Published on February 01, 2021
Essentia Health is thrilled to announce that pediatric services are now being offered at our Spooner Clinic (1180 Chandler Drive).
Dr. Cathy Reuter, a pediatrician, recently joined the Essentia Health-Spooner Clinic and is welcoming new patients.
“As a pediatrician, I am specifically trained in the care of pediatric patients from birth through adolescence, so I only provide care from infancy through adolescence,” Dr. Reuter said. “I see patients for well-child checks, sports and camp physicals, immunizations and the management of acute and chronic illness, including such things as coughs and colds, earaches and sore throats, abdominal pain, chronic congestion, allergies and childhood development.”
Dr. Reuter earned a medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She completed a residency in pediatrics at the Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield, Wis., and is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
She has been visiting northern Wisconsin since she was a child and is excited to start her own pediatric practice in the area.
According to Dr. Reuter, pediatricians like herself are “trained to address the physical, emotional and social well-being of children through age 17. With ever-improving health care practices, pediatricians are poised to stay current and up to date on the always-changing medical care specifically for children.
“Children often present with symptoms different from their adult counterparts. They also may need different prescriptions than do adults. So pediatricians receive specialized training to recognize those differences and handle them accordingly. Since we are trained in child-specific diagnoses and treatment, it often results in better, more rounded care for the child.”
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Reuter, call the Spooner Clinic at (715) 635-2151. View her full profile.
Dr. Reuter’s husband, Mark, is a family medicine physician at the Essentia Health-Spooner Clinic.
