Lutheran Health Physicians expands family medicine services to DeKalb County

Lutheran Health Physicians (LHP) will expand its family medicine practice into DeKalb County in January. With this expansion, family medicine physician Scott Armstrong, DO, as well as advance practice providers Tina Leavell, PA, and Nicole Sanderson, NP, will be joining Lutheran Health Physicians and providing patient care in Auburn.

Located off Smaltz Way, on the west side of Auburn, this location will initially offer primary care services and on-site lab services. Space is available for additional specialists in the future.

In addition to LHP’s presence in DeKalb County, Optimum Performance Sports has been selected to serve as the exclusive athletic training provider for DeKalb Central Schools.

“The development of this new access point is a logical next step for Lutheran Health Physicians, building upon OPS’ new relationship with DeKalb Central Schools and connecting the more than 200 Lutheran Preferred and 600 Three Rivers Preferred covered lives in DeKalb County to more conveniently located care,” Dan Konow, CEO, Lutheran Health Physicians, said in a statement. “In addition, we are thrilled to welcome these three outstanding providers each of whom has close ties to the Auburn community.”

Family Medicine physicians are trained to care for men, women and children of all ages, providing a full range of services, including routine check-ups, managing chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and arthritis, and diagnosis and treatment of infections, injuries and much more. Appointments for new and existing patients can be scheduled online at lutheranhealthphysicians.com, and appointments with any Auburn providers can be made by calling (260) 927-1756.

LHP currently serves northeastern Indiana with 89 family medicine providers and more than 30 locations.
