My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Medical students are taught that if they listen to their patients, they will tell you what is wrong with them. The longer I have been a physician, the more I believe this is true. This means understanding not just what a person says, but also what they are trying to say. It no longer surprises me if I ask a patient what their diagnosis is, when they tell me and it turns out to be correct.

The most satisfying part of being a primary care physician is that patients usually come to me first. As a result, I see them with the widest variety of different situations, symptoms and concerns. I know many patients as well as I know close friends. I am in a position to listen to many different types of people from a vast array of backgrounds. It is an extraordinary privilege to not just be able to provide medical care but also to have them share with me their personal experiences. I can think of no other profession that has the advantage of this perspective. It is so excellently interesting and stimulating.

MDVIP has allowed me to continue to practice in a manner where taking time with patients and striving for excellence is rewarded. I want patients to feel satisfied with their care and how they are treated by me and my entire staff. I want them to feel that we have given them the best we have to help them work through an illness or avoid one by prevention. This model supports my relationship with my patients. I can think of nothing more rewarding.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Blomgren

from Jane in NC March 24, 2020 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Peter Blomgren has been my Family Practitioner since very early 1980's. Besides me, he treated my mother, husband and children. He has infinite knowledge and never hesitates to get an answer if he doesn't know it at the moment. I cannot imagine my life without him. I trust him explicitly and should there ever be a question he will discuss anything with me. I have sent my… See more

from Lela in NC March 10, 2020 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren is always generous with his time and attention. I especially appreciate the time he took to return my call during the corona virus scare. I had called to ask if I should be tested. My husband and I had just returned from a week at a big convention in a US city whose mayor declared a public health emergency due to the corona virus. The day after we returned my husband came down… See more

from Angela in NC March 17, 2018 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren has been my doctor for over 30 years. He was just beginning his practice when I started seeing him. He is a great doctor and he has the ability to diagnose your problem and if he cannot treat you, he knows the right Doctor to send you to. This is a rare ability in this day and time. Speaking of time, he always gives you the time you need when you have a problem. I would not… See more

from Jane in NC March 12, 2018 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Dr. Blomgren has been my family doctor since 1979. I wouldn't think of making any changes. He is dedicated to his practice and I have no doubt that he spends as much time with all of his patients as he does with me. I have recommended him to my friends. It is evident that he is up to snuff on my issues when he opens the door to my examination room each time. As I have aged I have… See more

from Roger in NC March 5, 2018 for Peter F. Blomgren, MD

Through life, most people, including me have had several physicians care for you. I have been very fortunate in my life time to have 2 very special physicians, One during my childhood and early years who was Dr. C.O. Plyler, Jr. , who was nationally recognized, and for the last 30 or so years Dr. Peter Blomgren, whom I consider to be the best at his occupation. He has always gone above and… See more
