Profile

Dr. Kammenzind enjoys coming to work because it allows him to help educate patients and partner with them to develop a plan, unique to them, to regain then attain the highest level of health for themselves. He likes when patients want to participate in the decisions and implementation of health goals that will address new approaches to common problems. He says, “I am grateful for each day that I am able to work and am honored by the people that I come into contact with each day...team, patients, staff. It is great to be among the kindest and most caring people not only towards our patients, but also toward each other.”

The Hippocratic Oath that doctors take promises to “first do no harm.” This is something Dr. Kammenzind focuses on strongly. Many times over the course of caring for patients, he considers how his actions affect the patient as a whole. The body is all interconnected and what happens in one part can affect other parts.

Medicine has given Dr. Kammenzind the opportunity to impact his patient’s lives in a special way by using his top three areas of interest: internal medicine, nephrology and public health. Internal medicine allows him to help people with their overall health. Nephrology gives him the ability to help people keep their kidneys healthy. Public health gives him insight into the effect on a person's health from external environments. Combining all three lets him to look at each patient and take into consideration the possible combinations that contribute to their current health status and anticipate impacts on their health in the future.

When Dr. Kammenzind isn’t working, he volunteers in nursing homes, teaches math to interested adults and helps out on special projects at his church. He also enjoys walking, repairing things in his workshop and visiting his grandchildren and their pets.
