Vermillion Medical Clinic Adds Physician Assistant

Vermillion Medical Clinic is pleased to announce the addition of Alex Lunneborg, a family medicine physician assistant as a medical provider at the clinic.

Lunneborg earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Radiologic Technology from Presentation College in Aberdeen, South Dakota, in May 2017. After graduating and working in the X-ray field for a couple of years, however, he found that spending his days solely in that department wasn’t completely fulfilling to him. He then enrolled in the University of South Dakota Physician Assistant Studies Program, earning his Master of Science degree in physician assistant studies in July 2021.

His first day of providing care at Vermillion Medical Clinic will be September 13th, when he will hold some daytime hours as well as some Convenient Care hours.
