David Paustian, DO

General Surgery


I believe that my interest in medicine started with my grandfather’s talks on the farm.  He had desired to enter medicine but after his dad’s illness and death, he took over farming after 8thgrade.  I have been passionate and motivated about surgery all through my training.  I appreciate the  intricate nuances and complexities in this specialty. My experiences have equipped me with an exceptional ability to manage challenging cases while maintaining my patient centered focus on quality and quality outcomes.

I like to use my free time productively.  I spend time and exercise with my wife at our gym doing cardio and strength training.  We do bike riding. I enjoy working outside on our hobby farm with the cattle and chickens. I  also spend some time working with leather and hobby trains.
