Kristen Peek was drawn to One Medical Group because of its unique practice model that prioritizes the patient experience and focuses on evidence-based medicine. She joined the organization in order to be part of a group that thinks outside the box to provide excellent care in a friendly, open manner. Kristen aims to engage, educate, and collaborate with patients and to develop treatment plans that fit with each person’s individual goals and lifestyle. She spends time educating each patient about the effects of illnesses and treatment plans, and provides lifestyle or nutritional counseling to help patients maintain their health. Kristen particularly enjoys treating chronic illnesses like diabetes, asthma, obesity, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension, and she also likes focusing on issues related to weight loss, preventative health, women’s health, adolescent health, and infectious disease. To stay fit, she runs, hikes, practices yoga, regularly rock climbs, and also frequents farmer’s markets to cook fresh, healthy meals. In her spare time, she loves to read and volunteer with Girls on the Run. Kristen earned her master’s of science in nursing, family practice from Yale University, and is ANCC-certified.
