Agnesian HealthCare, with the Fond du Lac Regional Clinic, is pleased to announce the addition of Xian-feng Gu, MD, neurologist, and other members of Lakeside Neurocare team effective July 1, 2020.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Gu has served with Lakeside Neurocare providing patients with comprehensive neurology services, as well as education and encouragement, and being an active partner in the management of their neurologic needs.
He is joined by Lacy Ihde, MSN, APNP-C, and Renae Patrick, RN, MSN, APNP-C.
Lakeside Neurocare has been providing patients in the Fond du Lac, Oshkosh and surrounding communities with highly-specialized neurologic care for the past 40 years. Lakeside Neurocare was founded in 1976 by Kenneth M. Viste, Jr. Dr. Gu serves as the current owner.
“I have enjoyed a long-term partnership with Agnesian HealthCare,” Dr. Gu says. “Transitioning our services under this new umbrella will help us ensure that vital neurology services continue for the long term in this area.”
Dr. Gu, along with the nurse practitioners, will continue to see patients at Ripon Medical Center and St. Agnes Hospital.
Appointments with the neurology team as of July 1 can still be scheduled by calling (920) 923-5526. Services will no longer be offered in Berlin or Oshkosh, and staff will help patients transition their care.
“Dr. Gu is a highly-respected physician in the Fond du Lac area,” says Mike Drees, Fond du Lac Regional Clinic chief operating officer. “We are honored that he has chosen to become part of the Agnesian HealthCare team.”
The Fond du Lac Regional Clinic will actively recruit other neurologists to help cover existing patient needs.
Dr. Gu and neurology team members have been offering neurology care services at St. Agnes Hospital, and as a result, are very familiar with the resources available through Agnesian HealthCare.
“During our time in Fond du Lac, we have worked closely with Agnesian HealthCare providers using available resources,” according to Dr. Gu. “Fond du Lac area individuals and families can feel reassured that the finest providers and technology are readily accessible locally with all the services of Agnesian HealthCare available to them.”
