Dr. Jennifer Dobis is welcoming new patients in family medicine at Essentia Health-West Acres Clinic in Fargo.

“I chose family medicine for the people. This is an area of medicine where you get to work with everyone from newborns to the elderly,” shares Dr. Dobis. “It allows me to make a difference in their lives.”

Born and raised in Fargo, Dr. Dobis is happy to be able to serve the community where she grew up. Dr. Dobis earned her medical degree at University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences in Grand Forks, N.D. and completed her residency in family medicine at Altru Health System in Grand Forks.

“I am especially interested in preventive medicine. I believe the best way to mitigate the effects of chronic disease and illness is to prevent it from occurring or catch and treat the disease early,” explains Dr. Dobis. “This will allow the patient to have a better quality of life.”
