(Atlantic) Dr. Ojash Raval will be joining Atlantic Medical Center (AMC) in September 2014. Dr. Raval is currently completing his residency at Mercy Hospital Family Medicine Residency program in Des Moines. He will provide comprehensive family medicine services, including obstetrics.
“We are very excited to have Dr. Raval join our practice,” said Dr. Seann Atkinson, AMC Family Medicine Physician. “He will be a wonderful asset to our clinic, hospital and community.”
In addition to caring for patients at Atlantic Medical Center, Dr. Raval will be on staff at Cass County Memorial Hospital. “Dr. Raval comes to us with the highest recommendations, including his selection as chief resident,” noted Pat Markham, CCMH Administrator. “He has been a leader in his residency training program, both clinically and in the adoption of electronic medical records for the Mercy residency program. We are very pleased to add such a well-qualified physician to care for our patients throughout Southwest Iowa.”
Dr. Raval grew up in Fort Dodge, Iowa, and earned his bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University with a double major in Biology and Psychology. He graduated from the Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center in 2011. After completing a one-year internship at St. Petersburg General Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, he returned to Des Moines to complete his family medicine residency. “I want to practice in a smaller community so I can really know my patients, and provide the full-scope of care,” Dr. Raval said. “When I was ready to look for a practice opportunity I thought of Atlantic immediately. I have friends in the area and know the great reputation of the medical community and the community as a whole. My recent visits with the Atlantic Medical Center physicians and hospital staff have only confirmed my initial impressions that Atlantic will be a great place for me to live and care for patients.”
Dr. Raval will complete his family medicine residency in August 2014 and begin practice in Atlantic in September 2014.
