MDVIP is a preventive and personalized primary-care medicine company headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. MDVIP is one of the leading customized healthcare companies, having a network of around 1,000 primary care physicians throughout the country who care for more than 325,000 patients. They aim to provide quality care and attention that each patient deserves. Each MDVIP's physician cares for up to 600 patients as opposed to 2,500 to 3,500 average patients in traditional primary care practice.
Patients of MDVIP receive a comprehensive physical examination with a follow-up wellness plan. They also provide electronic medical records as well as a personalized patient portal (with a focus on diet, exercise, and doctor communication, among others). They also offer additional patient benefits, including acute-care visits with same- or next-day availability, 24/7 physician availability, on-time appointments, and coordination of specialty care.
In June 2014, the growth-equity investor Summit Partners acquired MDVIP from Procter & Gamble. In November 2017, Leonard Green & Partners acquired MDVIP's majority ownership.
MDVIP stands by its mission of providing personalized, preventive care covering a broad spectrum of patient's lives.

- are dedicated to fundamental care innovations,
- want to introduce MDVIP to their consumer base, and
- offer MDVIP's Wellness Program to their members as either a subsidized or fully covered health benefit

We have written an article, “How Do You Promote Wellness In The Workplace? (Why Employee Wellness Matters),” which explains how you can develop a wellness culture in your workplace and why employee wellness is vital to company productivity.
MDVIP believes primary care can be the agent of change in healthcare. They believe that doctor–patient relationships matter and people matter. Likewise, they believe that
- healthcare should always put patients first,
- medical care is not one-size-fits-all,
- doctors should get to know patients beyond their symptoms,
- appointments should not come with time limits, and
- primary care should improve health and lives.
MDVIP is the leading company in affordable and personalized preventive care. Through their primary care doctors’ knowledge and expertise, MDVIP empowers each patient to lead healthier lives. At the same time, MDVIP enables physicians to practice medicine while still having the time to pursue their interests and attain financial stability in the unpredictable healthcare setup.
MDVIP offers a secure and proven solution to the challenges in the complex healthcare system, whether you're a single physician or in a group, employed or in private practice. MDVIP claims that the resounding result is a better and more fulfilling healthcare experience for both patients and doctors.
We have written an article, “What Are Workplace Wellness Objectives? (13 Objectives and 6 Goals of Wellness Programs in the Workplace),” which explains what workplace objectives are, as well as the most effective wellness programs companies can integrate into the workplace.
As doctors can devote more time to their patients, primary care practices can go beyond traditional expectations. Each year, MDVIP users will undergo the MDVIP Wellness Program, which is covered by their membership fee. Here, patients will receive comprehensive, advanced health screenings as well as diagnostic tests. These help detect any potential issues that are not usually covered by commercial insurance or Medicare. They also give an unobstructed view of patients' overall health.
Together with the doctor, patients can discuss their health test results in detail. MDVIP's physicians will then interpret them and suggest how they can be improved. Both the doctor and the patient will develop an individualized action plan that will include the progress and a time frame for their follow-up.
The MDVIP Wellness Program helps in identifying and addressing patients' unique needs for them to focus on living their best lives. The MDVIP Wellness Program measures the following:
- Heart health
- Respiratory health
- Bone health
- Nutrition and fitness
- Vision hearing
- Emotional well-being
- Sexual health
- Weight management
The best feature of MDVIP's Wellness Program is it can be tailored to your company's needs. Employers can offer MDVIP memberships as an employee healthcare benefit (either wholly covered, partially covered, or optional). Employees can also elect to keep their current doctor and still seek an MDVIP-affiliated physician for their annual wellness services.
Here are some of the inclusions in MDVIP's customized wellness plan:
- Meal plans, food recipes, and shopping lists to follow a diet that can prevent or manage diabetes or cholesterol levels
- Personalized exercise videos depending on your fitness level
- A nutrition and fitness plan that can help lose weight
MDVIP's Wellness Program can help users maintain good health and prevent diseases and complications that come with aging through early detection. It is a highly comprehensive tool that can help patients and doctors map out a specific health plan for them. Other advantages of MDVIP-affiliated practice membership include the following:
- MDVIP Connect website and app
- Medical centers of excellence
- 24/7 physician availability by phone

MDVIP-affiliated doctors have fewer and much smaller practices than the average doctors who see 18 patients a day. MDVIP-affiliated doctors only see an average of 8 to 10 patients a day. Hence, they can focus more and deliver only the best results. This practice entails the following:
- Same- or next-day appointment instead of waiting weeks
- On-time appointment visits
- Not being passed onto some other provider during appointment
- Easy access to your doctor for urgent care needs
Therefore, when patients see their doctor, they will have time to talk further about their health concerns and answer related questions.
MDVIP-affiliated physicians emphasize prevention and wellness. They work with patients every day to identify any risk, prevent disease, and optimize treatment, from early detection to lifestyle changes coaching. As medical bills can quickly pile and escalate, the VIP in MDVIP stands for Value in Prevention. They believe that being proactive is the way to keeping bankruptcy due to sickness from happening.
MDVIP has a sophisticated assessment system, using business intelligence software and physician/patient segmentation in examining millions of patients. Through this, companies can have a comprehensive appraisal of the financial viability of implementing MDVIP to their system.
They have highly skilled staff dedicated to supporting clients' unique marketing and communication needs, from opening an MDVIP-affiliated office to sustaining optimal patient membership and assisting with a physician's retirement from medicine. They have a practice-specific launch plan, a personalized practice development plan, and an in-house customer service and sales center who will represent your organization.
