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.
In partnership with the Olympic Communities of Health, we have been able to expand our treatment even further in to whole body care by developing a program to address the Social Determinants of Health that may be affecting our patients physical health. We have also implemented a Mental Health Medication Management telehealth clinic, overseen by Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Sandra Clauson.
*You do not have to be a physical patient of Kitsap Medical to have Sandi help with your psychiatric medication management needs! Call the office to find out how to set up an appointment. (360) 479-6041
