Gail M. Fennell, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In order to live each day to the fullest, no one can take their health for granted. It is my job to support and encourage my patients in every aspect of their lives. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I strive to provide excellence in health care by developing close and personal relationships with my patients in order to easily and effectively diagnose and treat. The following quote summarizes my beliefs as a physician, "Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible."
Waiting List This MDVIP physician is currently at patient capacity. Please call MDVIP at 1-866-696-3847 or search for other nearby doctors currently accepting patients.
