Mille Lacs Health System in Onamia welcomes Dr. Ranjita Adhikari to their family of care.
Dr. Adhikari comes to the area from Altru Health System in Grand Forks, North Dakota, where she completed her Family practice residency. Prior to that, she received her medical training in Bangladesh, and did her first year of residency in Mckeesport, Pennsylvania, then finishing her residency at Altru.
As a child, Dr. Adhikari says a couple of her father’s friends were physicians, and she’d often accompany them to hospital. “I’d watch, so fascinated,” she says. “That white coat meant to me ‘there is a person who could heal people, and save lives.’ That is what I saw for myself and my future.”
