Kenneth Edel, MD, sees everyone who enters his office as a person, not just a patient. He likes to focus on the complete wellness of each person's mind, body and soul and works to see beyond acute issues and know patients as individuals. Dr. Edel's desire to get to know his patients is one of the biggest reasons he chose family medicine. He has the opportunity to see children grow up and families enter new stages of life. Outside of work, Dr. Edel's own family occupies much of his time. He and his wife have a son and daughter and are involved in their community and their church. They also enjoy going boating as a family in their free time.
