“Today’s healthcare environment has unfortunately become too focused on assembly line medicine. MDVIP shares in my vision to emphasize the quality of care rather than the quantity of patients seen in a day. Through my affiliation with MDVIP, the national leaders in personalized healthcare, I am excited to further enhance the level of care I am able to provide to my patients”

- Dr. Jeffrey P. Friedman


What is MDVIP?

MDVIP stands for Medical Doctor Value In Prevention. It is a medical model that focuses on a tailored health and wellness plan for the patient, giving you access to your provider 24/7. You and your MDVIP-affiliated doctor will form a partnership focused on better health and overall well-being that starts on day one. Reach your doctor anytime, anywhere, whether it’s a simple question or an unexpected emergency.

Personalized Care

Access to a limited MDVIP Community offers patients the ability to have an office visit whenever they need it, with no wait time and longer visits. Even when you’re away from home, your personalized care will follow you regardless of where you are. A large network of MDVIP doctors are available to you nationwide, in addition to video conferencing options with your primary care physician.

Preventative Care and Wellness Program

Preventing illness before it develops is the key to taking control of your life. MDVIP gives you the opportunity to proactively focus on preventive care through wellness evaluations, advanced diagnostics and testing not covered by insurance, as well as fitness and nutritional counseling. Working side-by-side, your MDVIP Physician will develop a comprehensive Wellness Plan made just for you.



Not Ready To Become A MDVIP Member? Not A Problem!

You can still be a part of our community by scheduling an appointment with any one of our three non-MDVIP providers  in our Community Health practice.
