Tyler Whitcomb, DO - Genesis Health System

Tyler Whitcomb, DO

There is nothing better in medicine than to see a patient improve while in the hospital and to be able to return home and resume their life.

I believe in putting the patient and their family first and doing my best to do what is right for the patient.

Areas Of Interest

I am interested in hospital based internal medicine.

I was born and raised in Fort Madison, Iowa where my parents still reside. I attended Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa for my undergraduate degree and received a B.S. in Biochemistry. I then moved onto Des Moines University where I completed a DO degree. I completed my internal medicine residency at Iowa Methodist in Des Moines, Iowa. I spent the next 4 years in Kansas City and then felt it was the right time to move back home to Eastern Iowa.

I enjoy watching a variety of world sports when I am at home; especially European soccer. I am a diehard Iowa Hawkeyes fan and look forward to making it to more football and basketball games.
