Provider Bio down arrow

​​​Dr. Nathaniel Stepp is happy to be practicing medicine in western Wisconsin for a lot of reasons. He was born in the state, attended UW Eau Claire and married a Chippewa Falls native. One of the newest providers at the Marshfield Clinic Lake Hallie Center Family Medicine Department, Dr. Stepp is thrilled to be closer to family after spending the past seven years as a physician in the United States Navy.

Dr. Stepp, who earned his medical degree from Des Moines University – College of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences, started seeing patients at the Lake Hallie Center in July 2014. He is excited to build a primary care practice in the Chippewa Valley.​​​

“I love family medicine because of the diversity of individuals and families I care for in this field,” he explains. “I hope to treat all ages, or as they say, ‘cradle to cane’.” In addition to providing full primary care services, Dr. Stepp has special training in osteopathic manual medicine and acupuncture – tools he can effectively use to treat acute and chronic medical conditions. “I treat people respectfully and honestly,” he says. “I treat the cause as well as the symptom.”​​​

Dr. Stepp’s life away from Marshfield Clinic is busy. He and his wife Kari are raising three sons – Elijah, Xavier and Gabriel. Dr. Stepp is an avid health and fitness enthusiast who enjoys running and weight lifting. You also might see him around town on his motorcycle. His wife teaches volleyball and the civic-minded couple is eager to volunteer at area events and get re-acclimated with Wisconsin’s four seasons, something they have missed in their time away from western Wisconsin.​​​
