Kathryn M. Manning, MD
- Women's Health
Kathryn Manning, MD is a psychiatrist at Cambridge Medical Center.
What is your practice philosophy? Practicing medicine is a privilege granted to few individuals and I am indeed fortunate. Within the field of medicine, working in psychiatry requires more than an understanding of anatomy and organ system because psychiatry is about the mind, the brain, the self, and human experience. I believe in high ethical standards, sound knowledge of my field, and the importance of practicing wisely and compassionately.
