Katherine Kasik, MD
Dr. Katherine Kasik provides individualized care to patients. She enjoys learning about each person’s life experiences, health philosophy, and goals, and then collaborating with them to improve their physical and psychological wellness. She believes patients should be active participants in their care and takes the time to educate patients so that they can make informed decisions. One of her favorite things is celebrating with patients as they meet their goals.
As an internist, Dr. Kasik has a special interest in helping patients prevent and manage hypertension and type 2 diabetes. By screening for these chronic conditions, teaching patients about lifestyle changes, and helping manage the disease before it progresses, people can live longer, healthier lives.
