New Internist Joins HRMC’s Tschetter & Hohm ClinicSep 17, 2021 10:15AM ● By Med Magazine
Brett Mathers, DO, an internal medicine physician, has joined the Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) medical staff, according to Erick Larson, president and CEO for HRMC.
Dr. Mathers joined the team on September 7 as both an inpatient and outpatient internal medicine specialist seeing patients at the Tschetter & Hohm Clinic, which is owned by HRMC. He provides primary care to patients ages 17 to 70 and beyond, including diagnosis and treatment, preventative care and management of chronic and complex conditions.
Dr. Mathers earned a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. Dr. Mathers recently completed his internal medicine residency at Canyon Vista Medical Center in Sierra Vista, AZ. He also completed a Master of Art degree in Biomedical Science from Midwestern University and holds a bachelor’s degree in Community Health from Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah.
A former professional chef, Dr. Mathers made the decision to follow his dream of becoming a physician when his wife was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He chose to specialize internal medicine because of the wide variety of conditions internists see and the opportunity to be a guide to patients as they improve their health.
“I really do care – I know plenty of doctors say that. But I’ve been on both sides of the patient-doctor relationship,” explained Dr. Mathers. “Caring for patients is the main reason I became a doctor. I want my patients to know I’m here to be their advocate and join them on their health journey.”
When he’s not working, Dr. Mathers can be found cooking as a creative outlet, spending time with family and enjoying outdoor activities. He sees patients at the Tschetter & Hohm Clinic, a move that is designed to help patients transition when the current physicians retire next year, and Dr. Mathers and the remaining providers move into the expanded HRMC Physicians Clinic.
