Dr. Kathleen Farrell, MD

“In the concierge practice, I have more time to educate patients about disease prevention and their individual health issues. When patients have the knowledge and tools, they can make better lifestyle decisions which often leads to better health outcomes” expressed Dr. Farrell.
