Dr. Richard Larson has joined the staff of the Greenwood Clinic as its second physician. Dr. Larson, a native of Bagley, Minnesota, comes to the clinic as a specialist in family medicine.

He received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Dakota, and completed two years of Medical School there. Larson completed his M.D. degree at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and did his internship at the Health Sciences Center of the University of Manitoba. He entered private practice at Cumberland, Wisconsin and then completed a family medicine residency at the University of Virginia.

Dr. Larson, his wife Catrion, and their 6 ½ month old son Matthew live at 512 South Main, Greenwood. They purchased the former Dr. Stuart Grossman residence. It was while living in Cumberland that the Larsons decided they wanted to stay in Wisconsin. Larson was looking for a small town practice, separate from a hospital practice, somewhere in Wisconsin. They are both Cross Country Ski enthusiasts, and along with this interest, they like to fish and are looking forward to doing some canoeing on Black River, that is when the water gets a little higher. They also would like to try their hand at “gardening.”

Catrion Larson is a native of Edinburgh, Scotland, where she received her degree in education from the University of Edinburg. Part of Dr. Larson’s training included a six-week rotation at Scotland’s Edinburgh University, and this is where they met and were married. Catrion has now been in the United States for over four years and has found she enjoys the United States very much. Several visits and calls from her family have kept her from getting homesick.
