I am a physician assistant working in neurosurgery and orthopedics who has been practicing since 2010. I assist in the operating room as well as see patients in the clinic, and enjoy helping patients return to their normal activities after having dealt with acute and chronic injuries. I believe that educating patients on their current condition and options moving forward is important to help with patient decision-making.
I finished my undergraduate degree in La Crosse, WI, and physician assistant school in Des Moines, Iowa. I recently moved to Alexandria from Eagan, MN. I have two small children and I enjoy most outdoor recreational activities including mountain biking, woodworking, fishing, cooking, snowboarding, and motorcycling. My family and I are excited to be here are looking forward to connecting with the community.
Dr. Aaron Balgaard & Dr. James Andrews are available to see patients at our new satellite location in Fergus Falls!x
