Dr. Grover grew up the fifth of six children on a dairy farm in Western NY. She has always believed that health comes from nature. Most of her grandparents lived into their 90’s and rarely took medications or saw a physician.
She grew up playing sports and learned to pay special attention to her nutrition and body in order to be at the top of her game. She started her career studying to be an athletic trainer helping athletes achieve optimal performance. During this training she found that her passion to learn about the human body went beyond sports performance. She completed medical school at University at Buffalo School of Medicine and BioMedical Sciences. She was lured by the sunshine to Clearwater, Florida to study family medicine and completed her residency at the University of South Florida/Morton Plant Mease Family Practice Residency.
During her first five years of practice, she taught medical students and family medicine residents, and was the medical director of an under-served health clinic. She completed a fellowship at Michigan State in Primary Care Faculty Development and a Certification in Fundamentals of Management. From 2006 to 2013, she was in private practice and earned the honor of “Top Doctors” in the Tampa Bay, FL region. Her community service includes serving on the Patient Quality and Safety Committee, serving as the Compliance Committee Chairman and serving on the Physician Advisory Board for the 100 doctor Morton Plant Mease Primary Care group.
Dr. Grover’s mission is to help you find wellness through getting to the root cause of your symptoms. She also will help you restore balance of your biochemistry, hormones and nutrition. Dr. Grover believes in personalized medicine that emphasizes a more natural approach to your therapy by using lifestyle changes, diet, supplements, or medication but always aims to choose the most gentle approach to restoring your body’s balance.
During her time as a primary care physician, she cared for people of all ages and learned that traditional medicine fell short in helping her patients achieve optimal wellness. It was through this search for finding the answers that she discovered the answers in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine. She completed her fellowship in this specialty in 2013 and moved to Rochester to be closer to family and practice Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine full time.
