights, but so was Dr. Buchman in his black four-door Buick, black physician's bag in hand, walking paths to homes making his rounds.

Almost all my childhood doctor experiences were with Dr. Buchman at our home, and MDVIP internal medicine harks back to those days when patient care was not an oxymoron and a personal relationship existed with the physician, who actually made eye contact and knew his patients without having to thumb through charts.

So it is with Dr. Temme, in Alexandria, Va., where a clock is not ticking, there is personal interest in the patient's health and one can actually speak with him directly on the phone or via email as opposed to the more common assembly line medicine of today where too many physicians create impenetrable firewalls between them and their patients.

Time and circumstances have changed, but MDVIP and Dr. Temme have found a means to combine modern medicine with personalized care as once existed in America. I can't imagine a better investment than MDVIP nor a physician more committed to patients than Joel Temme.
