Top-Rated Doctor and Rumson Resident Joins MDVIP Network to Provide Patient-Centered, Preventive Care to Central Jersey Community
BOCA RATON, Fla., April 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MDVIP, the market leader in personalized healthcare with a network of over 1,100 physicians nationwide, today announced that top-rated, board-certified internist Elizabeth Edelstein, M.D., has opened a new MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice in Little Silver, New Jersey. Dr. Edelstein, who has deep roots in the Rumson community, practiced for over 10 years in New York City, where she has built an outstanding reputation for compassionate care as well as strong relationships with Manhattan-based specialists and hospitals. She maintains privileges at NYU Langone Health.
“As a primary care doctor, my greatest reward is providing comprehensive healthcare and the right information and tools that help patients feel well, fit and happy,” said Dr. Edelstein, whose clinical interests include preventive medicine, women’s health, nutrition and the mind-body connection in health and disease. “I’m excited to open an MDVIP-affiliated practice in the community, as it enables me to spend more time with patients and partner closely with them on prevention and formulating a wellness plan unique to their needs and evolving health goals.”
Personalized Care, Real Relationship
MDVIP-affiliated physicians limit the number of patients in their practices, allowing them to spend more time with patients and provide more individualized primary care compared to traditional practices. For an annual membership fee, patients receive the MDVIP Wellness Program, a comprehensive yearly health assessment that includes advanced diagnostic tests and screenings to give a more complete view of the patient’s overall health. Using the results, physicians provide ongoing coaching and tools to help patients make healthier lifestyle choices, prevent disease and achieve their wellness goals.
Other benefits include same or next-day appointments that start on time and last an average of 30 minutes. Physicians are reachable 24/7 by phone, and many offer telehealth appointments for services that can be performed remotely. In addition, the MDVIP Connect app and website allow patients to communicate with their doctor online, access personal health records and obtain meal plans, workout programs and other healthcare resources. Should an emergent need arise while a patient is traveling, physicians can help arrange care with a local hospital, pharmacy or doctor, which may include another MDVIP affiliate.
Proven Health Outcomes
MDVIP is at the forefront of healthcare research, with ten published studies in peer-reviewed medical journals. Findings demonstrate better health outcomes among patients in MDVIP-affiliated practices compared to those in traditional primary care practices, including:
- 79% fewer hospitalizations for Medicare patients, which equates to $600 million savings for Medicare in one year
- 72% fewer hospitalizations for commercially insured patients
- 40% more patients identified at risk for cardiovascular disease using advanced testing
MDVIP has also partnered with the global research firm Ipsos to conduct national “consumer IQ” surveys addressing Americans’ knowledge and views on major health concerns, including longevity, men’s health, women’s health, brain health, heart disease and obesity.
