Sinus and ENT specialist Dr. Greg DeSautel has joined Northwest Iowa Ear, Nose & Throat. Dr. DeSautel will join Dr. Josh Espelund and Dr. Daniel Jorgensen in providing comprehensive pediatric and adult care to patients through the Spencer-based practice and six satellite clinic locations. 

“We’re pleased to welcome Dr. DeSautel to our practice,” commented Dr. Espelund. “He is an experienced surgeon, previously based in the Sioux Falls, SD region. Dr. DeSautel will be a great addition to our team as we provide healthcare services to patients throughout northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota.”

The professionals of NW Iowa ENT provide a full range of specialty care for all ear, nose and throat concerns and also provide treatment for diseases and disorders of the head and neck. 

Dr. DeSautel is looking forward to joining NW Iowa ENT to establish practice in a small community with a family atmosphere. “I am excited to join dedicated providers to help care for the ENT needs of Spencer and the surrounding communities,” stated Dr. DeSautel.

Dr. DeSautel earned his bachelor of science degree in biology from Luther College in Decorah. He graduated from the University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, and then completed residencies in general surgery and otolaryngology at the University of California in Davis, CA. Dr. DeSautel also earned a master of business education from the University of Sioux Falls. 

Dr. DeSautel has practiced in the Sioux Falls region since 1997, most recently as an ENT specialist at Sanford Ear, Nose & Throat. In February, Dr. DeSautel was appointed as cabinet secretary for the South Dakota Department of Social Services. He resigned from that position earlier this spring, expressing a desire to return to patient care. 

Dr. DeSautel is married with four children, a daughter 26 years old, and three sons, ages 22, 21, and 12 years old.  He enjoys spending time with his family at the lake, bike riding and running.
