Brad Heithoff, MD

Dr. Heithoff received his medical education from University of Iowa, completed his residency at Memorial Hospital, South Bend, IN, and is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine and Aviation Medical Examiner and Athletic Trainer.

Dr. Heithoff's interests include sports (especially the Hawkeyes), movies and reading. Outside of work, he also volunteers with the West Branch High School football team for the last 7 years working with the athletic trainers to provide medical care. This can include injury evaluation, treatment, and concussion monitoring. "My undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa was in athletic training so this is a way to use my knowledge and skills in sports medicine while at the same time being able to help our community."

Dr. Heithoff believes in forming partnerships with his patients, empowering them to make well-educated, thoughtful decisions about their own medical care. He says, "the art and science of medicine can be rewarding to both the patient and the medical provider."
