Tim is a graduate of Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Science degree for Physician Assistant and also passed the NCCPA Surgical Examination. Tim obtained his Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree from The University of Nebraska. He was previously an EMT-I-D with the EMS and served four active and two inactive duty years with the Marine Corps. Tim is associated and a member of American Academy of Physician Assistance (AAPA) and the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistance (NCCPA), a member of the Kansas Academy of Physician Assistants (KAPA) and Society of Emergency Medicine Physician Assistants (SEMPA). He holds certifications in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support-Experienced Provider (ACLS-EP), Pediatric Life Support (PALS), Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS), Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), and the S.T.A.B.L.E. program for newborn care.
Tim currently resides in Osborne, KS with his wife and together they have three daughters – one grown and two in high school. Tim has previously been in Family Medicine practice in Osborne at Sharp Memorial Clinic for the past 19 years. While in Osborne, he has also served on the City Council and was the Mayor of Osborne for one year and he enjoys leadership opportunities and groups that want to make a difference in the growth and betterment of the community.
“While at Osborne I had the opportunity to build a wonderful practice and many great friends. When looking for my next opportunity, I was drawn to Phillipsburg for several reasons. I had previously worked with Rex Walk, PCHS CEO, when he was the interim CEO at Osborne and had previously had business relationships with several staff at the facility. While visiting the facility and community, I was welcomed with warm greetings, smiles, and helpfulness that helped make the decision, along with a Board of Trustees that, from what I have seen, really has the community in mind for the long term goals for a stronger medical community for this county. My goal is to provide the best healthcare possible for the community and those that are fortunate to travel through this great land. I have been raised with some general truths and understandings: If you don’t work, you don’t eat. Leave it a better place than when you came. Remember where you come from! I am an ole farm boy at heart – raised on the farm with cattle, pigs, chickens, and a stubborn sheep every now and then. I believe that joining the medical team at Phillips County Health Systems will provide me with the opportunities to make a difference.”
Tim will be seeing patients in the clinic, hospital and emergency department. He will be in the clinic all day every Wednesday and covering the ER on Thursday and Fridays, while being in the clinic for acute/work-in patients when not in the ER. He will also be providing weekend ER coverage, along with our other providers, on a rotating basis. Tim has a passion for surgery and ER with a special interest in laceration repairs, trauma, and cardiac cases. He has been in private practice for Family Medicine for 19+ years and has worked with patients from newborn to geriatric. “As we say, from birth to the grave,” said Tim. “Someone has to be the voice of these people to make sure their medical wishes are upheld.”
Tim enjoys hunting, fishing, and dirt work with his bulldozer and skid steer. He appreciates how his wide variety of hobbies and experiences in farming and military helps him in his relationships with his patients. “We understand where each other comes from and can relate to a common ground,” stated Tim.
