Dr. Jamie Luetkemeyer’s days as a family medicine physician are varied, and that’s the way she likes it. Though she has a special interest in women’s health, she’s happy to see the whole family.

“We have the opportunity to get to know our patients well and follow them for years, through the good times and the bad,” she says. From managing diabetes in one appointment to helping someone deal with the grief of losing a loved one to cancer screenings in the next appointment, she sees it all. “You don’t really know what you’re going to encounter when you walk into a room, but you just hope you can positively impact a patient’s life and help them improve their health,” Jamie says.

Dr. Natasha Patel’s areas of expertise include general obstetrics and gynecology, minimally invasive surgery, high-risk obstetrics, and cosmetic gynecology.

Natasha found her way to the delivery room by way of emergency care. “As a former EMT, all I ever wanted was to see a delivery, care for women throughout all stages of their lives and regularly share some of the happiest moments of their lives,” Natasha says. Her business philosophy is: “Better. Every day.”

Dr. Ani Durham specializes in advance laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery and has wanted to be a doctor since, according to her parents, she was a toddler.

“When I went to medical school, I knew I wanted to be a surgeon,” she says. “It wasn’t until I met a fantastic female surgeon who became my mentor (and now one of my partner’s at CRMC) that I fell in love with true general surgery.”

The team at CRMC all agree that family is a huge part of the experience: the families they see and the family they create with their fellow medical professionals.
