About

Bio

I graduated college with a degree in Biochemistry from the University of Massachusetts, followed by Medical School at the University of Massachusetts, where I received the Top Graduate Award of my graduating class. After completing my five year Surgery training at Harvard's MGH, I went on to spend an additional year at the Cleveland Clinic specializing in Colon and Rectal Surgery. I was recruited to Indiana in 1991 where I established the current Kendrick Center, specializing in Colon and Rectal Surgery. We have now grown to 7 board certified Colon and Rectal Surgeons and have an accredited Fellowship. I met my wife of 27 years in College and now have five children, three of which are recent College graduates while the youngest two are juniors at IU. My free time is centered around family and golf, and love following politics, hoping our country will work together to take care of each other.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
