Why I’m a resident at VFM

Kirsten Anderson, MD

“I chose Valley Family Medicine because I wanted a clinic-first model, I liked the residents and faculty I met on my interview day, and I like the diverse patient population we see in our clinic and hospital. My special interests in family medicine include care of pediatric and geriatric patients, office procedures, and preventive medicine.”

Kirsten Anderson, MD
