Philosophy of care
“I help patients navigate the complexities of medicine to determine how to best manage their health. Ultimately, it is the patient’s choice as to how they want to care for their health – it is my job to help them navigate health care and make informed decisions that are right for them.”
Why Dr. Rasmussen went into medicine
“My family was good friends with our physician in the small town where I grew up, and he was a role model for me from early on. I was also drawn to the breadth of the work, the critical thinking and continuous learning, as well as the important role I can play in patients’ lives and in the health of a community.”
Favorite advice to give to patients
“Invest in your health and wellness to continue enjoying the things that make your life meaningful.”
Sisseton, South Dakota
