Simply, our goal is to provide the very best there is. Our practice specializes in Pediatric and Adult genetic disorders. In addition, we are dedicated to increasing the awareness of rare genetic disorders through community outreach and educational venues such as seminars and didactic curriculums. VMP’s service lines include:
Patient In-Office Appointments:
In-office face-to-face New Patient or Follow-up appointments for the evaluation, diagnosis, discussion, and management of rare genetic disorders. We are very punctual and appointments range from 60 minutes for a follow-up appointment to 90 minutes for a new patient appointment. All appointments are one on one with Dr Kendall.
Remote Follow Up Appointments:
Follow-up appointments via telephone or Zoom avoid time off from work, travel expenses, and the physical toll of travel. Remote follow-up appointments must be physician-approved but you always have the option of seeing us in our office. The choice is yours.
Remote Second Opinions:
From Moscow to Hong Kong and South Africa to Anchorage, people have used this service to gain the care that they need when they have no access to local resources or cannot travel. Second opinions are not new to medicine, but we allow technology to enhance them by providing access to Dr Kendall for at least an hour of one on one discussions with you. It is very similar to an in-office consult, but Dr Kendall is limited to making detailed recommendations that your local physicians can order or prescribe. Dr Kendall is available to answer any questions your local physician may have about her recommendations.
As a strictly clinical practice with no laboratory affiliation or financial incentive in the tests we order; we order testing necessary for you and strictly in your best interest. Additionally, we are not invested in any one laboratory technology or direction but are open to those technologies and directions that provide the best results and most cost-effective approach for our patients.
Having decades of experience treating rare disorders has its advantages. There are over 10,000 types of genetic testing. Understanding the various options in complex genetics and having the knowledge of the latest advancements in the field creates the advantage to the patient of keeping testing to what is truly needed resulting in reduced patient deductibles and co-pays. Then suggesting laboratories that may have the most advantageous financial policy based on your insurance helps even more.
