Last updated: November 8, 2023

ThedaCare is thrilled to introduce our newest providers and learn what inspires them to improve the health and well-being of our patients and empower them to live their unique, best lives.

Angela Amos, MD

Family Medicine, ThedaCare Physicians-Waupaca

“I enjoy connecting with patients of all ages and being present for key life moments, from celebrating new births to supporting families in difficult end-of-life decisions. I have an interest in obstetrics, women’s health, and gynecologic procedures. I was drawn to this specialty as I have had the privilege of providing prenatal care to pregnant mothers, delivering babies and, then, continuing their care for years to come.”

Andrew Dunn, DO

Family Medicine, ThedaCare Physicians-Neenah

“Working within a team to provide individualized advice and guidance, I help empower patients to take an active role in their health decisions. I have a special interest in treating men’s health issues, particularly related to weight management and overall well-being.

“My role is to help navigate the path to achieve a wide range of health goals, always with the patients’ best interests in mind. I see myself as a partner in their health journey and am committed to long-term support.”

Jacob Gorney, MD

Hospitalist, ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Appleton and ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah

“My approach to health care is to evaluate each patient as a whole and individualize their care based on not only their physical ailments, but also their emotional, social, and economic needs. I believe everyone has the equal right to high-quality medical care regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation/identity, or background. In my internal medicine role, I find satisfaction in the diverse range of cases and the collaboration with a multidisciplinary team from the point of case admission to discharge.”

Joshua Gorney, MD

Hospitalist, ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Appleton and ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah

“My approach to patient care is to treat patients as if they were my own family members, ensuring they remain well-informed about their treatment plans and fully comprehend their medical conditions and post-hospitalization care. I am committed to delivering compassionate, personalized care without regard to people’s background or socioeconomic status. I find great satisfaction in the opportunity to assist patients and enjoy offering my support during a critical time in their life.”

Sandra Groenewold, MD

Psychiatry, ThedaCare Behavioral Health

“Patients come to me at a difficult, low point in their life and share information they may have never talked about with anyone. I am honored to have the opportunity to listen, validate, and partner with them to create an individualized treatment plan to help them move forward and feel better. 

“I take a trauma-informed care approach to providing care to my patients. This helps me see the patient from a holistic perspective and to understand that things may have happened in their lives that shaped their outlook and responses to life. I strive to create a comfortable environment for my patients, so they feel safe sharing their symptoms and story with me.”

Melissa Laughlin Holtz, MSW

Social Work, Mental Health Clinician, ThedaCare Behavioral Health

“I like to use a combination of therapy methods, including mindfulness-based, person-centered, interpersonal, behavioral, and cognitive-behavioral approaches. My goal is to empower my patients by providing feedback, assigning work, and offering tools to help them learn coping skills.

“With empathy and compassion, I support my patients during challenging times and help them make positive changes. Seeing improvement in their well-being brings me great satisfaction.”

Hannah Kerkhof, PA-C

Physician Assistant, ThedaCare Physicians-Shawano

“My goal is to provide up-to-date medical care with the latest research. I encourage open and honest communication, making it easier for patients to share their concerns, ask questions, and express their preferences. 

“The most rewarding part of my job is the opportunity to offer care precisely when patients need it most. I ensure patients receive medical attention promptly to improve overall outcomes.”

Mark Norris, MD

Family Medicine, ThedaCare Physicians-Appleton North

“I am passionate about helping patients navigate the complex world of health care. I offer my guidance and support to ensure they can make informed decisions, access the right resources, and have a better understanding of their overall health.

“My approach to health care revolves around building a patient-provider relationship. I prioritize meeting patients where they are and tailoring customized treatment plans to help them achieve their health and wellness goals.”

Amber Nusz, APRN

Nurse Practitioner, Family Medicine, ThedaCare Physicians-Tigerton

“My number one priority when providing care is listening to my patients. Understanding the individual challenges each patient faces is important when guiding them about their health. I consider it an honor that patients trust me with their care.”

Courtney Yenter, DNP

Nurse Practitioner, Family Medicine, ThedaCare Physicians-Oshkosh

“My approach to care focuses on empowerment. I work with patients in a partnership to create an individualized care plan, giving them the education, tools, and resources needed to positively affect their health.
