Kenneth Edel, MD, says he sees everyone who enters his office as a person, not a patient. "I like to focus on complete wellness of each person's mind, body and soul," Dr. Edel said. "I work to see beyond acute issues and get to know everyone in my practice as a person, to learn what makes them special."
Dr. Edel says the desire to get to know his patients is one of the biggest reasons he chose family medicine. "This is the best specialty for long-term relationships," he explained. "I get to see children grow up and families enter new stages of life."
His own family occupies much of Dr. Edel's time outside of work. "My wife and I have a son and a daughter," he shared. "We are involved in our community and in our church. And, we love to go boating as a family."
