New Primary Care, OB/GYN Doctors Join FPG Network

Sarasota Memorial Health Care System welcomed two new physicians to the health system’s First Physicians Group (FPG) network and community to kick off the new year.

Kristen Rahn, MD, a board-certified family medicine physician, is now accepting new patients at FPG’s Family Practice at Rand Boulevard. Together with family medicine specialists Emiliana Cruz-Hillis, MD, Albert Novak, DO, and Kristen Paulus, MD, they provide comprehensive primary care for families and individuals of all ages. Angela Marshall, MD, FACOG, a board-certified OB/GYN physician, is now accepting new patients at the new FPG Obstetrics & Gynecology office at Rand Boulevard. She provides a full spectrum of women’s gynecological and obstetrical care.

Both physicians were recruited to the area by Sarasota Memorial to help fill the healthcare gaps caused by a shortage of physicians in the region.
