I am a big fan of Kathleen Kundert. She took so much time with me, discussed everything fully, gave me a number of options to follow for treatment and encouraged me to contact her as follow up to let her know how it all goes.

Kathy Kundert is one of the best providers I have EVER known, and I´ve worked in healthcare since 1995. She is certainly the best provider I´ve ever personally seen. I saw her for anxiety, and she did a GREAT job at teasing out anxiety vs. depression (which is tough to do--they are so interconnected). I have previously had depression, and two family members who chronically struggle with it, so I´m very familiar with that condition. I was beyond impressed with how thorough she was at teasing out the symptoms to arrive at the correct diagnosis. Once there, she presented many treatment options that most providers unfortunately do not address: self-care (diet, exercise, sleep), cognitive behavioral therapy (I´ve already done it), other treatment options including message and acupuncture (insurance won´t cover it--otherwise I´d be interested). Lastly, she covered medications. Many providers would just jump to medications and send a prescription. We arrived at this conclusion together, and discussed several medication options. She was curious to know what has and has not worked previously for both me and my family members. VM is extremely fortunate to have such a diligent and compassionate provider!
