We believe care should be close to home and Sheila Gemar, MD, embodies that approach to health. No one should have to travel hours to receive specialty care, especially for individuals experiencing sensitive urological issues. A urologist is a specialist that focuses on medical issues affecting the urinary system. They are typically visiting specialists that serve several health systems. Urology at Tri-County Health Care will now be even more convenient with her addition to the team.
Dr. Gemar comes to Tri-County Health Care with over two decades of experience in urology. For the majority of her career, she has been an asset to small communities and the people that make them special. As a young girl, she grew up in a rural town in South Dakota where her father worked in healthcare. Because of this, she spent most of her adolescence immersed in the care setting.
Early in her career, Dr. Gemar discovered her love for helping others while exploring surgical specialties. She encountered urological specialists that always seemed to love coming into work. Their love for the field would lead Dr. Gemar down a path of urological excellence.
“With an older population, you need to have a special place in your heart to care for these people.” – Dr. Sheila Gemar
