Meet Dr. Foster Montalbano from Inova VIP 360 Concierge Medicine

By Bryan Wright 0 Comment October 11, 2019


My name is Foster Montalbano. I’m a
primary care internist and I am working with Inova’s VIP 360 program. The reason
why I’ve been spending the last eight years of my life doing this is it
affords me the time to spend with my patients and develop the relationships
with the patients. I get to know my patients very well. They get to know me
very well. I get to be able to anticipate problems that may occur and not just
react to the acute events. I make a distinction between healing and curing. I
do very little curing, the closest I get to that is when I sew up somebody’s cut
or I give them penicillin for their strep throat, but healing is a different
concept. Healing is the relationship that the patient has with their illness, and
if I can give that patient the support they need to manage that problem, the
education that they need to understand their problem, and all the ancillary
support and the knowledge that they have an advocate for their care that will not
desert them, that’s a very powerful thing, and it’s the healing that I think is
something that I’m most proud of, most passionate of and I think every patient
is deserving of.
