Karen-Gail Brandse, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, my main objective is to help you achieve a healthy, rewarding lifestyle. I have a limited practice in order to completely focus on wellness, prevention and early detection. As your internist, I will partner with you on a personal level by caring, listening, educating and advocating for you. I can be your private physician, healthcare partner and coach, helping you improve the overall quality of your life. My goal is to assist you in reaching your goals and enjoying the healthy life you deserve.

I am one of the few female physicians in the MetroWest area of Massachusetts providing this type of personalized healthcare, sometimes referred to as concierge medicine. My internal medicine practice is located adjacent to MetroWest Medical Center and serves the communities of Natick, Dover, Sherborn, Framingham, Wayland, Sudbury and beyond. I invite you to come to my office and feel welcomed by the relaxing atmosphere and individualized attention offered by me and my staff during your visits. I am affiliated with Metro West Medical Center, Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital and Northeast Specialty Hospital.
