Kristi Kleinschmit, MD
Our residents and fellows are ethnically and culturally diverse, enthusiastic, well-rounded, and share a passion to improve people’s quality of life. We instill and encourage diligence in our residents, but also believe that enjoying time off, often with outdoor activities, is integral to a healthy lifestyle.
