Welcome Dr. Graziano To Questa Health Center

From Presyberian Medical Services

Originally from California, Dr. Kristin Graziano received her Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, California. After medical school, she completed her specialty training in family medicine at Sonoma County Hospital in Santa Rosa. She chose family medicine because of its broad spectrum of practice, its focus on continuity of care, and its emphasis on developing relationships with patients, families, and communities. Because of her interest in prevention and population health, she went on to obtain a Master of Public Health degree from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dr. Graziano has spent most of her career in the southwest, working for the Indian Health Service on the Navajo Reservation in northern Arizona for 17 years, and most recently on the Jicarilla Reservation in New Mexico, for six years. She found this an amazing and wonderful experience and feels lucky to have had the opportunity to be a family doctor to those she served.

She discovered Presbyterian Medical Services while subbing at two of their facilities. She was quickly impressed with the organization, its mission, and the dedicated people who make it work. When an opportunity became available at the Questa Health Center, she was ready to join! She is enjoying getting to know her patients and the community of Questa and is thankful for such a super team of co-workers.

When she is not working, Dr. Graziano loves hiking, cycling, cooking, camping, and reading. She says being in the outdoors surrounded by nature feeds her soul and helps keep her balanced. Balance is good!
