Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) is pleased to welcome Dr. David Brett to our Battle Lake Clinic. With nearly 20 years of experience including Emergency Medicine, Urgent Care and Family Practice, Dr. Brett will provide a full spectrum of primary care needs for all ages.

Brett received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri and completed a Rotating Osteopathic internship, an Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency, and a Family Practice Residency at various locations Pennsylvania.

He has served as an emergency department physician and medical director in Roseau, MN and as an urgent care/family practice physician in California. Since 1996 he has also served as a traveling contracted emergency department physician with the Wapiti Medical Group.

Having served at Lake Region as a traveling emergency physician between 2010 and 2016, Dr. Brett credits Dr. VanValkenburg with planting the seed for the idea to practice here one day and found during that time how much he enjoys the area.

Dr. Brett is looking forward to making his home in the Battle Lake community. He and his wife (a critical care nurse) have four grown children, and together they enjoy gardening, fishing, hunting and other outdoor activities.
