Meet Dr. Lynn Wagner, integrative lifestyle medicine physician
Thu, Mar 15, 2018
Dr. Lynn Wagner has been passionate about healthcare ever since she was young, but she didn’t anticipate a career in the field.
“I thought I was going to be a photojournalist for a while, a travel writer, musician, business person,” says Wagner.
But her childhood love of the medical field blossomed into a career.
“When I was little, I would always say I wanted to be a doctor, but who doesn’t? I was always fascinated by health stuff,” Wagner says. “I would watch myself get shots and I’d watch surgeries on TV. I’d always help my friends and ‘doctor’ them. If they had cuts or bumps, I’d bandage them up.”
She first started as an emergency medicine physician with BayCare Clinic. By 2016, she took her career one step further and opened her Integrative Lifestyle Medicine practice in De Pere.
“It was a new field for me and a new department for BayCare Clinic. I didn’t know how it would work and how it would go,” she says. “I think I love what I do now because it’s always changing.”
Outside of healthcare, Wagner is equally as passionate about her day-to-day life.
“I love to cook, I love photography, I love sharing stuff to social media,” she says. “I love being active. Running and yoga are my consistent exercises. I do cross-country skiing, snowboarding, kiteboarding, and snowshoeing.” She also enjoys spending time with her husband, their seven children, and her two dogs.
Yet as busy and evolving as her life is, she has one constant each day: prayer.
“I do try to pray in the morning before I see patients. I pray that I will get answers for what they need. I want to give as much as I can of myself to my patients,” Wagner says.
Dr. Lynn Wagner is an integrative lifestyle medicine physician with BayCare Clinic. She sees patients in Green Bay.
