Who We Are

Dr. Lisa

Lisa Romeo, MD

Dr. Lisa was born in Missouri but family moves brought her through Florida and California before spending most of her elementary school years in Idaho. Family moves then returned her to California where she attended USD High School (sophomore year) and Poway High School (junior year) before graduating with honors from Pope John Paul II High School in Boca Raton, Florida. She returned to her birthplace to attend St. Louis University where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in biology. After obtaining her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, she completed her Family Practice residency at Tarrant County’s John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft. Worth, Texas. She was elected by the 130 residents from multiple specialties to serve as House Staff Vice-President during her second year of residency and then as President during the following year. Upon completing residency, Dr. Lisa accepted a clinical faculty position at her residency program in Texas but started to look west for opportunities to return back to the region she considered home.

Dr. Lisa’s move to Turlock in 1998 provided her with a family-oriented community that was both home to her brother Dr. Joe and in close proximity to the majority of her other family members. Although she initially started a solo Family Practice office in 1998, she found it challenging to balance her commitment to patients and her commitment to family. The relocation of her brothers, Drs. Mike and Sam, to Turlock and their establishment of Romeo Medical Clinic in 2002, provided Dr. Lisa with the perfect opportunity to balance her career as both doctor and mom.

In her spare time, Dr. Lisa enjoys her kids (Katy and Sean), family and friends, reading, and tackling home “do-it-yourself” projects. She claims that exercise is a necessary evil but she will secretly admit that she feels better when she is active!
