Lisa Graves, MD, practices the kind of compassionate care she expects for her own family. "I want the same care for my patients that I would want for my mother. I want them to get the best care possible."
Dr. Graves dreamed of being a physician as a child. Today she lives that dream practicing general internal medicine with specific interests in all types of preventive medicine including diabetes, hypertension and obesity. "The best part about being a doctor is being able to make a difference in people's lives. It's very rewarding to have somebody come in that was at risk for diabetes and I've helped them lose weight and they don't get diabetes. I like helping people live a better life."
When Dr. Graves joined ETMC, she became part of an elite group of doctors known as ETMC First Physicians: specialists in a variety of medical disciplines who share a commitment to putting patients first.
Dr. Graves-Austin is a board certified Internist practicing at ETMC First Physicians Fifth Street Clinic in Tyler, Texas.
