Mission and Goals
Our goal is to prevent illness, improve overall health, and where there is trouble, get to the root of the problem.
Our approach, concierge medicine, addresses the most common complaints about medical care in our country—a lack of access to primary care physicians and inadequate time with the doctor. At Lynch Primary Care you have access to your doctor and plenty of time to ask questions, get answers and discuss your concerns.
Why Choose Us?
Our physicians, Dr. Lynch and Dr. O’ Hare take their time with each patient every time, whether providing preventive healthcare guidance, managing multiple medical problems or properly diagnosing and treating acute illness. In the event of patient hospitalization, Dr. Lynch maintains privileges at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center and remains involved in your care to ensure the best outcomes. When specialty consultation is needed, we can make referrals based on our long-term experience and professional relationships with top specialists in Harford County and the Baltimore metropolitan area.

Dr. Kendal E. O’Hare
Dr. Kendal E. O’Hare is excited to be joining the concierge medicine practice with the well-respected and well-known Dr. J Kevin Lynch.
Dr. O’Hare was born and raised in a small town near Birmingham, AL. She graduated cum laude with a major in Biology from Birmingham-Southern College. She went on to receive her medical degree and then completed her training in Family Medicine at Virtua Family Medicine Residency, affiliated with UMDNJ in southern New Jersey. She has not only been practicing medicine for more than 10 years, she has also been teaching future family medicine physicians. Since moving to Maryland in 2014, she joined the MedStar Family Medicine Residency where she was faculty as an assistant professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine training residents and teaching medical students. She has also been involved with the MedStar urgent care facilities in Harford county. She lives in Bel Air with her husband and three children.
While Dr. O’Hare loves to teach, she has missed having a closer connection with patients in her community and is excited to partner with Dr. Lynch in this new endeavor.
I feel so blessed to be a physician. It is not an easy road getting here, but the rewards are immeasurable. To care for people is a gift, one we should acknowledge and honor. To me, being a physician is not just about healing and treating, it is about opening your heart, giving time, and forming lasting relationships with my patients.
