About Dr. Kenneth Runciman

Dr. Ken Runciman or “Dr. Ken” as he is known, is a Medical Doctor licensed to practice medicine in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and is certified in Family Medicine by both the American Board of Family Medicine and the College of Family Physicians of Canada.  He received his BSc in Neuroscience from the University of Toronto and went on to graduate from Medical School at that same acclaimed university.  Dr. Runciman is also a Fellow of the College of Family Physicians which is an honorary degree conferred upon those Family Physicians who have taken a leadership role and provided excellence of care in their communities.  It is an honor of which Dr. Ken is most proud.  Acupuncture certification was achieved in 1994.

Dr. Runciman brings over 30 years of medical knowledge and experience to the table and is ready and able to assist you with your health and wellness.

Dr. Runciman relocated from his native Canada to Paducah in 2014 having married a local resident.  Getting acquainted with the region has been most enjoyable and enlightening learning about local culture and highlights.  The hardest adjustment has been learning to speak “Kentucky” – y’all this and “fixin to” do that and going “ninety to nothin” while being somebody’s “honey chile”.  It has done took some time but I think I have got it now.  We be wantin’ y’all to have the most bestest time down here at Wellness on Third.  See ya there!

About Phyllis Young

Phyllis was born and raised in Paducah.  She has been blessed with 2 wonderful children and 3 grandchildren with another baby highly anticipated for October of this year.  Miss Phyllis has been working in the medical field since 1973 when she started as a Candy Striper.  During those years as a Candy Striper she received a reward for the most hours worked in the history of Candy Stripers at the hospital.  Now that is commitment!

For a short period, Phyllis relocated to Little Rock, AK where she had the privilege of working with a stellar Orthopedic Surgeon in the roles of Office Manager, Drug Study Coordinator and Learning Center Coordinator.  Over her professional years of medical service, Phyllis has had experience in almost every medical support role, both in office and hospital in multiple specialties including Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, ENT, General and Vascular Surgery and Oncology.  The common denominator to all this experience is the tremendous respect and affection Phyllis has garnered from her patients and co-workers.  She brings a wealth of medical and life experience to Wellness on Third.  Most importantly, she brings a caring heart and a commitment to excellence in patient care.  We are blessed to have her.

Phyllis describes being taught by her parents to give 100% and she gives that and more.  She treats patients like family.  It doesn’t get any better than that. 

Speaking of family, when Phyllis is not running a Clinic and supporting Dr. Ken, you can find her with her beautiful grandchildren and fur babies enjoying the connections that only love can bring.
