Lake Region Healthcare (LRH) welcomed Kiana Deal, Physician Assistant, to our medical staff in 2016. She works full time at the Battle Lake Clinic with Dr. Daniel Lembcke to provide primary care services for all ages.
Kiana received her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, and her Bachelor of Arts in Biology with emphasis in Health and Medical Sciences and Minors in Chemistry and Psychology from Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Deal completed her preceptorship at Lake Region Healthcare under the mentorship of Mark Vukonich, MD; Brooke Hills, FNP; and Mary Bressler, FNP. She has worked as a CNA at Johnson Memorial Health Services in Dawson, MN since 2004 and at St. Francis Healthcare in Breckenridge since 2010.
Deal is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Minnesota Academy of Physician Assistants. Her professional interests include preventive health and wellness, women’s health and dermatology.
When asked why she chose to practice at Lake Region Healthcare Deal said it was “because of the phenomenal experience I had as a student while at LRH. They have a great group of providers and support staff, covering a wide variety of specialties, and I am excited to be a part of the team. Also, after growing up in a rural community, I am thrilled to be going back to my roots, and practicing in a small, family friendly community.”
In her free time she enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, 4-wheeling, traveling, and watching and playing sports, particularly football. She is married to Justin and they have a dog named Bear, and a cat named Butters.
