Dr. Kanner is immensely pleased to welcome Eve N. Sobel, MD to join him in Orchard Health Care as of the beginning of July 2017. Dr. Sobel is a graduate of Tufts Medical School who has been practicing primary care in the Newton-Wellesley Hospital network for over 15 years.

Dr. Sobel shares Dr. Kanner’s goals to keep their patients healthy. Their clinical approach is proactive and focuses on health maintenance and careful control of unavoidable medical illnesses. Whenever needed to help a patient with serious illness, they engage the help of top specialists not only at Newton-Wellesley Hospital but also at other Harvard teaching hospitals including Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Orchard Health Care is the small primary care membership (or “concierge”) medical practice founded in 2006 by Steven R. Kanner, MD, a highly experienced internist who is a graduate and long-term faculty member of Harvard Medical School. The clinical offices are located in the close western suburbs of Boston conveniently just off I-95 in Waltham.

Orchard Health Care limits the numbers of its adult patients because the small size of the practice enables much longer appointments, better communications, and more detailed supervision of care. Dr. Kanner and Dr. Sobel both love the science of medicine and the long-term patient relationships in primary care they have been privileged to have.

For complete information about Orchard Health Care and membership practice, please read the page about our Practice, the Dr. Kanner biography page, or the Dr. Sobel biography page.
