About Me

If you need primary care, Leah Prestbo, MD, would love to help you at Avera Medical Group Family Health Center – Sioux Falls.

Care for All Ages

Growing up on a dairy farm near Wall, SD, Dr. Prestbo had an interest in science and interpersonal communication from a young age. Her mother and grandmother were both nurses as well, so she was exposed to what they were doing in their careers day-to-day and wanted to be a part of it.

She chose family medicine because she enjoys providing services and treating patients at every stage of their lives.

"The best part of my job is interacting with patients and helping them prevent disease and manage risks to their health."

While Dr. Prestbo treats patients of all ages, she also operates a bone health clinic within her Avera practice that provides patients with a close look at bone health and fracture prevention.

In the long run, Dr. Prestbo hopes her patients say that she always has their best interests in mind.

Active Lifestyle

Outside of work, Dr. Prestbo loves to travel and work on home improvement projects with her husband. She enjoys knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking and woodworking. In the summer, he and her husband like going to the lake with their miniature dachshunds.
