Doctor is truly a family physician

You would think I would know what family physicians are, especially because my father served Lima as a family physician for more than 50 years. Iíve always said that the family physician serves the whole family, and thus their name.

My experiences with Dr. Karri Krendl and her entire staff have taught me better. A family physician is called that because she is truly a part of your family. Dr. Krendl has seen us through many stages of life and many health crises with medical skill, great warmth and love. We consider her a wonderful blessing and are so grateful for her care.

Modern trends in medicine are threatening the family physician, putting independent doctors in competition with mega-hospitals that are buying up family practices and then setting their own priorities and policies. I am so thankful that our family doctor has put families as her first priority and that her loyalty lies only with those she serves.

ó Martha Curry Scheer, Lima
