Welcome General Surgeon Michael J. Schneider
We are pleased to announce the addition of Michael J. Schneider, MD, board certified general surgeon, to its medical staff. Dr. Schneider graduated from Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, NC with a Doctorate of Medicine. He completed his internship, residency and general surgery rotation at Keesler Medical Center on Keesler Air Force Base, Biloxi, MS and a general thoracic fellowship at Biloxi Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He most recently cared for patients in Fairmont, MN.
Dr. Schneider will see patients in the clinic as well as perform surgery and provide hospital care at Amery Hospital & Clinic and Westfields Hospital & Clinic. “Since Westfields general surgeon, Dr. Neal Melby, and I are retiring from our surgical practices this year, our hospitals were given a unique opportunity to work together,” said James Quenan, Chief Medical Officer for Amery Hospital & Clinic. “Because both organizations are now part of HealthPartners, we can collaborate and share resources to attract physicians to western Wisconsin.”
With the addition of Dr. Schneider, Anders Ulland, MD, general surgeon at Amery Hospital & Clinic and medical director for the Wound Healing Center in Amery also continues his surgical practice and cares for patients.
If you are considering surgery, discuss your treatment options with your primary care doctor. To learn more about Dr. Schneider or schedule a consult appointment, call Amery Hospital & Clinic at 715-268-8000 or Westfields Hospital & Clinic at 715-243-3400.
