David Arends is returning to the PMC Clinic where he will see patients 4 day per week in December, beginning on Monday, December 3rd. Pondera Medical Center is thrilled to offer David’s services to our Clinic patients once again. David has long been a popular provider internally at PMC and throughout the community, both in the Clinic and Emergency room. After the New Year, David will continue to see patients in the clinic 3 days per week and also continue his work in the PMC Emergency Room.
“I’m so happy to be working again in the PMC Clinic. My sabbatical from family practice allowed me to explore important professional venues I could not have done otherwise and I’ve seen a marked improvement in my clinical skills. It is important for every medical professional to keep learning new things, expanding their medical experiences, which is what I sought to do. I feel refreshed and ready to get back to the work I love the most.” David Arends.
David received his bachelor’s degree from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK. After 10 years of teaching in secondary education David decided to pursue a medical career and completed his physician assistant studies at Bayley Seaton Hospital in New York City. He has specialized in family practice and urgent care for over 20 years in various clinical settings, including 3 years in a small village in Belize, Central America and more than 9 years at PMC Clinic. Over time, David’s professional interests began to shift towards emergency medicine. He focused his ongoing training in this specialty and worked in the emergency department at PMC from July 1 of 2017 through November of 2018. He holds certifications in ACLS, PALS, ATLS, and CALS. He and his wife, Jane, reside in Conrad and enjoy community involvement through various artistic venues including the Pondera Players and directing the Conrad Community Choir.
