Dennis Chakua, Family Nurse Practitioner

Dennis came to the United States when his family immigrated to the US from Kisumu, Kenya when Dennis was 11 years old.  Dennis attended Bemidji College then transferred to UND to peruse his education in Medicine.  Dennis worked for eight years at Sanford in Fargo, primarily at an ICU nurse and spent some time in Oncology also.  After visiting Grafton he liked the feel of a smaller community, and he feels UMC provides high quality care and likes the benefit of having a hospital with many services available, including the attached clinic and is very interested doing whatever he can to help decrease the need for patients to travel to receive healthcare.  Dennis is looking forward to having a full practice to include clinic and hospital.
