Drake A. Gashkoff, MD
I treat every patient as if they were a member of my own family. My goal is to make sure our community, friends, family and neighbors are at their best so they can live the life they want to live. I believe in using evidence-based medicine to achieve these goals. It’s very important to me that we tackle the chief complaint in the moment, but also carve out a path for preventive medicine to keep the future health of the patient at its absolute best. I also enjoy providing education to help patients better understand their existing medical conditions. I strongly believe that patient education improves the doctor-patient relationship and ultimately results in better care and outcomes.

Within family medicine, I am interested in combating the main components that predispose to heart disease which include: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, and obesity. I have a special interest in lifestyle medicine.
I enjoy traveling and outdoor adventures such as camping, fishing and kayaking. I also enjoy cooking, planting and spending quality time with family and friends.
