Meet Our Doctors
Jennifer McCabe Lentz, MD
Dr. Lentz graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 2001. She then completed the Fort Collins Family Medicine Residency in 2004, when she was also board certified in Family Medicine. She spent 4 years practicing medicine in rural Washington then came home to Northern Colorado where she has continued to practice. She opened DFC of NoCo in January, 2018 after leaving the “system”.
Over her years as a family doctor, Dr. Lentz realized that combining lifestyle changes with medication resulted in more successful long term results. These successes come from dedicated personalized counseling on lifestyle habits and food changes. In 2016, Dr. Lentz earned her board certification in obesity medicine and she has been a long-time advocate of Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) and Intermittent Fasting (IF) to treat metabolic disorders. Not only has she seen success with her patients, but both she and her family live a healthy LCHF lifestyle.
Dr. Lentz’s patients are her passion. Her goal is to build a true doctor-patient relationship, working in partnership with her patients to live a healthier life through good nutrition. Being a Direct Medical provider allows excellent care while removing the obstacles and hassles that are commonly dealt with when seeking healthcare.
Joy Magruder, MD
Dr. Magruder graduated from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, PA in 1997. While at Jefferson Medical College, she participated in their Physician Shortage Area Program with focus in training doctors to practice rural family medicine.
She completed her Family Medicine Residency training in Duluth, MN in 2000, when she was also board certified in Family Medicine. She spent five years in rural Proctor, MN practicing full spectrum Family Medicine including Obstetrics.
In 2005 she moved with her family to Riverton, WY and practiced rural medicine for 9 years and then in the neighboring town of Thermopolis, WY for 3 years. In 2016 her husband’s job brought her and her family to sunny Northern Colorado where she continues to practice Family Medicine.
Dr. Magruder loves taking care of and spending time with her patients which is one of the reasons why she has made the move to Direct Family Care. She enjoys working with all ages and taking care of acute and chronic issues individually with every patient. She treats patients with the care and compassion that she would want for her own family members.
The Rest Of Our Family
Todd was born and raised in Fort Collins and met Jenn here 19+ years ago. They started a family here, then moved to the Pacific Northwest for a short time. He and his family came back to Colorado (Loveland) and finally back to Fort Collins to stay. Todd did not imagine working in a medical setting those 19 years ago, however would not choose to do anything else. He enjoys meeting new patients and greeting familiar ones. He takes the chance to promote the practice at every opportunity. A path like this rarely comes along and Todd has no regrets serving Direct Family Care of NoCO.
Jenn and Todd have 4 kids and love hanging out with them and watching them grow. They are involved in a myriad of activities which we do our best to support and attend when able. Todd enjoys mountain biking, hiking, and camping with family and friends. Fort Collins is a great place to raise a family and we are all pleased to have roots here.
Katie graduated in 2001 with her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. Katie loves working at Direct Family Care of NoCO because of “the relationships we establish with our patients and the holistic care we are able to provide them. Our providers are outstanding women who care very deeply about their patients and work hard to provide them with the best care they possibly can”.
Katie lives in Loveland with her Husband and two sons. The boys are active in soccer and marching band. She enjoys working part time, because her family life is full of activities.
