About Me

Family medicine physicians have the opportunity to care for whole families — whether that’s the health of mom and baby during pregnancy or the distinctive needs of older adulthood.

“It’s really fun to stay with patients through their whole lives and be a trusted part of the family,” said McKenzie Veldhuizen, MD, family medicine physician at Avera Medical Group McGreevy Dawley Farm in Sioux Falls, SD.

Expert Care in Family Medicine

Family medicine is also known as primary care, which often focuses on preventing and identifying conditions through screenings. Because of this, primary care providers are usually the first to recognize health conditions before referring the patient to a specialist.

Trust Dr. Veldhuizen to be on the forefront of your health. Some of the services you can schedule with her are:

  • Immunizations
  • Health screenings for general wellness, school, sports or military
  • Women’s health
  • Pre- and postnatal care
  • Laboratory services, stress tests, X-rays and ultrasound procedures

While Dr. Veldhuizen provides the spectrum of care, she’s especially interested in women’s health for young adult females. Being a mentor and expert throughout pregnancy is personally rewarding for her. In addition, she offers colposcopy, a diagnostic procedure for the cervix and other structures.

Active Lifestyle

Dr. Veldhuizen enjoys spending time with her family and two dogs. Some of her interests include running, reading, snowboarding, hiking and traveling.

She’s an advanced speaker of the Spanish language.
