After growing up in a rural community in Iowa, the Dr. Schwake relished the chance to serve a small-town community.
“I’ve always hoped to have the opportunity to practice in a location like the Upper Peninsula,” he said. “I know from my own family’s experience the challenge of finding specialty care in smaller communities, and I’m glad to be able to offer gastroenterology care to the community without traveling hundreds of miles.
“And it goes without saying, the UP is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and will now be able to call home.”
