“We are pleased to have Dr. Brand at Lake Regional,” said Michael Burcham, vice president of Lake Regional Physician Practices. “Our Express Care clinics have experienced very high volumes this winter, and Dr. Brand will help us meet the demand and provide exceptional, convenient care to our patients.”
Dr. Brand joins Lake Regional with experience both in walk-in care and family medicine. He spent the last three years with MedExpress Urgent Care in Bentonville, Arkansas, and the three years before that as a family medicine physician at a clinic in Ozark, Missouri.
“Providing care in a walk-in clinic requires me to listen closely to patients,” he said. “In many cases, I do not have a history of caring for these patients, so good care depends on careful listening and a thorough exam.”
Dr. Brand earned his medical degree from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.
Originally from the small town of Newport, Arkansas, Dr. Brand said he was attracted to Lake Regional Health System because he likes the size and atmosphere of the Lake of the Ozarks community.
Dr. Brand and his wife, Stephanie, have two children. In his free time, he enjoys being outdoors hunting, fishing or playing golf.
