About Me

In college, Christopher Baumbach, MD, enjoyed studying various avenues of science. He wanted to add a personal touch to his interest, which led him to pursue a career in medicine.

Dr. Baumbach serves the whole family and individuals of all ages — babies, children, teens, adults and older adults. He practices as a family medicine at Avera Medical Group Family Health Center – Sioux Falls.

Expert Care for the Whole Family

Family medicine providers offer services related to common conditions and illnesses. Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Immunizations
  • Health screenings for general wellness, school, sports or military
  • Well-child and well-woman exams
  • Pre- and postnatal care
  • Post-surgery care
  • Laboratory services, stress tests, X-rays and ultrasound procedures

“Along with family medicine, I also encourage preventive medicine,” said Dr. Baumbach. “It’s a way to help the patient to live normally on a day-to-day basis and prevent disease.”

Active Lifestyle

When he’s not at work, he enjoys staying active with his family. Dr. Baumbach is into distance running — completing many half-marathons — as well as golfing and hiking. He’s married and loves raising his children and supporting them in their activities.
