MDVIP is an American company, headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, that operates a network of physicians. The company's physicians practice preventive medicine and personalized primary-care medicine.

The national network consists of 1,100 physicians serving over 380,000 patients in 45 states and the District of Columbia.[1] Each physician cares for up to 600 patients as opposed to the average 2,500-3,500 patients in a traditional primary-care practice. MDVIP patients receive a comprehensive physical examination and follow-up wellness plan as well as electronic medical records and a personalized patient portal with focus on diet, exercise, doctor communication and more. The company states that additional patient benefits include acute-care visits, same or next-day availability, on-time appointments, 24/7 physician availability, and enhanced coordination of specialty care.[2]


Founded in Boca Raton in 2000. In June 2014, growth-equity investor Summit Partners acquired the company from Procter & Gamble.[3] In November 2017, Leonard Green & Partners acquired majority ownership.[4] In October 2021, Goldman Sachs Asset Management's Private Equity group and Charlesbank Capital Partners completed the acquisition of MDVIP from Leonard Green & Partners and Summit Partners.[5]

Business model

To supplement insurance reimbursements, MDVIP physicians charge patients an annual fee between $1,800 and $2,200 per year.[6] In addition to this annual fee, patients are responsible for applicable co-pays and co-insurance, and maintain primary-care insurance coverage including Medicare.[7][8] Medicare and other private-insurance carriers cover a comprehensive wellness exam currently listed as part of the MDVIP package.[9]

MDVIP physicians are not directly employed by the company, instead they pay a royalty or franchise fee of 1/3rd of the membership fee per patient per year for services such as patient conversion, marketing, branding and other support.[10]
