About Me

Trust Jesse Nieuwenhuis, MD, at Avera Medical Group Dell Rapids in Dell Rapids, SD, to care for you and your family. A primary care physician, Dr. Nieuwenhuis supports all your health care needs—seeing patients of all ages, from children through geriatrics. Personable and friendly, he chose to be a family physician so he could practice in the place he loves, the rural Midwest.

Compassionate Care for Your Family

As a physician in primary care, Dr. Nieuwenhuis chose to pursue medicine as a career because he had eye surgery as a child—and was inspired by the qualities he observed in the doctor who treated him. He loves making patients feel at ease by laughing together and asking questions about them. Dr. Nieuwenhuis strives to build strong relationships with his patients and entire community.

His special interests include:

Dr. Nieuwenhuis’ advice to patients is, “Look at how your choices are affecting your overall health—and make choices that are best for a long life and a high quality of life.” You can ask Dr. Nieuwenhuis any health question, no matter what it is—and he’ll be there to help provide an answer or find a specialist who can. His goal is to always address your health concerns.

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Nieuwenhuis likes to spend time with his family. He also likes to be outdoors, including running and biking in the summer. In the winter, he enjoys reading a good book beside a cozy fireplace.
