Prairie Lakes Healthcare System is pleased to welcome Dr. Aaron Pickrel to our team of hospitalists who manage the medical care for patients who are hospitalized at Prairie Lakes. Our Hospitalists are medical doctors with expertise in internal medicine and family practice.
Dr. Pickrel grew up in Watertown and is returning to Prairie Lakes Healthcare System where he was a Telemetry Technician from 2013 – 2015. He received his medical degree from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Spartanburg, South Carolina and completed his Internal Medicine Residency at the Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. During his time in school, he was involved with the Abbott Northwestern IM Residency Council, Student American Academy of Osteopathy, and was on the SDSU Wrestling team during Undergrad. In his free time, Dr. Pickrel enjoys spending time at Lake Kampeska with family and friends, hunting, and fishing in the area.
“I am happy to be back in Watertown where I grew up,” said Dr. Pickrel. “I look forward to giving back and giving care to the community that has always supported me.”
