Dr. David A. Kipper, MD | Beverly Hills, CA
I began my internal medicine career based on the paradigm I enjoyed growing up – a long and personal relationship with one doctor, a physician that would come to the house when necessary, building trust over many years.
I have from the beginning of my practice designed a personalized, or “concierge” model, long before this term became popular. I charge an annual retainer and provide my patients with total access to care. There is a family atmosphere in our practice. I am blessed with patient connections that extend in some families to three generations. These relationships are the nourishment that motivates and inspires my love for being a doctor.
Having unrestrained time to spend with each patient also allows me to connect the dots between the medical and psychological dynamic that must be considered in order to provide optimal care. To ensure a seamless and caring paradigm, I have developed over the years a consummate roster of specialists that reflect my values of compassion, respect, and the highest level of expertise in their individual specialties.
I attended medical school at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and also completed my residency training in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai. I am a strong believer in preventative medicine. Proactive beats reactive in healthcare and longevity.
One of my professors in medical school offered a pivotal recommendation to which I still adhere: “if you just listen to your patient long enough you will have your diagnosis before you ever examine them “.
