“As a physician, I value the concept of teamwork in the effective practice of my profession. I believe that everyone has a story, and that all patients play an active part in the healing and overall management of their condition. Active listening and effective communication is vital, and I am dedicated to making my patients an integral part of their treatment.  Having had the privilege of training in a variety of practice settings, as well as having international experience, I place great importance on the role that other disciplines play in the patient’s well-being; from conventional choices, to a more integrative approach such as using natural remedies and modalities.”
 


Dr. Jason Kindt, General Practitioner

Although having a passion for the theater and participating in many high school productions, Dr. Jason Kindt quickly realized that his enthusiasm for musical theater does not make up for his lack of pitch.  So, he went to medical school.  He graduated from Ursinus College in 1995 and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1999.  He is board certified in Family Medicine and worked for the Reading Health System in Hamburg, PA, where he was voted “best family practice” five years in a row, until 2013.  After that he had to be closer to Broadway so he moved to New York City and has been doing Urgent Care in midtown Manhattan ever since, leaving him plenty of opportunity to catch all the shows in town.  Dr. Kindt is a theater person at heart and is very excited to be working with this community.  He is a loving and caring family physician who is dedicated to helping his patients thrive in every aspect of their lives.  "If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him." (John F. Kennedy)
