As a child, Kassidy Boyd, MD, enjoyed helping others. In fact, her first patients were kittens, baby birds and the occasional salamander. Later, she helped at the local assisted living facility where she befriended the residents she cared for — solidifying her decision to pursue a career in medicine.
Today, Dr. Boyd provides internal medicine and pediatric care at Avera Medical Group Family Health Center in Mitchell, SD.
“I chose my combined specialty because not only did I enjoy helping older populations, I also fell in love with the energetic nature of helping kids,” said Dr. Boyd.
