MDVIP Inc. Key Developments

MDVIP Appoints Adam D. Singer to the Board of Directors Effective April 1, 2016

MDVIP announced the appointment of Adam D. Singer, M.D., to the Board of Directors effective April 1, 2016. Dr. Singer is a highly respected physician and successful healthcare entrepreneur who founded and led the pioneering medical company, IPC Healthcare. By 1995, he served as a director, chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and later as Chief Medical Officer of North Hollywood, California-based IPC Healthcare Inc., previously known as IPC-The Hospitalist Co.

MDVIP Found Responsible for Negligence and Faces False Claims Charges

Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley P.A.announced that a Palm Beach County jury found concierge medical service MDVIP responsible for fraud and false advertising, and awarded approximately $8.5 million to the estate of Joan Beber, a Boca Raton resident whose leg was amputated as a result of MDVIP's failure to deliver the quality medical services promised to its members. In 2008, Mrs. Beber, then a recent MDVIP member, sought medical attention for leg pain and was treated by MDVIP primary care physician, Dr. Charles Metzger Jr. Despite the progressive worsening of her condition, Mrs. Beber was repeatedly misdiagnosed by Metzger and other MDVIP-affiliated staff. Orthopedists, to which Beber was referred by Metzger, and with whom Metzger was supposed to be coordinating Beber's care, were never given medical records or informed of her worsening symptoms information that should have led to the discovery of a serious circulation problem in Ms. Beber's leg that eventually required the above-the-knee amputation. She would spend the next four years dealing with serious phantom pain and struggling to learn to walk on a prosthetic leg, before dying of leukemia in 2012. Ms. Beber's estate was represented at trial by Karen Terry, Jack Scarola, and Andrea Robinson of Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley, P.A. Significantly, the scope of the case extends beyond medical malpractice. During a three-week trial, the Plaintiff's lawyers argued that MDVIP misled Beber and her husband Robert Beber into paying $1,500 each annually for what they were told, verbally and in writing, would be exceptional care provided by a network of exceptional doctors. They charged MDVIP with making false claims as to the qualifications of their doctors, the availability of specialist physicians, and access to top-quality hospitals. The trial concluded on February 9, and the jury delivered its verdict the next day after deliberating for a total of just over six hours. Dr. Metzger and his colleagues settled out of court prior to trial, but those settlements do not diminish the damages for which MDVIP was found to be liable by this jury's verdict. The verdict also carries with it a liability for seven years of attorneys' fees and costs, estimated to add as much as a million dollars or more to the final judgment against MDVIP.
