Dr. Bruce Sachs, Board Certified Internal Medicine physician, offers a different approach to primary care. He sees fewer patients, which means more time for each one. Patients appreciate same/next-day appointments that start on time and aren't rushed; plus they can usually reach him 24/7. His practice also offers other services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. Dr. Sachs develops a personalized wellness plan based on the results of the wellness program. His MDVIP-affiliated practice is open to new patients.MDVIP BenefitsThe average doctor sees 18 patients a day, but some see many more. This is why it can be difficult to get an appointment and why visits are often short and generic. MDVIP-affiliated doctors have much smaller practices, seeing an average of 8 to 10 patients a day resulting in more time for you. This means:You will get an appointment with your doctor the same or next
day instead of waiting weeks, the average waiting time for an appointment at a traditional primary care practice.Your appointments will start on time - you won’t be stuck in the lobby waiting an hour for your visit to begin.You’ll see your doctor, not some other provider.You’ll be able to reach your doctor after hours for urgent care needs.When you see your doctor, you won’t be rushed out of the exam room. You’ll have time to talk about all your health concerns and get your questions answered. And your doctor will work with you one-on-one to help you stay well and prevent illness and chronic diseases.
