Knowing her path in life at an early age, Dr. Barbara Grazette was determined to become a medical doctor. At the age of eight, she lost her best friend to measles. Her sadness manifested into determination and determination turned to passion.
Although she thought she would return to her home land of Trinidad after finishing medical school, she did not. She received her medical degree from the University of Liverpool Medical School, Liverpool, England then completed her residency at New York University Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital Medical Center in New York. Then, before coming to Minnesota in 1988, she practiced in Hong Kong for three years where her husband had been transferred. "Life took me places I never expected to go," she says. "The experiences have enriched both my personal and my clinical life."
"My first goal was to be a physician. My second goal was to put patients and prevention first. And my final goal was to provide patient-centered care in a warm, relaxing environment in my own clinic."
After practicing with two large medical providers for eight years in the Twin Cities, Dr. Grazette began searching for lease space for her own clinic. Just before signing a lease, almost serendipitously, she found a perfect opportunity to own her own space. Realizing that owning, instead of leasing, her space made good business sense, she moved into the newly renovated office in January 2007 with a loan from CMDC.
"CMDC helped me realize my dream. They were very positive and encouraging. I am in a space that is warm and relaxing for my patients."
