About

Dr. Kristina Kramer received a Bachelor of Arts in biochemistry from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY in 1991, and her medical degree from the Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia in 1996. She did her internal medicine residency and pulmonary/critical care fellowship from 1996-2002 at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and its affiliated hospitals in Providence, Rhode Island. In 2002, she relocated from the northeast to California to begin her pulmonary and critical care practice. Dr. Kramer is board certified in pulmonary diseases and critical care medicine. In the outpatient setting, she specializes in the treatment of chronic cough, asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, pulmonary vascular disease and lung masses. Currently, she is the medical director of the medical/surgical ICU in Walnut Creek and is active in the newly launched 24/7 intensivist program at both campuses. In addition, she provides hospital coverage at both the John Muir Walnut Creek and Concord campuses with Muir Pulmonary Critical Care. She has been an avid singer since high school and enjoys weekly voice lessons, in which she concentrates on classical music and show tunes. She also enjoys hikes in the Diablo hills and spending time with her husband and daughter.

Dr. Audrey "Lisa" Arzamendi is double board-certified in internal medicine and endocrinology. Since 2012, she has specialized in diabetes, obesity and metabolism, thyroid disease (including Hashimoto's and Graves'), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and sex hormone disorders, adrenal and pituitary dysfunction, osteoporosis, parathyroid/calcium disorders, and thyroid and parathyroid nodules and cancers. She is highly trained in ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of the thyroid (99% diagnostic rate).

Dr. Arzamendi is committed to safe and established medical treatments, and prides herself on staying informed about emerging therapies and research-supported non-prescription options. She is experienced working with all forms of brand-name and generic thyroid medications, and as a type 1 diabetic herself, has first-hand knowledge of nearly all available prescription and technological diabetic treatments, to best support patients in selecting their optimal diabetes treatment regimens.

Dr. Arzamendi graduated with honors from Stanford University, with a BA in Human Biology and a concentration in Health & Human Performance.  She attended UC San Diego School of Medicine (receiving a federal NIH National Cancer Institute fellowship), and completed her internal medicine residency at Kaiser Pemanente’s Santa Clara Medical Center.  Her endocrinology training was completed at UC Davis Medical Center. She previously practiced in California's South Bay before relocating to open her practice in Walnut Creek in 2020. Dr. Arzamendi was a Stanford varsity athlete and still enjoys running, hiking, tennis, rowing, and other outdoor activities. She loves spending time with her husband and many pets, and looks forward to being your doctor!
