New family medicine provider joins Sweet Home clinic

Sweet Home Family Medicine is pleased to welcome Tessa Reff, MD.

Reff earned a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf College and a medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School. She completed residency training at University of Minnesota, in the North Memorial Medical Center – Broadway Family Medicine Residency Program. She specializes in women’s health, prenatal and maternity care, including low-risk labor and delivery.

“I chose Samaritan due to the location,” Reff said. “I wanted to be in a small town in the Pacific Northwest, and for the opportunity to provide maternity care and deliver babies. I also like Samaritan’s focus on services to the community and the opportunity to be involved in medical education.”

She looks forward to getting to know her new patients.

“Everyone has a story to tell, and as a doctor I am privileged to hear a multitude of stories and help patients understand the interconnections between their lives and their physical health,” she said. “Plus I get to be with people during some of their most joyous times and help them through some of their most difficult times.”

In her free time, Reff enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children, being outdoors, hiking, camping, traveling and gardening. Reff is accepting new patients.
