"Dr. Blair is an experienced hospitalist, and we are glad to have him on our team," said Michael Burcham, vice president of Lake Regional Physician Practices. "Our hospitalists focus exclusively on providing and coordinating around-the-clock care for our hospitalized patients and are responsible for transitioning patients' care to their regular providers upon discharge."
Dr. Blair earned his medical degree from A.T. Still University in Kirksville, Mo., and completed his residency in internal medicine at Freeman Health System in Joplin, Mo., where he served as a hospitalist for the past three years.
"As a hospitalist, I provide comprehensive care for acutely ill patients," Dr. Blair said. "I find treating acute problems involving multiple organs systems interesting. I also enjoy talking with patients and always strive to explain their medical problems and treatment options in terms they will understand."
Originally from Little Falls, Minn., Dr. Blair has lived in Missouri since medical school. He and his wife, Stacy, have two children, a boy and girl fraternal twins, and their family has a hobby farm with horses and goats.
