Meet Dr. Giesemann

NOTE:  Dr. Giesemann is on an indefinite leave of absence.  She and family are currently living in Moscow, Russia!

Corinne Hsu Giesemann, M.D. was born in New York City and raised in Southern California. She graduated cum laude from Union College and Albany Medical College (both in New York) with an interdepartmental major in biology and Spanish. She earned her medical degree at Albany Medical College, and completed her internship and residency training at Harbor-UCLA Medial Center. Here Dr. Giesemann was the recipient of the Fred Matthies award distinguishing the graduating resident who exemplifies the "special qualities" of the traditional family physician. She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice.

It was at Harbor-UCLA where Dr. Giesemann developed her interest in women’s, children’s and adolescent health issues. She believes that empowering patients with education and knowledge is the key to an active partnership with them. Dr. Giesemann is passionate about preventive health and partnering with patients to achieve a healthier lifestyle and higher quality of life. Her ability to converse in Spanish and understand Taiwanese helps her work closely with a culturally diverse population.

Dr. Giesemann enjoys a variety of outdoor activities on land, sea, and snow. She and her husband, Pat, her medical school classmate and now a local geriatrician, enjoy travel and experiencing new foods and cultures with their delightful young sons.
