Family Medicine Physician
Emanate Health Foothill Presbyterian Hospital

Lisa Thomsen, MD, FAAFP is a board-certified family medicine physician who has served the community for over 30 years. Dr. Thomsen forged a path for future generations of physicians. When Dr. Thomsen became the chief of staff at Emanate Health Foothill Presbyterian Hospital (at the time known as Foothill Presbyterian Hospital), she was only the second female physician to have been voted into the position by her colleagues. At a time when there were few female physicians, she gained the respect of her peers and became a role model to other physicians. 

After completing her medical residency training, Dr. Thomsen settled in Glendora, where she has been serving multiple generations of families in Glendora and the surrounding cities for the past few decades. She founded and built her solo private practice over the years and has achieved a reputation in the community for helping entire families.
