My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Practicing good medicine is much more than simply diagnosing disease and dispensing medication. The simple act of carefully listening and showing empathy and respect often have a tremendous influence upon a patient's health. Healing is a consequence not only of medication or other therapies, but also of caring.

I became a doctor when I realized that I care how people feel, and I think my patients sense this in me. Over time, a trust develops that can be used to guide patients to wellness. My smaller, personalized healthcare practice, similar to concierge medicine, offers me the opportunity to provide quality care in a comfortable environment with the necessary time to focus on prevention and wellness.

As a private doctor affiliated with MDVIP, I am able to offer unhurried office visits and put my patients first. A successful doctor-patient relationship requires time - time to listen, time to think, time to share ideas and time to form a close bond that will facilitate the best medical care possible.

In addition to being board certified in family medicine, I also have a keen interest in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, lipidology and sports medicine.

I am proud to be the first physician from New Jersey to serve on the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), 2001-2006, and I was appointed Chairman during my last year. The ABFM is responsible for the certification of over 70,000 family medicine physicians. I am honored to be an eight-time recipient of the Readers’ Choice Best Doctor Award from the New Jersey Herald, 2008-2015.

My family practice is located in Newton, New Jersey and serves the surrounding communities in Sussex, Morris, Warren and Hunterdon counties. I am on staff at Newton Hospital and make social rounds on my patients when hospitalized.

from Joseph in NJ March 25, 2017 for Frank L. Kane, MD

I have been with Dr. Kane for about 17 years - with a serious history of heart disease, Dr. Kane has been a true partner with me to ensure I manage this challenge well. With his help, insight and genuine caring about me, my family and my life style, I remain healthy and active.

Each year I get the MDVIP physical - Dr. Kane sets aside a significant amount of time, not just going over… See more

from Suzanne in NJ May 29, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

Dr. Kane is a terrific doctor. He listens with compassion and is comprehensive examinations lead to thoughtful diagnosis. Even my mother who is very nervous around doctors, is comfortable with Dr. Kane. My husband, four children and I have been his patients for 15 years and there is not one instance that he did not take the time to give his utmost attention and give thorough explanation. I… See more

from Raymond in NJ March 26, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

Dr. Frank Kane has cared for both my late wife and myself. He has been outstanding in every way -very knowledgeable, accessible, easy to talk to, and able to provide excellent advice and suggestions, e.g., whom to visit when specialized treatment is warranted. I could not ask for a better family physician.

from Marie in NJ March 25, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

My doctor, Frank Kane, and his entire staff have made a huge difference in my healthcare. Knowing that they are just a phone call away and I can always reach my doctor personally has given me a greater peace of mind when the need is there to contact them. They are always prompt and courteous in returning my calls and addressing my illness. If an appointment is needed immediately they will… See more

from Jean in NJ March 4, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

Both my husband and I are cared for by Dr. Kane. It's a big burden off our minds as we know we are getting more personal care. We like the quality of time given to us when we are there. We also like that we can communicate by email with Dr. Kane and we get feedback very quickly. We truly appreciate the time and attention to our continued Good Health!

from Claire in NJ February 22, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

One of my greatest concerns when my husband and I moved to Sussex County was to find a good doctor closeby our new residence. As I was sharing my thoughts with a friend one day, she suggested Dr. Frank Kane and also explained the MDVIP program to me. I followed-up on her recommendation and must say I was pleasantly surprised to find a very gentle and caring physician. Dr. Kane took the time… See more

from Link in NJ February 17, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

I have been most fortunate to have had Frank as my doctor for close to twenty years. My favorite story is late in December of 2011. I was experiencing stomach pains and went to the hospital. The diagnosis was a gall bladder that needed to be removed. As an MVP patient, I had Frank's cell phone but I knew that he was at Fiesta Bowl rooting on his beloved Huskies! What a dilemma!… See more

from Michael in NJ February 15, 2014 for Frank L. Kane, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Frank Kane's for over twenty (20) years. During this time, he has been nothing short of a caring, proactive, sincere, and competent healthcare professional. Those words cannot precisely express my satisfaction with him as my Doctor, so here are some examples:
In 2008, I had an abscess that I was unaware of. Dr. Kane caught it, and I was hospitalized… See more
