Essentia Health welcomes family medicine physician Dr. Patricia Rasmussen

patricia_rasmussenDr. Patricia Rasmussen, a family medicine physician, is excited to welcome new patients at the Essentia Health-Park Rapids Clinic.

“My husband and I are familiar with the area, having spent vacations fishing on nearby lakes,” Dr. Rasmussen said. “It was our dream to move to the area and I knew Essentia Health served the community well.”

Dr. Rasmussen received her medical degree at the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis and completed her residency in family medicine at the University of Minnesota’s Smiley’s Clinic.

“I chose family medicine as my specialty as I had enjoyed OB patients, pediatrics and teens, and I could not give that up,” Dr. Rasmussen said. “I enjoy caring for all age groups — it’s a privilege to care for patients and their families.”

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Rasmussen, call the Essentia Health-Park Rapids Clinic at (218) 732-2800. To see her full profile, visit and click on “Doctors & Providers.”
