Husband-wife family medicine physicians join New Ulm Medical Center Clinic

NEW ULM, Minn. (August 11, 2022) — Drs. Kelsey and Lance Deeter, family medicine physicians, will begin seeing patients at the New Ulm Medical Center Clinic in September. Their first day seeing patients will be September 9. Dr. Lance Deeter will also see patients at the Allina Health Springfield Clinic on Wednesdays starting September 14.

Kelsey Deeter, DO, says that despite coming from a family of non-medical personnel, she knew from an early age that she wanted to be a doctor. Medicine has always intrigued her, she says and she truly had no other career interests, even dating back to middle school days.

“I truly enjoy seeing a variety of patients however I foresee the majority of my practice being pediatrics, adolescents, and women,” says Kelsey. “I hope to attract patients who see me as a person and trust that I am caring for them to the best of my ability.”

Lance Deeter, DO, says that he decided on medicine because he enjoyed the sciences growing up, and ultimately wanted to work with people, and that medicine is the perfect combination of the two. He says that he was very close to going into engineering but decided he didn’t like math that much and ultimately wanted to work with people more.

“I was fortunate enough to work for 3 years as a physical therapy aide with spinal cord patients in Utah before medical school,” says Lance. The friendships, connections, and impact I had and was able to share with these patients planted a seed so that I knew I wanted to pursue a career in medicine.”

Kelsey and Lance have one young child and are expecting a second later this year. Both enjoy outdoor activities particularly biking. They enjoy watching college football and playing softball.
