I've only visited with Dr. King twice, but both times she displayed compassion, knowledge, and a sense of humor rarely found in the profession these days. She took the time to listen to even the smallest symptoms and made appropriate recommendations. During the pandemic, she provided virtual visits and did not "push" to send me to specialists, knowing my hesitancy due to fear of the virus.

I have 2 girls and 2 boys. My girls see Dr. King and the boys see Dr. Wilson. Both are amazing. My oldest is almost 20 and still goes to her. She is understanding and is more like a 2nd Mom. I can tell them something and they are like "whatever". Dr. King says the exact same thing, "Yes, ma'am! You know exactly what I'm talking about!". 😏

This was my first visit with Dr. King. She took time to go over my long medical history and we discussed options for future health care. The waiting room was not crowded and I was taken to an exam room exactly at my appointment time. Dr. King is knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.

Dr. Kendra King is great and trust worthy and will give you her suggestions but absolutely respect your decisions as parents and care for you children as her own! We love her and can trust her recomendarions and advice. She always welcomes questions and as new parents we have alot and she has taken great attention nd care to my wifes postpartum mental health which mean alot to our family. Plus our son loves her and all the nurses and staff!

Dr. Kendra (as my kiddos call her) is awesome! She sees both of my children & always makes them feel welcome & well taken care of. Usually I have to remind them that the Dr. has other patients that she needs to see & can’t just hang out with us when we visit. It makes a Mom’s heart happy when her kiddos are treated with such care!

Only 1 of my 3 children are seen by Mrs King. She is really great in assuring me that my child is growing correctly and helping with any issues we have.

Dr. King is by far the most caring doctor I have ever been to. She takes the time to answer all questions that I have. I highly recommend her.....

Dr. King is thorough and meticulous in determining and administrating health care. She is excellent in establishing the patient/doctor relationship. She understands that each patient is an individual with different lifestyles and treatment needs. She is one of the two best physicians I have encountered.

She is amazing!

I have been seeing Dr. King for over a year. In my 65 years on this planet I have never come across a more thoughtful, caring and kind doctor. I always feel that I'm in good hands with Dr. King.
