Kathleen "Katy" Rieves, MD

Primary Practice: Family Medicine

“I became a doctor because I wanted to understand more about the human body and help others understand it as well,” says Dr. Rieves. She strives to stay current with research, so she’s a reliable source of information for her patients. Dr. Rieves sees the doctor-patient relationship as a dance. “The patient leads and I follow, discussing what matters to them regarding their health. Sometimes, a patient has a complicated health issue, and we need to be detectives to solve it. Other times, a patient wants to change behavior, such as quitting smoking or losing weight, and we need to make a plan for how to do it. I try to listen to the patient and then act accordingly.”
