Kim J. Crawford, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As your private doctor, it is my passion to practice highly personalized healthcare focused on prevention and wellness. I believe that great care is built on great relationships. First and foremost, it is my goal to offer a warm, welcoming and unhurried environment where you can share your concerns so that, together, we can overcome challenges and optimize your health.

I enjoy spending time with patients, learning about their lives, understanding their worries and treating their conditions. Like concierge medicine, care in my primary care practice is personal and proactive with a strong emphasis on prevention. This approach helps patients achieve long-term and short-term health goals. My patients also benefit from my well-established relationships with expert colleagues, with whom I work closely to coordinate specialty care and help manage chronic conditions.

My passion now, as an MDVIP family practice physician is to provide you personalized healthcare with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. In a warm welcoming atmosphere, I will treat you as if you are family. With my warm personality, I want you to benefit from the full extent of my time, education, expertise. I will entertain your observations - research - conclusions and help you to face your challenges. In medicine, the diagnosis is made with the history, sharpened by a precise skilled interview, and then the diagnosis is confirmed by the exam, therefore your medical history is a priority.

In addition to being a family medicine physician, I have special interests in infectious diseases, (especially tick-borne disease), kidney disease and heart disease. I feel challenged and qualified in the management of diabetes and hypertension. I spend time daily working with patient’s concerns about nutrition, sleep, exercise and stress management.

I am affiliated with Roger Williams Hospital and, for the past 21 years, I have primarily cared for patients in North Scituate, Rhode Island. However, I now see patients in many surrounding towns, including Smithfield, North Smithfield, Chepachet, Pascoag, Johnston, Providence, Warwick, Coventry, Foster, Exeter, Cranston and North Kingston, as well as those from Danielson, Connecticut and Attleboro and Boston, Massachusetts. I have also had several local patients move away and yet they travel as much as 100 miles to continue to be part of my exciting practice.
