Dr. Schlueter grew up in Fergus Falls and began his immersion into the medical field at an early age. In high school, he became an orderly to fill his spare time. With very low pay, the wealth came in the knowledge it imparted to him and the desire to follow the path of medicine. He continued his service as an orderly throughout college and received an incredible appreciation for the jobs that nursing assistants perform.
Working closely with people is one of Dr. Schlueter’s greatest enjoyments in this field. He has a great affinity towards the people he comes across on a daily basis as patients, co-workers, and fellow community members.
Dr. Schlueter is a medical director for an area nursing home, which reflects his dedication to geriatric medicine. In addition to geriatrics and family medicine, he also provides general internal medicine.
He attended Moorhead State University for his bachelor’s degree in psychology before enrolling in the medical program at the University of Minnesota. Finishing school, Dr. Schlueter brought forward a great deal of knowledge from his education and training and began his medical career in Chaska, MN.
On a rainy drive through Central Minnesota, Dr. Schlueter and his wife Mary Beth came to the town of Glenwood and later decided to make the move to the community they have called home since 1982. The community holds on to many of the same values he grew up among, and Glenwood’s proximity to a larger metropolitan area made it appealing.
Away from the office, Dr. Schlueter enjoys landscaping, traveling, and enjoying time on Lake Minnewaska. Dr. Schlueter and his wife have two grown daughters, and especially love spending time with their grandchildren.
