The team at Chippewa County Montevideo Hospital is so excited to welcome to our community and CCMH, Dr. Nicholas Taurinskas, MD.  Dr. Taurinskas studied at the University of Minnesota Duluth/Twin Cities and has completed his residency at the Duluth Family Medicine Program. Dr. Taurin­skas’ specialties include family practice and obstetrics.  “I chose family practice because it offers the broadest and most comprehensive way for me to care for patients and of course few things compare to the thrill of delivering a baby, it’s a monumental occasion in someone’s life that I get to be a part of.”

Dr. Taurinskas is originally from Chisago City, Minnesota. His family includes his wife, Trisha and they are expecting their first baby later this year.  Dr. Taurinskas enjoys fishing and hiking. He has a passion for hunting and plans on trying out the famed pheasant hunting of Southwest Minnesota. He also enjoys karaoke and playing the guitar although he says he is not very good.
