About Me

Expert & Compassionate Care for Women

For experienced and compassionate care for your obstetric and gynecologic needs, trust James Wagner, DO, a board-certified OB/GYN at Avera Medical Group Obstetrics & Gynecology in Mitchell, SD.

Dr. Wagner provides specialized care for women – everything from annual well-woman exams and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery to prenatal and pregnancy care.

“There are a lot of ups and downs when you’re taking care of people, but OB/GYN is for the most part a happy field,” he says. “The best part of my job is being able to interact with my patients and watch their families grow.”

Dr. Wagner advises his patients to try and stay balanced physically, mentally and spiritually. “You’ll persevere throughout life much better if you have balance,” he says.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Wagner enjoys restoring old hotrods, hiking, biking, fishing and hunting. “I love outdoor activities and mostly like to fish and hunt birds – everything from doves to pheasants.”
