Karl Hadley, MD
The appeal of Family Practice, to me, is that I have a chance to work with all ages of people and all sorts of medical problems.
Seeking good health for my patients through a collaborative effort is my style. Involving people in their own healthcare decisions, I think, leads to greater compliance with the recommended therapy.
Having two grown children gives me an understanding for the rigors of parenthood and the trials kids have as they navigate their lives toward adulthood.
I enjoy my job, and the people who work with me at The Doctors Clinic Poulsbo. As you discuss your medical concerns with us, we hope to make you feel at home.
Joined The Doctors Clinic:
I offer contraceptive counseling and gynecologic care. I very much enjoy newborn care and pediatrics. I do flight physicals for airline and general aviation pilots and manage diabetes and hypertension. On the surgical side, I do the newer "no-scalpel" vasectomy and other minor procedures.
