Dr. Lisa Downing-Forget, MD
Born in Canada, my family later moved to Buffalo where I went to high school. I stayed in the region to attend Cornell University for my Bachelor's degree before moving to California to attend UCLA for my master's degree in public health and my medical degree. After medical school I moved to Rochester for my residency and fellowship training. I now own a home in the 19th Ward and Rochester is where I plan to stay!
