About MDVIP

MDVIP was born in 2000 from an idea that started in the minds of forward-thinking primary care doctors who felt the healthcare system was losing its way. They knew there was a better way to practice medicine and provide the level of care and attention their patients deserved.

That idea reignited the passion for medicine in doctor after doctor, year after year. Now, MDVIP is the leader in personalized healthcare with a network of more than 1,000 primary care physicians across the country who care for more than 325,000 patients. We believe:

  • Healthcare should always put the patient first.
  • Medical care is not one-size-fits-all.
  • Doctors should have time to get to know patients beyond their symptoms.
  • Appointments should not come with time limits.
  • In the type of primary care that improves health and lives.
  • In MDVIP.

From our CEO, a veteran innovator in the healthcare industry; our Medical Directors, physicians themselves; our Legal team, experts on the latest healthcare regulations; to our patient care representatives, who talk about MDVIP every day, we all believe in the MDVIP difference.

Meet the folks who lead our mission to help primary care physicians provide life-changing personalized preventive care so patients can lead healthier and more vibrant lives.

Think about the last wellness checkup you had. How much one-on-one time did you have with the doctor? Did you feel rushed? Did you talk about prevention? Did you leave with a detailed action plan for your health and understand the next steps?

In most annual health screenings and checkups, a nurse takes your vitals, records your medications and asks a few questions about your medical history. She may also screen you for certain risk factors, such as smoking. Following your physical exam, your doctor may recommend some follow-up tests, draw your blood and send you on your way with the suggestion that you lose a few pounds or continue taking your vitamins. This is all that time allows.

With more time devoted to less patients, MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices can go beyond basic. Each year your doctor will take you through the MDVIP Wellness Program, which is paid for by your membership fee. You will receive comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that have been shown to help detect issues earlier but are not typically covered by commercial insurance or Medicare. The results help give a clearer view of your overall health.

You and your doctor will discuss your health test results in detail. You’ll know your numbers and your doctor will help you understand what those numbers mean and how they can be improved. Together, you’ll develop an individualized action plan that will include next steps, how progress will be measured and a time frame for follow up.

Whether you’re managing a chronic illness, have a family history of disease or consider yourself the picture of health, there’s always room for improvement. This is what the MDVIP Wellness Program is all about — identifying and addressing your unique needs so you can focus on living your best.

The MDVIP Wellness Program Measures:

  • Heart Health
  • Bone Health
  • Vision
  • Sexual Health
  • Diabetes
  • Sleep
  • Hearing
  • Weight Management
  • Respiratory Health
  • Nutrition and Fitness
  • Emotional Well-Being

Here are examples of what could be included in your personalized wellness plan:

  • Meal plans, recipes and shopping lists if you’re following a diet that can help prevent or manage diabetes or cholesterol levels;
  • Customized exercise videos tailored to your fitness level if osteoporosis or re-injuring your back is a concern;
  • A nutrition and fitness plan that can actually help you lose weight and finally keep it off.

Even if you’re in the best shape of your life, MDVIP’s Wellness Program can help you maintain good health and avoid some of the problems that come with aging through early detection. In short, the MDVIP Wellness Program is a comprehensive tool to help you and your doctor map out a health plan specific to you. It reflects your test results AND your health goals. Published studies have shown that the MDVIP personalized preventive care approach leads to better health outcomes and can help keep you out of the ER and the hospital.

Other advantages of membership in an MDVIP-affiliated practice include:

 

 

COVID-19 Vaccine


We are sorry to inform you that, although we had originally planned to partner with Centennial Pharmacy Services to administer the COVID 19 vaccine shots in our office, we will be unable to
do so.

We realize that this is disappointing to many of you, as we were hoping to make it easy for our patients to obtain the vaccine. However, the Philadelphia Health Department has decided to not distribute COVID Vaccine through physician offices but to focus instead on retail pharmacies, large mega-sites, collaborative arrangements with community groups, places of worship and large hospital systems.

We recommend that you go to the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Philadelphia Health department websites as well as those neighborhood pharmacies to find a vaccination location near you to schedule your shot. See the links below. If you are physically unable to leave your home, call our office and we can help you arrange to have a nurse come to your home to administer the vaccine.

Please be sure to let us know when you’ve been fully vaccinated and we will update your health record.

WE URGE ALL OF OUR PATIENTS TO GET THE VACCINE. If you have any concerns about the safety, effectiveness, rapidity of development or other issues regarding the COVID vaccines, please contact your primary care provider at NSIM.

Please be sure to let us know when you’ve been fully vaccinated and we will update your health record. Once you have been vaccinated, please follow the CDC guidelines to fully protect yourself and others. https://ww.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines.fully-vaccinated.html

Please be patient. No one will be truly safe until everyone in our country who desires the vaccine has received it.  Please continue to wear your mask when outside of your home, maintain social distance, wash your hands, and follow other guidelines from the health department and CDC. Once you receive the vaccine, you will need to strictly maintain these precautions at all times until our public health officials tell us otherwise.

Wishing you good health,

The NSIM and MDVIP physicians, Nurse practitioners, and Staff
