Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kennedy "We believe in holistic, total true family medicine. We believe in listening and caring for the whole person, and the value of preventative care and patient education, and that each patient is an individual and should be treated as such. We believe also that one of the roles of the Family doctor is to help patients get the right care, the best care, and sometimes not too much "care"."
