Rochester Clinic PLC

A Family Originated Practice

Rochester Clinic is a private, family-owned medical practice established in 2010 by Jengyu Lai, DPM in Rochester, MN.

Bringing together providers who embrace the same core values and have a distinct passion for care, we believe that every person is unique and therefore, so should the treatment. We act on the notion that conservative options should be exhausted before invasive ones are considered, and that interdisciplinary collaboration is the best way to design treatment plans and prevent recurrence.

Rochester Clinic operates with a whole-person approach. Our providers aim to assess root causes of conditions rather than simply managing symptoms with medications.

Our focus on preventative care is strengthened by the adoption of lifestyle medicine, an evidence-based practice which encompasses six key pillars: nutrition, movement, stress management, passion, sleep and social connectedness. By drawing on those hallmarks of health and empowering patients, Rochester Clinic is a catalyst for unlocking optimal wellbeing.

Family has, and remains, a critical building block of the clinic with all members of the Lai household having had a hand in the development and growth throughout the clinic’s existence. Rochester Clinic honors that familial underpinning and serves as an extended family to its staff, providers, patients and community.

Today and forevermore, our commitment to compassionate and lifestyle-based care guides us in creating and sustaining a healthier world, one patient at a time.
