  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Five Stars

Dr. Kender is one of the best Internists in the Lehigh Valley. He is caring, compassionate, courteous, warm but very professional, listens to you and never makes you feel hurried. His bed side manners are excellent. I feel very fortunate to have him as my Primary Physician.

Best Dr. Ever

Dr. Kender was my doctor for 20 yrs. He worked with me finding the best treatment options and really listened. I felt like a partner in my health and not "a paitent." He was my doctor before going to LV and I hope to follow him to his new practice. If someone knows where that is, please post the information. I've been searching with no luck.

Annoyed

I just received a letter from the practice informing my husband and me that an investigation revealed that Dr. Kender sold our personal information and health records to a research company that later tried to sell us concierge care over the telephone. I hope that the medical board revokes his license to practice since he clearly violated HIPPA laws. I feel violated by someone who I had trusted
