Michael Horner, PA-C, is thrilled to be seeing his patients at the Gundersen Holmen Clinic.
Horner has been a Gundersen provider in the area since December and now joins the Holmen team fulltime.
He's from a small town outside Cincinnati and moved to the La Crosse area from Racine, where he was part of a large health system. He was drawn to Gundersen by what other providers who have worked for Gundersen say about the organization.
"I am used to practicing in a small town and like the feel of knowing many of the people I help take care of," he says. "Also, the Gundersen Holmen Clinic, because it is part of Gundersen Health System, has incredible resources available to patients, such as specialists and hospital services if needed."
A man of science, Horner finds medical care to be gratifying personally and professionally.
"Practicing medicine offers me two things I enjoy," Horner says, who has his doctorate in science and engineering. "The first is a constant need to keep informed and learn, along with the ability to apply my knowledge and skills daily. The second is the chance to interact with people every day. Sometimes the personal interaction is harder than applying the knowledge and skills I have developed!"
When not caring for patients, Horner enjoys hiking, biking and spending time with his family.
Horner joins Kristin Ferguson, NP, in practice. To schedule with Horner or another Gundersen Holmen Clinic provider, call (608) 399-3091.
