Dr. Gunnar (Gunther) Wagoner, a hospitalist, has joined Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, Minnesota.

Originally from Glencoe, Minnesota, Dr. Wagoner is thrilled to be starting his practice in Duluth. “Minnesota is home. We have family and friends throughout the state, and I love all the outdoor activities that are available around Duluth,” he explains.

Dr. Wagoner earned a medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He completed a residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York.

“I love the variety of patients I get to take care of and the pace that comes with working in the hospital,” says Dr. Wagoner. “I work to understand each patient’s whole story in addition to their immediate medical needs, and I try to gain a good sense of all that patients and families are feeling and thinking during stressful moments.”
