Find a doctor

With more than 400 providers and 2,000+ skilled employees across the state of Wisconsin, Prevea Health makes it easy to find the right physician for you and your family. Our highly-trained doctors understand that every patient is different and their focus is on helping every individual achieve their personal goals for a lifetime of good health and happiness.

When searching for the right doctor for you and your family at Prevea Health, you will likely notice some of our doctors have a (MD) or a (DO) listed after their name. This refers to the most common type of credentialing or degrees earned by doctors practicing medicine in the United States.

Prevea is also the home of two Family Medicine Residency Programs, in Eau Claire and Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Resident Physicians have a medical degree (MD, DO) – signifying the completion of medical school. During medical school, in addition to advanced science coursework, medical students complete two years of direct patient care in multiple medical specialties.

Other providers within our healthcare system with thousands of hours of medical training, advanced degrees and certifications from the state include nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwives.

I believe in providing patient care that is evidence based, meaning that it's based on the latest research and has been proven to be beneficial. The key is to provide treatments when they are necessary and helpful. But we also find that frequently in children, the body can heal itself, and no medications or other treatments are necessary. I particularly try to avoid overuse of antibiotics because we are seeing more resistant infections and we know that the more antibiotics a child receives, the more likely they are to have infections that are resistant to the antibiotics we do use.

The most important part of a visit with my patients is the communication that occurs. As a physician, it’s important that I listen carefully to parent concerns, so parents can make the most of their visits by accurately describing what is going on with their child. Also, it’s important for patients and their parents to listen carefully so that they understand things completely.  

In addition to being board-certified in pediatrics, I have a Master’s Degree in Population Health. This is the study of the most effective ways to improve the public’s health through applying knowledge, resources, disease prevention, health policy and management. 

I am married and have three daughters that keep me very busy when I am not working. My outside interests include outdoor activities, such as bicycling, hiking and mountain biking. I also enjoy music and I play the piano.
