We enthusiastically welcome Dr. Miguel Lizarraga to #teamrbma. He completed his undergraduate education at Stanford university, and he graduated with a degree in human biology. He went on to earn his medical degree 8 years later at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center-School of Medicine in San Antonio, TX. He completed his residency through the University of Davis Medical Center Family practice training program.
Dr. Lizarraga has more than 30 years of experience in family practice medicine. He loves his family and is passionate about making sure that all families in his care are well attended to. In his view, the most critical part of the patient experience is ensuring that the patient and their provider are working together to achieve the same health goals and that the patient’s priorities are respected.
Being a bilingual spanish speaking provider, he is able to provide culturally sensitive care to diverse communities. Dr. Lizarraga’s favorite courses of study are injuries and the science behind how families cope with serious illnesses and traumatic injuries.
Dr. Lizarraga is a very proud grandfather. He spends much of his time helping with his grandchild. Traveling and cruising are experiences he loves to share with his family. A favorite destination is Cancun, and snorkeling is among one of his favorite memories of his time in the Yucatán peninsula. Dr. L also enjoys experiencing his local communities, especially the local culinary scene, and he aims to eat at all the restaurants in Sacramento. In addition to being a foodie, he loves classical music and classic rock.
Helping patients find balance and wellness is his top priority, and he looks forward to getting to know the patients in our practice.
