The doctors available to see patients at the Sanford Health Mt. Lake Clinic will double in the near future. Laurie Stenke, Director of Clinic Operations for the region, recently announced

Dr. Ahmad J. Yusuf will join the medical staff in Mt. Lake on March 2. Stenke said, “Recruitment has been going on for

several years in response to a growing need in this area.”

Dr. Yusuf will join Dr. Steven Harder and Karen Uecker- Bezdicek, C.N.P.

He currently practices at Sanford Worthington Clinic. Family

medicine is his specialty. “I received a good impression of the area’s residents and I look forward to learning from Dr. Harder’s experience,” Dr. Yusuf said.

The scope of his practice is broad, from infants to

geriatric care.

He added, “Continuity of care makes it special. There is a deeper physician- patient relationship.” He believes in shared decision-making between the patient and physician and focusing on preventive care.

Dr. Yusuf is married to Farima and they have three boys: Sam (10), Elham (7) and Farzaan (1½). They all enjoy outdoor activities and look forward to biking and fishing in the area.
