Dr. Elise Chambers is an internal medicine physician and Air Force veteran.
She graduated in 2005 from University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, NM, where she was an Air Force Health Professions Scholarship recipient. She served as a reserve officer and then as an active duty physician for five years. Dr. Chambers’ time in the military included deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, where she served as a casualty evacuation physician. In this role, she helped soldiers prepare for medical evacuation and provided lifesaving care in flight. She also provided primary and preventive care to aircrew and leadership staff. In addition, she served as a squadron physician in Japan for two years, providing primary care to aircrew, maintenance personnel, and their families.
Back in the U.S., she was a special operations physician at the second largest operational base in the Air Force. She led training in trauma and casualty care for 800 special operation forces. After her time in the Air Force, she headed to Cincinnati. There, she was as an internal medicine resident – and ultimately chief resident – at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Since 2010, she has considered Cincinnati her home. Dr. Chambers has devoted her passion in medical care to primary care, prevention, and dedication to the patient-doctor relationship. She is committed to working with patients comprehensively — on all health concerns and needs. She believes the care of the whole patient is fundamental to the practice of primary care.
Most recently with TriHealth, Dr. Chambers has also served as an internal medicine physician with the Cincinnati VA Hospital.
Dr. Chambers is currently accepting new patients at our new office in Kenwood, starting July 1. Her clinical focus includes caring for and helping patients manage chronic conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and mental health, as well as delivering preventive care. She is also an experienced geriatrics provider.
