Dr. E KumlerSoutheastern Med’s newest pediatrician, Dr. Ellen Kumler, comes to the hospital with more than 15 years of experience working with children.

Prior to arriving in Cambridge, Dr. Kumler spent 20 years living in various parts of the world, including Kentucky, Washington, D.C., and Japan. She was most recently the Public Health Clinician and Medical Director at the Mason County Health Department in Maysville, Kentucky.
