 Third Year Residents

 

 Julia Farruggia, M.D.

When Julia is not working she enjoys murder mysteries and eating spicy foods. I don't know about you, but my mom told me you shouldn't do those things at the same time because it would give you nightmares. Either Julia likes being scared or my mom lied. She is also at the expert level on guitar hero and a pro organizer of all things. Really-she is-we've noticed this about her.

  • Undergraduate: University of Notre Dame
  • Hometown: Rapid City, SD
  • Medical interests: Outpatient Medicine, chronic disease management, Musculoskeletal Medicine, Preventative Medicine, and finding new and integrative ways to create healthier lifestyles for patients

 

 Abby Flannagan, D.O.

Abby is our resident softball pro. She even played for Team U.S.A. in Prague. Just know that is she is recruiting you to do residency training with us, she probably has plans to turn you into a softball player too or at least a fan of our team.

When she was 5 years old, Abby's plan was to be an anesthesiologist. We are thankful that somewhere between 5 and 25 years old she did some rethinking about that choice.

  • Medical School: Des Moines University
  • Undergraduate: Coe College
  • Hometown: Manchester, IA
  • Medical Interests: OB and Women's Health
 

 Megan Peterson, D.O.

Megan is a sports enthusiast having played volleyball, basketball, softball, soccer and track and field. She can't tell us what her favorite olympic event is though because she hasn't ever watched them. What? Maybe she would rather play than observe or maybe it's too hard to watch TV and decorate tea towels with needle point at the same time.

When Megan was 5 years old she aspired to be an adult. Check!

  • Medical school: Des Moines University
  • Undergraduate: Central College (Pella, IA)
  • Hometown: Osage, IA
  • Medical interests: Women's health, providing Osteopathic manipulative medicine, Hospice/Palliative Medicine
 

 Lindsey Pogge, D.O.

When Lindsey was a child, her dream was to be a math teacher. She would often torture, I mean encourage, her siblings and friends to play school with her. That dream continued until she was in high school. We think she has some pretty amazing friends and family!

Lindsey enjoys reading and prefers to read them in one sitting. We just want to know how to went with Ware and Peace or Little Women. That would be like a 7 day book bender.

 Seth Streeter, D.O. 

Seth is that guy who likes to spend time doing "guy" stuff-hunting, fishing, golfing, watching football, etc, etc. He claims to be an excellent trout fisherman although we haven't seen the fruits of that labor yet. I'm starting to wonder if he reads Field and Stream magazine and spits too? Hmm...Ask Seth about his trip to Western Turkey and visiting the sites of The Iliad. 

  • Medical school: Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine

  • Hometown: Prairie City, IA
  • Medical interests: procedures
 

 Ericka Tank, M.D.

Ericka enjoys running, mountain biking, camping, boating, basketball, track (hold please-this writer needs to rest a minute) softball, trap shooting, hunting and target practice. Whew!!

Ericka likes listening to Shania Twain and she is also a fan of Nickelback and don't expect an apology for that-it's not going to happen. She can't name her favorite local eatery. We think it's because she doesn't have time to check out any of them.
