Dr. Benjamin Stephenson,
PRIMARY CARE, CHIEF OF STAFF
Dr. Benjamin Stephenson graduated high school in Kansas City and attended the University of Kansas, where he obtained his undergraduate degree, graduate degree in medicine and completed his residency as a Jayhawk. Originally, Stephenson wanted to pursue a degree in anesthesia, but after spending time in a surgery department, his career path changed to be able to spend more of his time helping patients as a physician.
“I wanted more time with people and to be able to really help them — not just before surgery,” Dr. Stephenson said of his career choice.
Stephenson said he understands the concern of longevity of physicians in rural settings and wants the Haxtun and Fleming communities to know he and his family are here for the long-term.
“Stability is such a blessing to have,” he said. “I want to be here. I love it here.”
