NEW ULM - New Ulm Medical Center (NUMC) recently welcomed Tawnya Kreilkamp, MD, a family medicine physician who previously practiced at Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont. Kreilkamp is a native of Minnesota, growing up near Elmore in the southcentral region of the state.
She earned her medical degree from American University of the Caribbean, St. Maarten. Her family medicine residency was completed at Mercy Health System in Janesville, Wis. in 2009.
"I became a physician because I enjoy helping others and the challenges involved in medicine," she said. "The best part of my work is counseling patients about preventative measures and teaching patients to take appropriate steps to ensure they stay healthy."

Her move to NUMC was part of a search for a "better fit" for her and her family. "I met with the family medicine physicians here, and it seemed exactly what I wanted," she said. "They all seemed to get along so well."
Kreilkamp and her husband, Todd, have one son, Logan.
