    Bio

    Dr. Timothy Kufahl joined St. Luke's Duluth Internal Medicine Associates in September 2015 and is board certified in family medicine. He is also a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians, the Lake Superior Medical Society, and the Wilderness Medical Society.

    Before he chose family medicine, Dr. Kufahl studied engineering, physical therapy, biochemistry, and basic science research. Throughout these studies, he felt something was missing—interacting personally with patients. Dr. Kufahl spent much of his training at rural clinics, and because of its personal aspect, knew that family medicine was where he belonged.

    Dr. Kufahl revolves his practice around forming a strong relationship with his patients. His philosophy of care is that the patient-physician relationship is a partnership built on honesty and trust. One piece of medical advice that Dr. Kufahl would give patients is to get eight hours of sleep per night; sleep is the most underrated aspect of physical and mental health.

    Dr. Kufahl grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, exploring the outdoors. Though his medical training took him elsewhere, he is glad to be back in the Northwoods in Duluth. Dr. Kufahl and his wife chose Duluth, not only because of the great outdoors scene, but also because of the growing community of young professionals and the outstanding medical and arts communities. When he is not outdoors, Dr. Kufahl can be found woodworking, slow-cooking, fermenting, or home brewing.
