Phyllis Kapellen, MD completed both her undergraduate and medical school degrees at the University of Arizona in Tucson. After medical school, she left Tucson to pursue her Diagnostic Radiology training, completing her internship and Radiology residency at St. Luke’s Medical Center within the Aurora Healthcare system in Milwaukee, WI.
After achieving board certification with the American Board of Radiology, the call to duty brought her to Dayton, OH for four years of active duty service as a practicing Radiologist in the USAF during Desert Storm, achieving the rank of Major at the time of her honorable discharge.
The desire for further subspecialty training in Musculoskeletal Radiology brought her to Edmond, OK for one year at Edmond Medical Center. She then began her private teleradiology practice, consulting with numerous imaging centers including work with lung cancer screening and full body screening. Dr. Kapellen serves as Medical Director for our Tampa facility. Her extensive knowledge and experience are major assets to Life Guard Imaging.
