Alan R. Lindemann, M.D.
Outstanding Rural Health Care Provider (North Dakota 2012)
Dr. Lindemann completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at St. Paul Ramsey, now Regions Hospital, in St. Paul and began practicing in 1989. When he began delivering babies, the C-section rate at his hospital was 12.5 percent, and considered high. With the advance of corporate medicine, that rate has risen to 32%, well above the medically necessary rate, considered to be about 10%.
Dr. Lindemann has delivered over 6000 babies without any maternal deaths and no babies with cerebral palsy. He has delivered breech babies, including breech twins, without the knee-jerk reaction for a C-section. He believes that if practitioners pay enough attention to the mother and the unborn baby, they can refrain from rushing into the quick and easy answer, the all-too-often-performed C-section.
Now practicing in rural areas where deliveries in local hospitals are disappearing at a rapid rate, Dr. Lindemann no longer does deliveries, but he does offer pregnancy consults.
There are some special family practice physicians who recognize that if they listen long enough to what their patients tell them, the patients will often diagnose themselves. This is a critical part of coordinating patient care, in looking for the loose ends that may go unnoticed by a specialist. As any of Dr. Lindemann’s patients will tell you, he is well-known for taking whatever time is necessary to really listen to his patients.
Jackie is the first person you see when you walk into the clinic, and usually the first person you will talk to when you call Harvey Clinic.
Jackie has worked in the medical field in one form or another since 1982. As a Certified Nursing Assistance, she gave home care as well as worked in facilities of care giving such as assisted living, nursing homes, and medical floors. Then 18 years ago she became interested in pharmacy work and became a Registered Technician, including hospital and retail settings. Jackie gained her National Certification in Pharmacy and continues to renew this certification along with her CNA license.
Jackie’s background has given her the background to be especially helpful with patient advocacy, whether it’s dealing with Insurance disputes, medication renewals, or all the many healthcare prequalificaiton programs that grow every year.
Jackie is a strong advocate because she is a great researcher. Jackie has assisted many employers with start up of new projects, most recently with our new telemedicine visits. If you have a question about your insurance or the many healthcare forms patients now have to fill out, just ask Jackie. She will be happy to help you wade through the healthcare jungle.
