About Kali Francis


Dr. Francis joined Southeast in 2014 and is board certified with the American College of Pediatrics. She provides outstanding pediatrics care, from well child visits and sports physicals to evaluating and treating serious and complex illnesses. A country girl at heart, Dr. Francis is as comfortable in a muddy pair of jeans and a t-shirt as she is in a doctor's white coat and enjoys fishing and the outdoors. More than that, however, Dr. Francis loves to watch children grow up under her care and understands that delivering world-class medicine means more than treating patients—it means caring for families.
