Practice Evolution:

Dr. Graff was running Lake Country Family Medicine, a micro-practice model family medicine practice, when she learned about lifestyle medicine in late 2013. After adopting the lifestyle medicine principles personally and experiencing tremendous health benefits, she began to incorporate lifestyle medicine into her practice of medicine. In 2016, she added a lifestyle medicine consultation service to be able to help patients who already had a primary care physician. She believes that lifestyle medicine is the foundation on which medical care will be constructed in the future and joined the Rochester Regional Health System in 2018 to integrate lifestyle medicine concepts into mainstream medicine. She hopes to create a financially viable primary care model of practice that makes lifestyle medicine services available and affordable to all patients and to help other primary care practices transition to this model as well.

Dr. Graff’s personal health story was featured on Forks Over Knives. You can read it here.

Please note that we are not an Alternative Medicine practice.
