"As a physician in a small community, the community as a whole becomes your patient — not just those patients sitting in your exam room. You really are a part of the community as you take care of the entire community. For me, what helps me stay grounded is the idea that I’m in a unique position and I’ve been entrusted by my patients and this community with this task of trying to help them be healthy."
Sean Wherry, MD
"I really believe it is an honor to do what I do. This is part of my life and not just a job. I hope I never get to a point where I don’t feel that honor when I sit with a patient and talk about what’s going on in their life. If I can help them then I’ll do it, whether it’s removing an ingrown toenail or figuring out why they’ve had night sweats and unexpected weight loss over the last six months. It’s really just a great, great privilege and opportunity to do what I do."
Libby Bever, MD
“Willmar became a second home to me, and it's also become a second home for my career. CentraCare lets me have a life balance, see my family, and take excellent care of patients. What makes my job worthwhile is the personal connection with a patient that allows
me to help them have a better life.”

"I’m blessed that our clinic has always had “the patient comes first” as our culture. So, it’s really easy to re-ground into that purpose of just taking care of your patient."
