She was elected into Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor’s society for excellence in academics and volunteerism.

Rachel chose to remain in the Kansas City area and completed her family medicine internship and residency at Research Medical Center in the heart of KC, Missouri. Her training at Research Family Medicine Residency included very intensive internal medicine and critical care training.
Rachel was married to her high school sweetheart, Philip Stevens, in 1999 and they have a daughter, Claire. Philip is a graphic designer and grew up in Cherokee, KS. In her free time Rachel likes to spend time with her family and friends. She is an avid runner and rarely misses a day. She direly misses her Kansas City Chiefs season tickets but you won’t find her missing a game. (She is also a die hard Jayhawks basketball fan, folks, so beware). Her medical interests include women’s health and care of chronic medical problems but she enjoys caring for patients of all ages. Please join Rachel at her new practice in Frontenac, KS for your family’s medical necessities.
