The Kitsap Medical Group was founded in 1986 by Donald L Sharman, MD and consists of healthcare professionals including medical doctors, nurse practitioners and their support staff, all dedicated to providing continuous and comprehensive adult medical care to people who live and work in small outlying communities near the edges of Kitsap County.

We go where our patients are, and to offer them attending service whether they are in the hospital, a nursing facility, an adult family home or at home with the assistance of a home health agency.

** Please help us by congratulating Richard on the purchase of his own practice. He will no longer be working for our clinic, directly, as of March 1, 2023. Although we hate to see him go, we wish him much luck in his future endeavors!

He will continue to provide medication management for the patients he has established with, through our practice, however!
