Gothenburg Health is excited to welcome Kayla Knauss, D.O., to our team of Hometown Providers. Dr. Knauss starts orientation at Gothenburg Health on December 3rd.
 
Originally from Dawson County, Dr. Knauss graduated from Cozad High School in 2007 and went on to receive her BS from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Biochemistry in 2011 and her D.O. from Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, Colorado in 2015.  Dr. Knauss recently completed her residency at Via Christ Family Medicine in Wichita, Kansas.
 
Dr. Knauss explained that she chose Gothenburg Health because of the people. “From the very first meeting, I was impressed with the friendly and personable staff,” said Dr. Knauss. “They made me feel very welcome. I always wanted to come back to Nebraska after residency because this has always been ‘home’. Gothenburg turned out to be the perfect fit.” Dr. Knauss went on to explain that the community of Gothenburg and the exceptional facilities are two additional factors that make her excited to start practicing at Gothenburg Health.
 
When asked the reason for specializing in family medicine, Dr. Knauss explained, “I chose family medicine because I love working with all ages of patients and various ailments.” In regards to specific interests, Dr. Knauss continued, ”I have a special passion for obstetrics, women’s health, and pediatrics.”
 
Gothenburg Health is excited to welcome Dr. Knauss to their group of Family Practice providers, “Kayla brings a unique background with her D.O. and obstetrical skillset. This will both enhance and expand services at Gothenburg Health,” expressed Gothenburg Health CEO, Mick Brant. “Along with OB/GYN, Dr. Laurel Walton, and Family Practice provider, Dr. Anna Dalrymple, we have a highly skilled team of doctors providing women’s health and obstetrical services. We are thrilled to add Dr. Knauss to this exceptional team.”
