About me

Welcome to my Web page. My name is Rebecca LeVasseur. I am a general internist with Kaiser Permanente. My office is at Point Loma in central San Diego. I am glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself through this page.

Biography

I was born and raised in Minnesota, mostly in the Minneapolis area. I trained as a nurse and worked at the University of Minnesota Hospitals for about 12 years before I went to medical school. My family and I moved to San Diego about 18 years ago, and it really has become our home. My husband and I love the weather because it allows us to hike, walk, and stay WARM. Our children have also chosen to stay in the area after college.

About my practice

Our clinic at Point Loma is a relatively small clinic. We have nine physicians and one nurse practitioner at the clinic. We then are split into smaller work teams. This helps my nurses become familiar with my patients, their needs and preferences. This better enables us to provide a small medical practice environment within the larger group practice. I think of my patients and myself as a team also. We as physicians and nurses can only guide patients in their care; patients must assume responsibility for carrying out our advice in order to achieve a healthy lifestyle. This is especially true when we try to help people quit smoking or control their weight, and finally to take care of their various chronic medical conditions. I believe the education of all of us is an essential key to a healthy life. I always encourage my patients to learn all they can about their bodies and their chronic diseases. Kaiser Permanente has many resources to help us in this learning process.

How I thrive

Our work as physicians has become more stressful throughout the last 20 years. I try to keep myself well by doing what I encourage my patients to do: exercise regularly, eat and drink in moderation, and sleep eight hours per night. I do regular yoga classes to stay strong and flexible, but this has also been a very good way for me to learn to manage stress. My relationship with my patients is very nourishing to me. Through the years I have become very close to many of my patients, and this is oftentimes what helps me through some of the tough days. Finally, my family has always been important to me. My husband and children provide a touchstone for me when the demands of my medical practice become overwhelming. I would not be who I am without their love and support.
