A new doctor will join Winneshiek Medical Center Decorah Clinic late this summer.  A family medicine and obstetrics physician, Dr. John Vogel will begin seeing patients in August.

Dr. Vogel says, "My family and I chose to come home to Iowa from California to be closer to family. We chose Decorah for the combination of the beautiful Driftless region, the opportunity to practice full-spectrum family medicine, Mayo Clinic's strong reputation, and most importantly, the town of Decorah's strong community and dedication to culture, education, and wellness."

Dr. Vogel graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology, and received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Des Moines University.
