Wendell Nickerson, DO completed his medical education at the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians. Dr. Nickerson most recently practiced medicine at Calvary Medical Center in Newark, Mo. Dr. Nickerson is excited to continue serving the community at Hannibal Regional Medical Group in Shelbina.
“One of the reasons I chose to join Hannibal Regional Medical Group is because of their community-oriented approach to rural medicine,” said Dr. Nickerson. “For me, one of the best things about being a family medicine physician is that I have the opportunity to develop relationships with patients and their families.”
“I chose to pursue family medicine because I would be able to care for entire families and care for the whole individual, not just one area of the body,” said Dr. Nickerson.
Family medicine is a medical specialty devoted to comprehensive healthcare for people of all ages. A family medicine physician delivers a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services, while also providing preventive care for their patients.
Dr. Nickerson is now accepting patients at Hannibal Regional Medical Group in Shelbina. To schedule an appointment, call 573-588-4131.
