To all my prior patients from Riverside Medical - thank you for looking for me!
Welcome to the internal medicine and weight management practice of Kara Nance, MD FACP. I am very happy that you are considering placing your healthcare in my hands. My mission is to provide comprehensive patient centered care that focuses not only on your physical health, but also takes a more holistic view of your overall state of well being. I am committed to practicing evidenced based medicine in a technologically state of the art setting. It is my goal to maintain an unwavering focus on all of your patient needs by providing FIVE STAR service to each and every one of you.
My goal is to provide multiple options for my patients in terms of appointment times, locations, and communication.
I hope to build a practice where trust abounds, so that patients feel safe in our care.
I am grateful that you have chosen to put your healthcare in my hands, and I plan to go the extra mile to see the pain and hope in each of you. I want to help each of you to improve your health by using whatever individual tools necessary.
I plan to hire and train a staff that can continually change and grow to meet the needs of our patients. I personally hope to continue to stay current and implement the latest technology and medical knowledge so that I can remain an expert in my field.
My goal is to create an environment that adheres to strong practice guidelines so that all of our patients can be both physically and emotionally safe.
I want every doctor, employee, patient, colleague, and family member to know that they are part of our team.
Every member of my Team will need to be answerable to each other, our patients, our colleagues, and ourselves.
I want everyone at my practice to remember that the stronger the relationship, the more we can accomplish with each other, our patients, and our colleagues. I want to constantly work to build trust and rapport and to create long-
standing relationships with everyone we meet.

My mission is to make an impact on every life I touch by moving people to improve their health, happiness, and well being. I plan to accomplish this mission by providing the necessary knowledge, skills, technology, and insights that enable people to take control of their lives. It is my hope that by helping others to feel better, they will in turn be able to better use their individual strengths to make a positive impact on every life they touch.
I plan to make myself available to existing patients immediately, and will be open to new patients as of June 20, 2011.
