[Fergus Falls, MN] Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Katie Bressler to the Lake Region Medical Group.

As a family medicine physician, Dr. Bressler will work with patients of all ages, including newborn, pediatric, adolescent, pregnant, adult, and geriatric patients. She has additional training in high-risk obstetrics, including operative delivery if needed. Her breadth includes LGBTQ+ care (including transgender medicine), women’s health, and serving patients with addiction (including medication management of opioid and alcohol use disorders). She is fluent in Spanish.

She finds joy in being able to have continuity of care with her patients and meeting them where they are at for their health goals. Originally from Duluth, MN, Dr. Bressler graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with undergraduate degrees in Biology and Spanish. In college, she studied abroad for a year in Quito, Ecuador, where she interned at a maternity hospital, sparking an early interest in primary care and women’s health. She completed medical school at the University of Minnesota, residency at the Duluth Family Medicine Residency Program, and obstetrics fellowship at the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho-Boise/Full Circle Health.

Dr. Bressler is no stranger to LRHand Fergus Falls. She completed a 9-month rural rotation during medical school at LRH, where she worked closely with many specialties, including family medicine and OB.

Like her scope of practice, Dr. Bressler also has a tough time narrowing her interests outside of work. She loves to spend time outside with her husband Pat and two rescue dogs, Rebel and Chester. Her hobbies include running, hiking, camping, canoeing, cycling, reading, and knitting.
