Expertise in Diabetes Care
In addition to family medicine, Dr. Ness has a special interest in caring for patients with diabetes. His passion for diabetes care grew from years of working with native populations – both in Ecuador, South America and throughout the Upper Midwest.
“I chose family medicine with a focus on diabetes because that’s the care that those populations needed most,” he says. “It’s also a good model of preventive medicine for all people because nutrition and exercise are the fundamentals.”
He speaks fluent Spanish, passable Portuguese and has basic conversation skills in the Lakota and Ojibwe languages.
In his free time, Dr. Ness enjoys playing the drums, guitar and singing – on his own and in several bands. He also like to garden and exercise, especially running, lifting weights and punching a bag.
