Kathryn F. Bender, DO

Excela Health Medical Group Provider

Philosophy of Care

As a Family Medicine physician, I have the honor of treating people at every stage of life and for all conditions. It brings me joy to be able to care for the whole family, and I look forward to becoming a part of the next generation's care as my patients' families grow. I am very passionate about preventative medicine and limiting medications to only the most necessary and beneficial for my patients. I believe that communication and empathy are critical to the doctor-patient relationship and I strive to employ these in every patient interaction. ***
