Who We Are
About VIP Primary Care Associates
We are the first in Palm Beach County to develop VIP CARE, a personalized approach that emphasizes quality, not quantity of health care.
VIP CARE was founded in September 2000 by Dr. Robert Briskin,
Board-Certified in Internal Medicine and Quality Assurance, and a Fellow of
the American College of Physicians. He is a member of the National
Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers and the Florida State
Guardianship Association. He has practiced in Jupiter for over 30 years and has
served on local, state, and national health care committees.

20+Yrs Concierge Physician | VIP Care | Geriatric Care Specialist | Patient Advocate | Health Care & Eldercare Expert
Dr. Briskin is a Concierge Internist who has practiced in Palm Beach County since 1984 and has been on staff at Jupiter Medical Center since 1986. He is an accomplished physician, Board-Certified in Internal Medicine, and became a Fellow of the American College of Physicians in 1996. He founded the first Concierge-Style medical practice in Palm Beach County in the year 2000 and has served on the Nationwide Board of the American Association of Private Physicians, the organization representing independent Concierge Physicians nationwide. He has lectured to the American Public Health Association at their annual meeting in 1996 concerning Patient Provider Partnership and has served on local, state, and national healthcare committees.
He was been published by the American College of Physician Executives in a book concerning "Practical Politics", to demonstrate effective legislative action to promote healthcare reform for the benefit of patients everywhere. A committed Patient Advocate, he has always "gone the extra mile" for patients and has worked synergistically with Geriatric Care Managers, Patient Advocates, Eldercare Attorneys, Guardians, nurses, and families as a unique "Care Management Team" for the benefit of very complex patients.
He founded VIP Primary Care Associates as noted above in the year 2000, to enable patients to spend more time with him and to provide unparalleled availability, access and a very high level of clinical care to his patients, who he considers "like family". He has set his target number of patients to only 400 patients in order to provide them with the highest level of care.
His unique approach to medical care provides for same day visits, specialist referral facilitation, out of state medical referrals, scheduling of diagnostic tests, hospitalization services and expedited care, availability for housecalls, after hours consultations, true 24/7 direct cell phone access to the doctor, and availability for a la carte Medical Crisis Intervention Services. He will also see family members visiting from out of town on a courtesy basis.
Dr. Briskin is a tireless Patient Advocate, as evidenced by the following testimonial from Geriatric Care Manager, Deborah Barfield: "This letter is to express our appreciation for your time, effort, and impressive care that you have provided to our clients (patients). It is said that an important goal in life is being a person who fights to "make a difference for the good of others". We congratulate you, Dr. Briskin, for being such a great person."
