January 5, 2009

            Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services is pleased to announce the addition of Family Practice physician Kevin, D. Dew, MD, to its Floyd Memorial Medical Group-Palmyra practice. Dr. Dew will be at the practice on a full-time basis with Advanced Certified Nurse Practitioner Janet Hollis.

            Dr. Dew is board-eligible in Family and Geriatric Medicine. He received his undergraduate, masters and medical degree at the University of Louisville where he also completed his residency in Family and Geriatric medicine.

            Prior to joining Floyd Memorial Medical Group-Palmyra, Dr. Dew was in private practice Bardstown, Kentucky for 12 years. “I am a family doctor, that means I want my practice to be the medical home for all persons from birth on,” says Dr. Dew, “My job is to treat what I can and find the right specialist for my patients if I can’t personally take care of the problem.” In addition he states, “I believe in evidence based medicine and follow the guidelines of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Preventative Services Task Force.  Prevention is the key to good health.”

            Dr. Dew is accepting new patients, so call today to schedule an appointment at 812-364-4669.  “My philosophy is to make every effort to ensure that patients are seen quickly.  We’ll try for same day appointments as much as possible,” explains Dr. Dew.   Floyd Memorial Medical Group-Palmyra is located at 691 Main Street N.E. in Palmyra, Ind.   The office is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
