Sunday Spotlight time again! And once again we are continuing our quest to help you get to know the amazing team of OBGYN docs at Essentia Health Brainerd Campus. Kind of a “peeling back the layers” a bit to help you get to know them and their lives a bit more. It’s also part of Essentia’s MatchOBGYN.org efforts to introduce potential patients to their doctors before making an appointment so they can personally make a connection and informed decision.
Dr Janelle Strom M.D
Where are you from? Fargo North Dakota and went to high school at Pelican Rapids, MN.
Where did you study? Medical School at University of North Dakota, Grand Forks and Residency at Creighton University, Omaha, NE
Did someone inspire you to become a doctor? Medicine for me, has always been a life-long interest.
Why did you decide to specialize in OB Medicine? OB offers a great variety from caring for the mother and baby to surgery.
What drew you to Brainerd, MN for your practice? Essentia Health offers the best quality and safest care for patients with a complete team that includes Board Certified Pediatricians, Hospitalists, and 24/7 Anesthesiologists.
Describe your area(s) of focus within OB/GYN. Delivering babies is a lot of fun. Women’s health care is changing because technology is expanding. It is a great area of medicine for life-long learners. By bring daVinnci surgery options to my patients I am able to offer them minimally invasive solutions. I also enjoy working with high risk OB patients as well as later age mothers, addressing their specific risk factors and care.
Describe your personality and how it plays a part in the way you interact with patients. I put patients at ease. It’s my job to worry, so the patient doesn’t have to. I pay attention to the details.
What are your passions outside of medicine? (hobbies, activities, community involvements, etc.) I enjoy the lake, golf, flower gardening, and cooking.
