Orchard Health Care is the small primary care medical practice founded in 2006 by Steven R. Kanner, MD, a highly credentialed and experienced internist. Dr. Kanner is a graduate and long-term faculty member of Harvard Medical School.

Orchard Health Care is a membership medical practice, sometimes referred to as a “concierge” or “boutique” practice. The clinical offices are located in the close western suburbs of Boston conveniently just off I-95 in Waltham.

Dr. Kanner’s goal is to keep his patients healthy. His clinical approach is proactive and focuses on health maintenance and careful control of unavoidable medical illnesses. He engages the help of top specialists at Harvard teaching hospitals, including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, whenever needed to help a patient with serious illness.

Orchard Health Care is limited to approximately 400 adult patients. The small size of the practice enables much longer appointments, better communications, and more detailed supervision of care. Dr. Kanner loves the science of medicine and the long-term patient relationships in primary care he has been privileged to have.
