Kacia Lee, MD

Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“One of the best things about being a primary care doctor is getting to know my patients and being a part of their care over time. I believe that when we understand each other, we can work together as a team. I partner with each of my patients to prioritize their concerns and make a plan together: to help them feel better, to manage their chronic conditions, and to prevent health problems in the future.”

“When I’m not at work, I enjoy quilting, riding bikes, spending time with family, and curling up on the couch with a good book and a couple of cats.”
