Published on August 07, 2018
Dr. Dustie Samuels, a family medicine physician, has joined the Essentia Health St. Joseph-Pierz Clinic in Pierz, Minnesota.
“I’m originally from a small town in Kansas, and when I first arrived in Pierz, it immediately felt like home,” says Dr. Samuels. “I was looking for an opportunity in a small, close-knit community, and I’m very excited to care for patients here.”
Dr. Samuels earned a medical degree from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. She completed a residency in family medicine at Via Christi Family Medicine Residency Program in Wichita, Kansas.
“I worked as a paramedic prior to going to medical school, so I have a lot of practical life experience in addition to my formal training that allows me to better relate to my patients,” says Dr. Samuels. “I’m a small-town girl at heart, and I really enjoy getting to know my patients and their families.”
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Samuels, call (320) 468-2587. To see her full profile, visit EssentiaHealth.org and click on “Find a Doctor or Provider.”
