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 UT Health, she became part of an elite group of doctors known as UT Health East Texas Physicians: specialists in a variety of medical disciplines who share a commitment to putting patients first. Visit Dr. Graves at the UT Health East Texas Physicians clinic in Tyler, where she provides care that is second to none.
