Family Physician Robert Westin, M.D., has practiced at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Crosby Clinic since 1995. He has special interests in diabetes, pediatrics, and sports medicine. A Board Certified Family Practitioner, Dr. Westin is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He received his undergraduate degree from Bethel College in St. Paul, Minn., did the Rural Physician Associate Program in Cambridge, Minn., and graduated with his Medical Degree from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine-Duluth and Minneapolis. He completed a residency with the Duluth Family Practice Program in Duluth, Minn., before beginning practice in Crosby. Another work-related interest throughout his career has been system and process improvement and how communication, collegiality, and the work environment can impact patient care and medical staff’s job satisfaction and wellness. This has led him to a part-time administrative role as CRMC’s Chief Medical Officer.

“The most enjoyable aspect of my primary care practice over the years has been the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with my patients. Knowing who they are beyond a single acute issue and being able to put the context of their families, friends, and social connections together allows us to better help with their chronic and preventive medical needs.”

Dr. Westin and his wife, Sharri, live in Ironton, with their two sons and three daughters. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, hunting, and playing the piano at home and for church, which he is actively involved in. He is also a member of the Christian Medical and Dental Association.
