Dr. Carolyn Kochert, M.D.
American Board Of Pain Medicine | American Board Of Anesthesiology
“My goal is not to prescribe meds. It’s to get you better, back to the life you knew. But it’s a two-way street. Patients have to want to get better, and commit to the process.”
Since her days growing up on a farm, learning from her mother who believed in treating health issues naturally, Dr. Kochert was drawn to medicine.
She studied and entered the field of anesthesiology, eventually narrowing her focus to pain therapy—and the prospect of having more direct patient relationships—when she launched her own private practice in 1999.
Today, carrying forward a tradition of serving the Greater Lafayette community for nearly 30 years, Dr. Kochert is both a board-certified member of the American Board of Pain Medicine and the American Board of Anesthesiology, and maintains staff privileges at Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health Central and East.
She and her husband, Frank, are the proud parents of 6 children.
