New Internal Medicine physician joins CMC

Cambridge Medical Center is pleased to announce that Andrew Peltier, MD, internal medicine physician, joined the medical center in mid-July and is now seeing patients in Clinic F.

Dr. Peltier is board certified in internal medicine and has a special medical interest in diabetes and kidney disease. He received his medical degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School and completed an internal medicine residency at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.  Prior to coming to Cambridge Medical Center, Dr. Peltier was chief resident at Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

Internal medicine physicians help adolescents, adults and the elderly manage complex and common medical conditions. “Internal medicine is a specialty that is in high demand at Cambridge Medical Center, and we’re pleased that Dr. Peltier chose to practice in Cambridge,” said Dennis Doran, president of Cambridge Medical Center. “Dr. Peltier joins our other internal medicine physicians–Dr. Don Deye and Dr. John Ruddy—in providing medical care to patients who wish to receive care from this type of primary care specialist.”

Dr. Peltier was raised in Lakeville, near the Twin Cities, but credits the time he spent with the Rural Physician Associate Program (RPAP) as a medical student as influencing his decision to practice medicine in Cambridge. “I greatly enjoyed spending nine months of medical school as a participant in the RPAP program,” said Peltier. “That time shaped my medical education in many ways, and I look forward to pursuing a career in a smaller community.”

Dr. Peltier welcomes the opportunity to provide medical care to his new patients. Appointments can be made with Dr. Peltier by calling Cambridge Medical Center at 763-689-8700. Outside of his medical practice, Dr. Peltier enjoys spending time with his family (he and his wife have two young children), competing in marathons and triathlons, and waterskiing.
