Published on August 14, 2018
Dr. Christopher Peters, an emergency medicine physician, has joined Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, Minnesota.
Dr. Peters grew up in Willmar, Minnesota, and is thrilled to be starting his practice in Duluth. “Putting down roots here is like coming home – it’s really the only place I wanted to be and I’m grateful for the opportunity,” he explains.
Dr. Peters earned a medical degree from Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Des Moines, Iowa. He completed a residency in emergency medicine at Kent Hospital in Warwick, Rhode Island.
“I enjoy being a part of the tight-knit team that is found in the emergency room and making a difference for patients on a daily basis,” says Dr. Peters. “There’s something special about meeting someone on what could potentially be one of their worst days, and being able to take care of them and gain their trust.”
