OB/GYN joins Lakewood Health System

Erik Dovre, OB/GYN, has joined Lakewood Health System's growing Women's Health Team. Dovre is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is experienced in both normal and high-risk obstetrics, as well as general reproductive and gynecologic medicine.

"The addition of Dr. Dovre is part of our goal to build a strong women's health team to meet the growing demand for our services," said Craig Wolhowe, clinic services director.

Dovre is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School. He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo. A Moorhead native, Dovre has been a practicing OB/GYN in Wisconsin for the past 17 years.

"I have always practiced in a multidisciplinary setting in close collaboration with nurse midwives, nurse practitioners, and other physicians," said Dovre. "Lakewood's integrated team approach to women's health is therefore very familiar and appealing to me. I am excited to be part of this team."

Dovre sees patients at Lakewood's Staples and Pillager clinics.
