We are very sad that Dr Bontempi will be retiring in a year and are hoping that Dr Nelson will take on a replacement for our internist.

For years Dr Bontempi has been my primary care physician. She is thorough, caring and knowledgeable. She goes the extra mile to help and explore options for my care. I have the greatest confidence in her.

After listening to my issues, Dr. Bontempi gave me spot on advice to tell my Neurologist appointment today. Her advice help us get to a most likely cause of my problem.

However she is retiring and you have decided not to continue the practice. Very disappointing

Dr Bontempi has always listened to me and has given me honest advice about my concerns. It has been reassuring to know that if I have concerns/problems that I will be able to see her in a reasonable amount of time and that she will be able to spend the appropriate amount of time addressing my concerns.

I can not imagine going to any other physician. Dr Bontempi is extremely caring, responsive, detailed, goes above and beyond every single time. She is the epitome of Concierge Medicine, which is the absolute BEST kind of medicine!

Dr Bontempi always takes time to listen to and address my concerns. In addition, I appreciate being able to reach her by phone. I actually look forward to my consultations with her and try not to abus her generosity with her time.

Rosemary Bontempi has been an amazing primary care physician. I am sad that she is retiring. I am concerned because no one from MDVIP has contacted me about what will happen when she retires. This is certainly something that I expect from a concierge medicine provider. I know that the area in which I live does not have a sufficient number of primary care docs. What am I paying extra for, if not to be assured that an equally competent physician will be taking over her patient load. How MDVIP responds to this concern will determine whether or not I continue with this service. Feel free to respond to me directly. Thanks for your time. Cathy Dow ROYER.

I've been seeing Dr Bontempi for over 30 years and trust her with my life. She always there to talk to. Her office staff is very kind and really wants to help if at all possible. She is a important part of treatment of my pain assorted from a lower back injury,
