New Physician Announcement: Dr. Pankow To join HKSC In July 2020

The entire HKSC team is excited to announce that Dr. Jonathan Pankow will be joining our practice in June 2020. Dr. Jonathan Pankow was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas by two parent physicians. He completed his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry with Summa Cum Laude honors at Baylor University from 2006-2010. He returned to Kansas where he earned his medical degree (MD) at Kansas University School of Medicine from 2010-2014, elected into AΩA honor society, followed by residency in Internal Medicine at KU Medicine-Wichita from 2014-2017 during which he earned outstanding PGY-1 and PGY-2 awards and served as PGY-3 Chief Resident.

After working with Sound Hospitalists in his hometown, Dr. Pankow returned south to Houston, Texas where he completed his Nephrology Fellowship at UT Houston from 2018-2020. In recognition of his leadership qualities, excellent communication skills among his colleagues and compassionate care to his patients, Dr. Pankow was made the Chief Fellow. He strongly believes that having the most current knowledge and diligently coordinating with medical team members are paramount in providing the best possible care for his patients just as he would his own family and friends.

Dr. Pankow enjoys spending time with his wife—an Infectious Disease specialist—and his daughter, all who eagerly anticipate a newborn son. He is an avid runner and enjoys fitness with a focus on calisthenics in spare time. He qualified for the Boston Marathon and remains competitive in running and fitness.
