Dr. Dennis Colby joined the Cresco Medical Clinic in November of 2002. Dr. Colby was born in Albert Lea, Minnesota, and grew up in Lake Mills, Iowa. He was drawn to medicine as a result of his mothers death from leukemia when he was six years old. That created in him the desire to heal others. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, and the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines. He did his internship at Northwest General Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is board certified in Family Practice Medicine and Occupational Medicine. Dr. Colby practiced for 22 years in Lake Mills prior to moving to Cresco. He spent 22 years on the sideline and mats as team doctor for high school football and wrestling. He was ambulance director for 19 years. He states he has never moved around very much and plans to stay in Cresco.
