Nestled in the picturesque Rocky Mountains is the small town of Durango, Colorado, is Fort Lewis College's home, where Lynnette Conrad completed her undergraduate degree. Upon graduation, she moved on to attend one of the nation's first physician assistant programs that continually ranks in the top 20 best physician assistant schools in the country, the University of Washington School of Medicine MEDEX PA program.
After working for some time at the Centers for Disease Control in Houston, Texas, she learned of a State Communicable Disease Specialist position for Nevada. She accepted the position sight-unseen and has been enamored with Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Mountains ever since. She has been practicing in Carson City for over 20 years. Six of those years were in primary care and 12 years in the emergency department at Carson Tahoe.
Lynnette treats Carson Medical Group patients at CMG's walk-in clinic, CMG Plus. She is happy to help care for patients experiencing acute illness or injury. She believes patients should be seen at their "medical homes" to maintain care continuity.
Lynnette wants all patients to feel empowered to advocate for their health and well-being. She encourages her patients to ask questions about their health, she strives to be a good listener, and believes in treating others how she wants to be treated.
Lynnette and her husband, who has lived in Carson City most of his life, enjoy quality family time with their two children. When she is not working, she loves being outside, cooking, eating good food, running, mountain biking, cross country skiing, decorating, gardening, playing the flute, and traveling.
Lynnette spent two years in Mexico, and she loves being able to speak Spanish with her patients.
