Bienville Medical Clinic is committed to full-circle patient care.

Not only do we see our patients at our clinic for Primary Care needs such as check-ups and out-patient illness, should our patients need to be checked in to Ocean Springs Hospital we will oversee their treatment there as well. This provides a strong continuity of care before, during, and after a hospital stay to insure you are given dedicated care throughout your recovery. We are here to look at the big-picture of your overall health.

Did you Know?

Patients treated by their Primary Care Doctor while in the hospital are less likely to be readmitted, have fewer visits to the Emergency Room after discharge, and are less likely to be sent to a nursing facility? (source Kuo & Goodwin (2011) the Annals of Internal Medicine)

Dr. Striegel's Approach to Wellness...

Time is the essence of good medical care. With the MDVIP-affiliated practice, time allows me to listen to and thoroughly examine the patient, think over all the information gathered, and come to a treatment plan that best fits the individual patient. It also allows me to be their teacher, coach, advisor, friend, and if the need arises, their consoler. I feel my patients are part of my family and the MDVIP-affiliated practice allows me to treat them as such. It also allows the patient to take an active role in their medical care with me as their guide.  And I'm always willing to accept new ideas from my patients which might assist us in meeting their wellness goals. Having this close partnership with my patients allows me to improve their lives and well-being by being focused on disease prevention and better manage any problems they might have.

1. Do I have to join MDVIP in order to be seen by Dr. Striegel?

Yes, all of our patients are members of MDVIP.

2. What benefits do I get by joining MDVIP?

As part of your membership with MDVIP you can expect personalized care and greater access

to your physician. All appointments are at least 30 minutes long with little to no wait time. It also

includes a two part, two hour physical each year with extensive lab work sent to Cleveland Clinic, EKG,

ABI (Ankle Brachial Index), Hearing, Vision, and other health screenings.

All patients have Dr. Striegel’s cell phone number to call or text with after hour questions or

concerns, we do ask you contact the office during business hours. Dr. Striegel also treats his patients

while in the hospital and will make house calls to those with mobility issues.

3. How much does MDVIP cost?

For our practice it is $1,800.00 per year. That payment can be broken down annually,

quarterly or monthly.

4. Will my insurance cover this payment?

No, Insurance will not cover the cost of MDVIP. You can count it as a medical expense for the

year and some corporate wellness plans will reimburse for the expense but for the majority of our

patients this is an out of pocket expense.

5. Where does my insurance come in?

Your MDVIP fee is covering the above mentioned services everything outside of the physical is

billed to insurance. For example if you are sick or having routine lab work for a chronic condition your

insurance will be billed and co-pays and deductible will apply.
