David H. Verbofsky, MD

Primary Care Doctor in Philadelphia, PA

I have spent my entire life in the Greater Philadelphia Region.  Growing up in Radnor, Pennsylvania, I spent summers as a camp counselor and used spare time to volunteer at the children’s hospital.  I attended Penn for undergraduate studies, and then headed across the city to Temple for medical school with the idea of pursuing a career in pediatrics.  As I progressed through my education, I realized that I had a greater interest in caring for adults.  In general internal medicine, I found that I enjoy forming therapeutic relationships with patients, and working with them to manage both acute and chronic illnesses.  I stayed at my medical alma mater, and completed a residency in internal medicine at Temple.  After training, I was selected to stay on as a Chief Resident and faculty member.  While I enjoyed teaching and mentoring residents, I preferred my time one-on-one with patients in the office, and I am now happy to provide patient-centered care at NSIM.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Amy and our families and friends.  Together we enjoy cooking and exploring new restaurants across the city.  I also enjoy spending time outdoors and reading science fiction.

COVID-19 Vaccine

We are pleased to announce that NSIM is partnering with Centennial Pharmacy Services to administer COVID vaccine shots in our office. We have worked closely with Centennial Pharmacy Services for many years and they are a trusted partner.

We do not know when our first doses of vaccine will arrive nor do we know how many doses we will get on a weekly basis. The number of people who want the vaccine is far greater than the supply Philadelphia receives weekly from the federal government.  We are following the Philadelphia Health Department prioritization phases in administering the vaccine. We anticipate it will take at least until the end of May or longer before the city has vaccinated all people over 65, those with chronic medical conditions, and those working in occupations essential to our economy.

If you want to receive the vaccine in our office when we receive a supply:

Register your interest

You will complete and submit a questionnaire. The information you submit is confidential and the only people who have access to it are the staff of NSIM and Centennial Pharmacy. It will be used only for the purpose of COVID vaccine administration and not for any marketing purposes or sold to any other entity. Once we know that we are receiving the vaccine, you will be contacted about an appointment time by Centennial Pharmacy either by text message, email, or phone (depending on your contact preference).


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 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.
