Lisa Dawes, MS, RD, CDE
Lisa Dawes, MS, RD, CDE, is registered dietitian with over 12 years experience in providing medical nutrition therapy and nutrition education. Ms. Dawes received her Bachelor of Science degree from California State University Fullerton, completed her dietetic internship through California State University Long Beach, and completed her master’s degree in food science and nutrition at California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo.

Coleen Wolfe, FNP
Wolfe received her Family Nurse Practitioner license in 1983 from the University of California Los Angeles School of Nursing. Wolfe has been involved with family practice since then in Mississippi and Southern California and on the Central Coast beginning in 1990 when she moved to the area. Wolfe most recently provided care with San Luis Primary Care.
"The role of a Nurse Practitioner is an excellent roll for me," Wolfe states. "Living in a smaller community allows for one to know patients outside of the office, be it at church, school, community activities and of course grocery shopping!" She enjoys teaching and finding out about her patients lives as well as their health care issues. Laughter has always been an important part of her medical practice.
She lives in San Luis Obispo with her 2 teenagers and busy husband.
The development of a Primary Care Clinic model is part of the Dignity Health and French Hospital strategy to go beyond the walls of our acute care hospital to provide better continuity of care, improved resource utilization and expanded health care access to the community. The Health Center also provides nutritional counseling and diabetes education.
