Philosophy of Medicine

"I wanted to practice medicine because it is a profession where you can help others and be challenged mentally. I also loved that fact that I can make connections with patient's and families throughout the course of their lives. I want to provide full spectrum care to the families in the greater Grand Forks community."

    I had a really positive experience with the Altru staff. Dr. Waind was really outstanding. He reviewed all my chart info, talked about surgery risks, and was very reassuring when talking about the surgery and recovery.
