SBDC Success Story!

Check Out the New North Star Family Medicine SBDC Success Story!

The SBDC (Small Business Development Center) features North Star Family Medicine. 

There has been no private medical practice in Brainerd (pop. 13,500) for more than 20 years. A private medical practice is owned by a physician and can provide a higher level of health care at a lower cost than a large health care system. Dr. Kristy Lelcu moved to the Brainerd Lakes Area and worked for Essentia Health, but found she missed the connection made with patients. She opened North Star Family Medicine to provide care that focuses on the patients’ needs in this underserved community.
