"Dr. Jeffrey Kang joined ChenMed as President eight months ago, leveraging 30 years of extraordinary healthcare industry experience to accelerate our progress in transforming healthcare for some of the neediest populations.

"We strongly favor having our physicians investing the time needed to truly nurture relationships with patients, including real-time discussion of each and every prescribed medication."
