Winni Loesch, M.D. F.A.A.F.P
Thank you for your interest in Amethyst Medical Group, the Family Medical Practice of Dr. Winni Loesch.
Dr. Winni Loesch is Board Certified in Family Practice. She graduated from Medical School in 1981 Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and completed her Residency as a Specialist in Family Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas in 1984.
Dr. Loesch established her medical practice in Nevada City and Grass Valley in the Sierra Nevada foothills in 1987. In 1995 she moved to Sacramento continuing her clinical practice. In 1996 she accepted the position of Medical Director of FPA Medical Group. Having maintained connections in the community she called Home, Dr Loesch returned to Nevada County in 2003... reestablishing her Family Medical Practice as the Amethyst Medical Group offering an enhanced approach to serving her patients integrating the principles and practices of Functional Medicine.
Dr. Loesch's care of patients integrates conventional medicine with the principles of Functional Medicine. This science-based, patient-centered healthcare approach more successfully treats chronic illness and disease by evaluating underlying causes and combining a broad range of therapies that
support the body's ability to restore and optimize normal function and health. Prevention, early detection and intervention are key tenets of this approach.
With the field of medicine changing in recent years traditional roles and areas of responsibility have also changed. Regarding care in the Hospital, your personal family physician is no longer directly admitting patients. Hospitals now contract with Hospitalists to serve in the role of admitting and caring for patients during their hospital stay.
While Dr Loesch has historically been your admitting physician, Hospitalists now fulfill this role. However Dr Loesch has retained privileges as an Associate Medical Staff Member of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, When one of her patients is hospitalized, .Dr. Loesch is notified and then works directly with the Hospitalists to assist in coordinating and managing patient care. This partnership of caring "together" for a patient allows for the transfer of the detailed knowledge of the patients health, thus enhancing the quality of care during the hospital stay.
Throughout this website is information that you may find helpful in your decision to join Dr. Loesch’s practice. We can also schedule a “Meet & Greet” with Dr. Loesch which is a great opportunity for you to ask her questions about her medical philosophy as it applies to you as a patient.
If you have any questions after reviewing the Website, please contact us at (530) 798-5003 and we will be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you.
