Husband and wife physicians join local Gundersen Clinic


Drs. Chris and Sara Mees

Gundersen Prairie du Chien Clinic is proud to announce that Chris Mees, MD; and his wife, Sara Mees, MD; have joined their medical staff.

The Mees will both provide a full spectrum of primary care services at Gundersen including health and wellness care for all ages, women’s health, management of chronic conditions and obstetric care and deliveries. “We are very excited to have the Meeses join our clinic and our community,” exclaims Sue Fassbinder, clinic manager at the Gundersen Prairie du Chien Clinic. “Their addition means that expectant mothers can once again receive all their prenatal care and deliver their baby in Prairie du Chien with a Gundersen physician. It can be stressful to have to travel for health care, especially when it comes to giving birth. We hope that the Mees’ services will help relieve that stress.”

A native of Devils Lake, N.D., Dr. Sara received her medical degree from University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks, N.D. and performed her Family Medicine Residency at Altru Health System in Grand Forks. “We were looking for a place to practice the full spectrum of Family Medicine in a smaller community, and Prairie du Chien fulfills all the ‘wants’ on our list,” comments Dr. Sara. “Prairie feels like the town I grew up in and seems to be a great place to raise and continue to grow our family.”

Dr. Chris is a native of Bismarck, N.D. and also received his medical degree from University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks, N.D.; before performing his Family Medicine Residency at Altru Health System in Grand Forks. “When we visited Prairie du Chien we really liked the community as well as the staff at the clinic. We are excited to rebuild the obstetric practice and to be a part of the community,” Dr. Chris says.

In their free time the Meeses enjoy spending time with family, especially their daughter, Nora. Dr. Sara also enjoys walking the dogs, running and mountain biking. Dr. Chris likes bird hunting, fishing and soccer.
