At Community Choice Pediatrics, we know how important quality of care is to our patients. And that’s driven by the people providing the care.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Jared Kevern to our team!

We asked Dr. Kevern a few questions so that you could learn a bit more about him… the questions and answers are below!

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?

Any free time I have I love to spend with my daughter. She loves to be outside, so we go on lots of hikes as she looks for rocks, sticks and animals.

Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?

I had Hodgkin’s lymphoma when I was 15. It was a tough time for my family and me, but I was cared for by a wonderful group of doctors and nurses. As hard as it was, that experience is what led me to pursue a career in medicine. I hope to provide the same level of care that was given to me all those years ago.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

If I wasn’t in medicine, I would pursue a career as a teacher and coach. I always loved science growing up and it would be fun to pass that on to the next generation. The opportunity to coach (baseball or basketball most likely) would go well with my life long love of sports.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?

I would tell my 13-year-old self to be patient because eventually the Chiefs and Royals will win championships!

Thanks again to Dr. Kevern for giving us a glimpse into his life and why he is working at Community Choice Pediatrics.
