“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Fish to Lake Regional,” said Peter Rao, executive director of Lake Regional Medical Group. “Having an additional physician of family medicine will allow us to increase access to care in Lake Ozark and surrounding communities.”

“What I enjoy about family medicine is the opportunity to care for the entire family,” Dr. Fish said. “I believe everyone should be afforded the opportunity to be part of a patient-centered health care team where physicians assist patients in achieving and maintaining good health and guide them through the complex health care system.”  

For 30 years, Dr. Fish and his family have considered the lake area their second home.
