McFarland Clinic is pleased to announce that Christopher Etscheidt, MD has joined our Pediatrics Department in Ames.
Dr. Etscheidt received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. He received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Iowa, Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa. Dr. Etscheidt completed his General Pediatric Residency at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital in Iowa City.
“I think that Pediatrics is very unique in that you get to set kids, but also their families, on the right path to being healthy,” says Dr. Etscheidt. “A path that they can continue with as they grow up, but you’re not only helping the kids in doing that, you’re helping their parents, too.”
As a board-certified pediatrician, Dr. Etscheidt provides well-child care for children from newborns through adolescents. He will offer immunizations, treatment for minor injuries, lacerations and sprains, and management of acute and chronic illnesses.
