My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"Listen to your patients and they will tell you their diagnosis." Sir William Osler, the father of modern medicine and an esteemed clinician and teacher, wrote those words over 100 years ago and they are as true today as then. Despite all the technology and science now at our disposal, listening is still the most valuable key to the relationship between patient and physician. We listen to each other to diagnose, treat and most importantly maintain a healthy life. We develop a partnership dedicated to your health and well-being. A partnership where I take a holistic approach to all aspects of your health including preventive medicine to maintain your health proactively. 

I provide personalized, comprehensive medical care in sickness and in health. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. As a family physician and geriatrician, my staff and I take great pride in my solo practice. I see every patient and do not employ physician extenders. I round daily in all three local hospitals, Fawcett Memorial, Bayfront Health Punta Gorda and Bayfront Health Port Charlotte, caring for my patients, managing consultants, and coordinating a seamless transition between hospital and medical office. A staff member answers your phone call, not a machine, and they will promptly take care of your needs and get it right the first time. 

About the Practice/Practice News

Change is significantly affecting the healthcare landscape with ongoing implications for doctors and patients. It’s nearly impossible to navigate such a complex system alone, but with me as your ally, we can get through it together and keep you on the path to optimal health.

The best healthcare starts with a physician partner who truly knows you, your needs and your goals. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you come first. Third parties and red tape will not interfere with my ability to care for you the way you deserve.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Droffner

from Mark in FL September 21, 2021 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

Working in a high stress job, not taking care of myself for a few years started to affect me. I had a serious incident a couple years back and really shocked me back to reality. I looked far and wide for a doctor that was as invested into my turning the tide on my health as I was. My parents both are patients of Dr. Droffner and we found out he had a few spots open and I put my name on the… See more

I would be in a very different medical situation if it wasn't for Dr. Droffner and his staff. I am so very grateful for his care, his attention to detail and his willingness to go the extra steps on my behalf. He encourages me, he is honest with me, and he treats me as a person, not a medical problem.
Thank You isn't enough, but grateful is the only expression of gratitude I… See more

from Brian in FL March 17, 2020 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

Words are not enough to express the gratitude that my family and I have for Dr Mark Droffner. Besides giving us excellent care for the last 27 years, he has literally saved my life not once but twice and I am forever grateful. The first time was when I was 43 years old and his vigilance was the reason I was diagnosed with prostate cancer at such an early stage and the second time was when I… See more

from Linda in FL March 16, 2020 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

I have had the pleasure of being Dr. Droffner's patient for over 25 years, and it has been great! He is professional, kind, friendly, and goes out of his way to help you and your family with health problems. He also has an office staff, who are professional, helpful, and friendly. When you call, you can depend on getting the help you need from Dr. Droffner and the office staff. I… See more

I consider Dr. Mark Droffner to be the best doctor in Florida. I was introduced to Dr. Droffner 20 years ago by one of his patients. It was the luckiest day of my life.
Dr. Droffner's personality is surpassed only by his knowledge, professionalism and compassion for his profession and his patient's welfare.
He is any easy doctor to talk with and listens to his patient… See more

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Droffner for over 20 years. He was also my mother’s doctor. When she got lung cancer, he and his staff were there for her step of the way. He made her last days as painless and comfortable as possible. For that, I will always be grateful.
He has always been willing to see us whenever we have needed his help. He takes as much time as you need, to… See more

from Marlehn in FL March 11, 2020 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

He has been our physician for almost 20 years. He has all the qualities of what you'd expect but he exceeds all expectation.

from Marietta Jaeger in FL March 10, 2020 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

For years, I suffered from severe bouts of Meningitis (a very unpleasant and painful experience) with no sense of what was the trigger. Then, when I moved to Florida, Doctor Mark Droffner agreed to be my primary care physician, and then cared for me through several sieges of my recurring meningitis. Not satisfied with just helping me through those difficult times, his desire to really heal me… See more

from Wayne March 2, 2019 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

Well, I got goofed up trying to use Google Acct. to write review. Actually I prefer not to use Google because they ask for fair amount of personal info and sites are subject to hacking.
Now---Doctor Droffner is great! He is very personable, professional, takes time with patient to explain & answer layman's questions and has good sense of humor. He is currently helping me with a… See more

from Joy in FL March 15, 2018 for Mark C. Droffner, DO

Dr.Droffner, you are so very special to me,and have been for some 20 years or more. I have never been rushed, and truly look forward to my apps. When I need you you are always there. When hospice did not show up, when my husband passed, I called you and got your answering service and in seconds you called back, and I told you no one showed up to pronounce his passing. I panicked, and you said… See more
