Biography

Kevin Carpenter, M.D., provides thorough and compassionate health care to the whole family. In his practice he deals with the entire spectrum of health issues, with added emphasis on prevention, pediatrics and sports medicine.

After earning his medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University, Dr. Carpenter completed his internship and residency at Elgin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. “During my years in the Air Force, I was able to gain valuable experience in taking care of families,” he says. “The birth of my son has also helped me gain an appreciation for the family unit.”

Outside of medicine, Dr. Carpenter focuses his time and energy on his church and family.

Some confusion, on my part, following this visit. If you would please SIMPLIFY instructions, in writing, next steps that require actions or awareness on my part [...] Sometimes you understand what you're being told while being spoken to but the written actions that need to be taken are often buried in too many details - simplify the instructions/actions for the patient on a cover sheet.
