    Dr. Goettl was born and raised in the river valley area of St. Clair/Mankato, Minnesota. This is where his love of the outdoors began and continues to be his passion outside of work. He enjoys camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, yard work, grilling, and riding ATVs. Dr. Goettl wanted to settle with his family in a smaller community. His wife, Julia Bates, PA-C, and he keep busy with three children, two cats, and one dog.

    He has training and background in broad-based rural general surgery including c-sections, benign gynecology, vasectomies and endovenous ablations.

    "As a general surgeon, I enjoy the breadth of operations that we perform," said Dr. Goettl. "Specifically, I like minimally-invasive abdominal surgery, which includes laparoscopy and using the DaVinci robot for hernia repairs, gallbladders, and colon surgery."

    He provides a wide range of surgical services including minimally invasive and complex procedures.
