Kristin Larson is a family physician at Apple Valley Family Medicine. She grew up in Yakima, but decided to leave the valley after high school. Following graduation from Princeton and Penn State, she made the decision to return to her roots. As a physician, Kristin would much rather avoid disease by encouraging people to exercise and eat well; making changes to improve health rather than putting them on medication. She most values her relationships with patients and enjoys getting to know sometimes three and four generations of the same family.
