Lee H. Remington-Boone, M.D.
 
 

Dr. Boone was first introduced to Family Medicine and Grossmont Family Medical group in 1998 as a UCSD medical student working under the mentorship of our late, Dr. Michael Hart. After graduating from UCSD School of Medicine, she completed her residency in Family Medicine at UCSD, where she served as chief resident in her final year. Dr. Boone then worked in private practice in La Mesa before coming full-circle, returning to Grossmont Family Medical Group in September of 2005. In her words, “ What I love about family medicine is the privilege of building long-lasting relationships with my patients. I view these relationships as partnerships with the common goal of physical and mental wellness. I believe prevention of disease is key and that one of my most important roles as a physician is to be an educator—second only to being a good listener. I love what I do each day—getting to know my patients, hearing their stories, seeing them through the good times and the bad. I could not imagine doing anything else.” Dr. Boone is board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians. She sees patients in the office from Monday through Friday (excluding Wednesdays), in addition to caring for her hospitalized patients at Grossmont Hospital. She sees all ages of patients, from newborn on up. Dr. Boone performs a variety of dermatologic procedures, newborn circumcisions, office-based gynecologic procedures, and joint injections. In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Boone teaches medical students and residents from UCSD. She is a member of the San Diego County Medical Society, and has served both as Chief of the Grossmont Hospital Department of Family Medicine as well as on the Board of Directors of the San Diego Academy of Family Physicians. She has been awarded the honor of on of San Diego’s “Top Doctors” in San Diego Magazine for several years in a row. Dr. Boone lives nearby in the Mount Helix area with her husband, Jeff, son Connor, and daughter Olivia, along with the world’s laziest cat and devilish Golden Retriever. She enjoys cooking, gardening, camping, the Chargers, and traveling “anyplace warm.”
