WMC Decorah Clinic welcomes new family medicine and OB physician

Released: 01/09/17

Winneshiek Medical Center and Mayo Clinic Health System are pleased to announce that Lisa Zittergruen, M.D., family medicine and OB physician has joined WMC Decorah Clinic. “I’m excited to join Decorah Clinic,” says Dr. Zittergruen. “I am impressed by the teamwork here and I feel it translates into incredible relationships with our patients and the community.”

Dr. Zittergruen earned her bachelor of science in chemistry, biology and humanities from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana, and her medical degree from University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, IA. She completed her residency at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. Dr. Zittergruen and her family relocated from Milwaukee, WI, where she has been providing family medicine and obstetric care for more than four years. “We felt it was time to move away from big city life and Northeast Iowa was a natural choice for us,” says Dr. Zittergruen. “I speak Spanish, and I look forward to providing comprehensive care to the growing number of Spanish speakers in the area as well.”

As the newest member of WMC’s family practice, Dr. Zittergruen joins eight other family medicine physicians, twenty specialty physicians and seventeen associate providers in their commitment to providing continuing and comprehensive medical care for individuals and families of all ages and backgrounds. “I really love the variety in family medicine,” says Dr. Zittergruen. “Whether it be a growing family, or an individual facing health challenges, my goal is to help my patients find the best path for getting well and staying well.”
