Doug Nunamaker, M.D.
I was born in Joplin, Missouri and raised mostly in Manhattan, Kansas. I graduated from Manhattan High School and attended Pittsburg State University. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in biology with minors in chemistry and physics. I graduated from KU School of Medicine, and completed residency at Wesley Family Medicine in Wichita where I met my wife with whom I have two wonderful sons, Sebastian and Sean. After residency, I practiced as a hospitalist at Mid-Kansas Inpatient Physicians before joining Atlas MD where my true passion for comprehensive, life-long family medicine awaits.
I am board certified in Family Medicine and am a member of the American Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians, Society of Hospital Medicine, Kansas Association of Family Physicians and the Medical Society of Sedgwick County. I currently hold an Associate Faculty position with the KU School of Medicine – Wichita.
I’ve known that I wanted to be a family doctor for quite some time because my father is a hospital administrator and I’ve been around hospitals all my life. I realized rather quickly that one of the problems with practicing medicine is that the long arm of insurance companies is always looming overhead. At Atlas MD, we’re able to cut ties with insurance companies and provide medical care as we were trained. It’s the kind of family medicine clinic that I always wanted to be a part of but just wasn’t an option before Atlas.
