The company was founded by S. Shai Gold, former American hospital executive and current owner of Alfa Strategies, LLC, and Francisco (Frank) Madera, MD, a General Practitioner with expertise in international medical services, medical case management and cost containment.

Business Rationale: High Tech Version of the Traditional “Doctor’s House Call”

Mr. Gold and Dr. Madera recognized that increased urbanization of the capital, and continued growth of luxury beachside communities, present functional challenges to accessing healthcare and give rise to consumer demand for private, concierge-style, healthcare service at home.

New neighborhoods and beachside communities are farther away from medical service providers, therefore facing unbearable traffic congestion and risky driving conditions.  Moreover, following the Covid-19 pandemic, patients are reluctant to stay in crowded medical practices, and congested hospital emergency rooms.

Finally, the massive influx of tourism and business visitors to Santo Domingo resulted in demand for use-friendly access to ethical and effective primary care and urgent care problems that can be treated in the convenience and safety of the hotel room.

Mr. Gold, Co-founder & President

In healthcare since 1990, Mr. Gold is a former executive at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami Florida (1995-1999 and 2001-2008), and an active international management consultant (1998-2001 and 2009 to date).

Mr. Gold developed nearly $1B in healthcare projects, mostly while at the Jackson Health System, Florida's largest public-teaching health system.
At the Jackson Health System in Miami, Mr. Gold served as founding Vice President of International Medical Service and he is credited with successful development of a landmark program that generated $90M in annual revenue and set new standards for the participation of public-teaching hospitals in cross border healthcare.

Prior to this role, he headed Strategic Planning and Business Development where he was responsible for numerous innovative development initiatives that contributed to the financial turnaround of the hospital and forever changed its business culture.

A management consultant since 1998, Mr. Gold’s focus is on strategic advisory and operational efficiencies of payers, providers and TPAs.

Client Testimonials

"Excellent service! I reached out to ViP-DR when I was recently sick with fever and stomach pain. Dr. Madera immediately responded with a tele-consultation to discuss the symptoms and evaluate the medical compliant. He was kind, attentive and re-assuring. The tele-consultation was followed up with a medical visit to examine me at my home. Dr Madera came equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and followed up on the physical examination with a very clear explanation of his findings. I was impressed with the quality of care and recommend ViP-DR as a fantastic option for personalized and convenient medical care."
Santo Domingo
"Thank You! I used ViP-DR when I was last in Santo Domingo. The doctor called me to ascertain my condition and followed up with a medical house call two hours later. The doctor spoke clear English and his communication skills were excellent. The doctor prescribed medication which was delivered to my hotel room! My medical issue was resolved better and faster than it would have been addressed back home in Montreal. ViP-MD is excellent idea. Thank you!"
Santo Domingo
"My elderly mother did not feel well on Sunday while she was staying with me. I called ViP-DR for a medical visit at home. Within less than one hour a doctor came to our home to examine my mother. Following physical examination and several diagnostic tests, the doctor determined that she was dehydrated and had low blood pressure. He administered infusion of fluids and provided a natural solution for the low blood pressure. The doctor was kind, patient and informative. I was impressed with the quality of care and recommend ViP-DR to anyone."
