Dr. Nicholas Ellefson, a family medicine physician, is welcoming new patients at the Essentia Health-Superior Clinic.
“I chose to join Essentia Health because when I came to visit I could tell the physicians and providers truly cared about their patients and carried out Essentia’s mission while supporting each other and their patients,” Dr. Ellefson said.
Dr. Ellefson earned a medical degree from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, W.V. He completed his residency in family medicine at Wheeling Hospital in Wheeling, W.V.
Family medicine appealed to Dr. Ellefson “because I enjoyed the unique ability of being able to follow my patients from beginning of life to end of life, throughout all their disease processes as I coordinated care between specialists and across all settings, from home to the clinic to the hospital,” he said. “You get to see and practice all faucets of medicine.”
