MDVIP saved my life

Member First Name
| April, 3 2024 | for Donald R. Watren, MD

I called Dr Watren's office. I had stepped in a puddle in flip flops. I had a scab on my foot and my leg became hot and swollen in just a day. The office staff got me in right away when i called. Dr Watren referred me to a foot surgeon right away and by the end of the day I was in JFK Hospital receiving IV antibiotics. I had a Nocardia Infection. 50% mortality, 75% if it got yo my lungs, 100% if it got to my brain. If I had to wait for even a day for an appointment with a regular PCP the results could have been fatal. I owe Dr Watren and his staff my life. I have been a patient in his practice for 25 years, even before he was in MDVIP. I am so grateful and lucky to havr him as my Health Care Provider.
