MDVIP, a national provider of personalized health care with a network of more than 1,100 physicians nationwide, is opening two new MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices in metro Detroit.

They will be operated by Dr. Sandra Lerner, a family physician in Southfield, and Dr. Stephen A. Williams, a board-certified internist in Troy.

The goal of MDVIP-affiliated medical practices is to help patients avoid the frustrations that patients can experience with traditional primary care, including long waits to schedule an appointment, rushed visits, and difficulty getting all their concerns addressed.

By maintaining smaller practices, Lerner and Williams can dedicate more time with patients to focus on prevention and early detection as well as help manage chronic conditions. Other conveniences include same- or next-day appointments that last an average of 30 minutes and full-time physician availability.

“I’ve learned from clinical and personal experience that prioritizing wellness and lifestyle management is essential to better achieving and maintaining optimal health,” says Lerner. “My affiliation with MDVIP allows me to work closely with patients using a holistic approach to comprehensive care and personal goal attainment.”

For an annual membership fee, patients receive the MDVIP Wellness Program, which includes 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.

“As an internist, my role is to help patients assess their risk and coach them on making smarter health choices that influence longevity and quality of life,” says Williams. “In my MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice, I have more time to focus on these factors, and offer services, including advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in typical healthcare practices.”

Lerner earned her medical degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in East Lansing and performed her internship and residency in Family Medicine at St. John Oakland Family Medicine in Warren. She also earned a Master of Public Health, specializing in women’s health, from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

She completed a fellowship in Obesity Medicine and has specialty training as a weight loss coach and in lifestyle medicine. Lerner is affiliated with Corewell Health (formerly Beaumont Health).

Her office is located at 29275 Northwestern Highway in Southfield. For more information, visit here.

Williams earned his medical degree from Wayne State University Medical School in Detroit and performed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine in New York.

He is a graduate of the Beaumont Physician Leadership Academy and serves on the President’s Council and Medical Executive Council at Troy Beaumont. Williams is affiliated with Corewell Health (formerly Beaumont Health) and is a board member and associate medical director of the Beaumont Accountable Care Organization (ACO). His office is located at 1639 East Big Beaver Road in Troy.
