Longtime Dean Clinic Pediatrician Set to Retire
Conrad Andringa, MD Will Retire After Almost 50 Years with Dean Clinic
Conrad Andringa, MD is the longest serving physician in Dean Clinic’s history. After 47 years with the organization, he will say goodbye to the thousands of patients and families he treated, as well as colleagues he worked with.
Dr. Andringa will officially retire on July 1, 2015. As the 22nd provider to formally join the original Dean Clinic physician group, he takes with him significant knowledge of our rich history and will be greatly missed by countless colleagues and patients.
“I was lucky enough to not have to go to work,” says Dr. Andringa. “I got to go to the clinic for 47 years and practice medicine. It was fun, not work.”
In addition to his dedicated work with Dean Clinic’s pediatric patients, Dr. Andringa could often be found on the sidelines of James Madison Memorial’s high school hockey and football games where he provided care to athletes. He has served as a volunteer physician at our Dean & St. Mary’s Neighborhood Asthma Clinic for the last four years and has been chairman of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Medical Advisory Committee for the past 35 years.
Dr. Andringa states the most difficult part of retiring is how much he will miss the relationships he has built over the years with patients and their parents.
Dean Clinic would like to thank Dr. Andringa for the many wonderful years he dedicated to improving the lives of children and the Dean Clinic organization.
