Nathan Strandmark, DO

Dr. Nathan Strandmark, who is Board-certified in Family Medicine, joined Plaza Medical Center in August 2007.  He never had any doubt when he was in medical school at Kansas City University of Medicine and Bioscience that he would practice anywhere other than in his home town.  It had been his dream, even while he was playing basketball at Garden City Community College, to return home to care for the medical needs of his friends and their families.

During summer vacation and holidays from college and medical school, Dr. Strandmark could often be found at Plaza Medical Center learning and helping.  Now he is "paying it forward" by mentoring and teaching medical students as well as those aspiring to become nurse practicioners or physician assistants.  You might even find some high shool students "shadowing" him while they are exploring a career in heatlh care.

Dr. Strandmark, his wife and three children, love water sports so when the weather and time permit can be found at their cabin on the lake.

Bryan Stucky, MD

Dr. Bryan Stucky graduated from Kansas University School of Medicine in 2009.  He completed his residency with Via Christi Family Medicine, where in 2012, he was named the outstanding resident.  In August of that same year, he returned to his hometown and began practice at Plaza Medical Center.  He chose family practice because he enjoys the challenge of treating patients who present with a diversity of ailments.
Dr. Stucky enjoys his time away from the clinic by playing tennis and riding his dirt bike.  He also likes jeeping in the mountains, so when he, his wife and two small children are able to get away, they head to Colorado.
