Gundersen Harmony Clinic, located in Harmony, Minn., serves the medical needs of Harmony and the surrounding area. The clinic is a part of the Gundersen Health System.

Eight women—the entire staff—work at Gundersen Harmony Clinic caring for the greater Harmony community:

•Diana Nelson, PA, began working at the Harmony clinic in June 2001, following her retirement from the Air Force after 20 years of service.

•Family medicine provider Randi Berg, MD, cares for patients in Harmony two to three days per week and is also expanding her practice to Spring Grove, Minn.

•Leslie Elsbernd, PA-C, is a nursing home provider who works in Harmony three days per week.

•Cheryl Hotvedt, RN, BSN, sees patients at the clinic, where she has worked for three years.

•Lori Pfremmer is an LPN at Gundersen Harmony Clinic.

•Marlene Connelly, MA, works in lab and radiology and has worked at the clinic in Harmony for 17 years.

•Mary Fishbaugher is a patient liaison who has worked at the clinic for 25 years.

Services offered at Gundersen Harmony Clinic include sports physicals, employee physicals, Workers’ Compensation cases, lacerations, X-rays, labs, spirometry, well-child exams, women’s health, drug screens, blood alcohol tests for employment, and more. The providers and staff also care for patients with chronic medical problems such as diabetes and hypertension. Health promotion education is available for patients who would benefit from the information the staff provides.

Dr. Berg and Diana Nelson, PA, are both certified to do D.O.T. physicals, which is a difficult service to find, as special training is required in order to perform the physicals.

Gundersen Harmony Clinic also offers U.S. Army physicals and is one of the only places in southeast Minnesota that can provide them.

The clinic has a mobile mammogram unit that comes every couple of months and also a mobile bone density unit that comes once a month to provide further service to patients.

Telemedicine is an exciting service offered at Gundersen Harmony Clinic that many patients take advantage of because of its convenience. With telemedicine, the clinic and patients in Harmony can connect to Gundersen Health System’s entire staff of experts in La Crosse, Wis .....
