Dr. Marilyn Kutzscher

Dr. Marilyn Kutzscher, a Board Certified, Internal Medicine physician and a Fellow in the American College of Physicians, has been practicing in San Francisco since 1988. Born and raised in western New York State, she attended college and medical school in Washington, D.C.  She completed her first two years of residency program at Georgetown University Hospital, where she met her husband and decided to move with him to San Francisco.  There she finished her third year of residency and was selected Chief Resident in Internal Medicine at California Pacific Medical Center.

Following residency, Dr. Kutzscher participated in the Public Health service, working for two years in a Hispanic, family practice clinic in the East Bay.  Soon after starting at Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, she was promoted to medical director. During a two year departure from the Bay Area to accompany her husband for his fellowship, she served as Medical Director of Employee Health at the hospital in which he worked. She returned to San Francisco to set up in private practice, where she has maintained a practice for over 20 years.

Dr. Kutzscher cherishes her long-term relationships with her patients. She enjoys her involvement in women’s health and geriatrics, as well as family health and wellness. Her goals are to provide the most comprehensive preventive care available, to help manage chronic health issues, and to enable patients to succeed in their own personal health care goals. She believes that patient advocacy of care, especially coordination between members of the health care team, and effective communication between patient and physician allow for the highest level of care in a complex medical environment.

Dr. Kutzscher lives in San Francisco with her husband and three grown children. She loves spending time with family and friends, bicycling, skiing, rafting, cooking, reading and travel. Dr. Kutzscher and her family are honored to be involved in international medicine; she has travelled to the Highlands of Guatemala numerous times to provide care to an underserved rural community through the Family Club’s Foundation for Hospital de la Familia.
