Dr. Kristen Gutermuth is a physician who is certified by the American Board
of Internal Medicine. She got her medical degree at UCLA, and completed
her Internal Medicine residency at George Washington University Medical
Center in Washington, DC.
Dr. Gutermuth has been practicing medicine for over 15 years, with varied
special interests in depression, diabetes and nutrition, and end of life
care. She feels that her goal is not necessarily to make people live longer,
but to help people live better while they are alive – which often
leads to better longevity.
A life long learner, Dr. Gutermuth also loves to teach. She feels that
it is not much good to tell someone to do something if you don't also
tell them how, and why it is important to do it.
Being the mother of three, Dr. Gutermuth does not have a lot of down time,
but she loves to hike with her family, play tennis when possible, and
read a good book.
