About Catherine Sundsmo, MD

I practice as a team with Dr. Jade Grimm, and we work together to provide you excellent care. I chose to pursue family medicine for the opportunity to interact with individuals of all ages. I provide treatment for a wide range of diseases, offer education on preventive care and build quality relationships with the people I care for. In medicine, I feel that there is a balance in providing education and reaching decisions between patient and physician. I believe in focusing on preventive medicine, a healthy lifestyle and effective communication when treating patients. I aim to provide kindness, intelligence and compassionate care at all times. I enjoy spending time with my family and our dogs when I am not working. My hobbies include running, gardening, cooking, hiking, camping, playing soccer and traveling.

Everything was exceptional. I understood that my Dr was not a sports medicine Dr , but I was hoping to consider more than just a cortisone shot as a method of treatment. I'm thankful for the directives of Dr. S to have x-rays performed as well as her recommendation for PT on the neck and Sports Dr for the shoulder. I am glad she has also followed upon the cholesterol with a recommendation for calcium buildup assessment. I look forward to speaking to the PT for my neck and the Sports Dr for alternatives to cortisone since the shots we not helpful in the past.
