Healthcare should be preventive.
If you only go to the Doctor when something is wrong, then something is already wrong! We believe in providing our patients with in-depth advanced screenings, where we look for all kinds of early signs of problems.
According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 900,000 Americans die prematurely from the five leading causes of death – yet 20 percent to 40 percent of the deaths from each cause could be prevented. The study also suggests that the numbers may be even higher, if preventable conditions which lead to other causes of death were able to be included.
We believe that one of the most important factors in these tragic deaths is the lack of thorough and regular advance screenings. Simply put, if you receive regular wellness checks, we can find early warning signs at the best time to begin care.
Also, Worth Magazine has named the MDVIP advance screening in the top 10 best Executive Wellness Programs.

The human body works together amazingly well. You cannot just take care of a piece of it and expect to be healthy. Nutrition, fitness, preventive medicine, pharmacy, and treatments of illness and injuries are ALL vital parts of wellness. Can you imagine if you took care of all your car’s maintenance needs except for changing the oil? Or if you built a REALLY strong fence around a pasture, but left large gaps? Of course not! That doesn’t make sense and neither does leaving gaps in your healthcare. We examine our patients for all aspects of their physical health!
One of the most important aspects of individual health is simply knowing how to be healthy. We take every opportunity to educate our patients on WHY something has a positive or negative effect on their health. Plus, it’s a proven fact that patients who do know “the why” behind “the what” are more likely to be successful.
In a study conducted by Boston University, researchers found that patients who were properly educated on their treatment plans were 30% less likely to need immediate further care, which of course saves everyone time and money. Knowledge is Power!
