“I wanted to be a doctor ever since the 9th grade,” says Dr. Schaller. “I took a day tour of a medical school, and the internist was the smartest doctor in the room – he always looked at a complete picture of the patient, and he could talk with any specialist and speak their language. That’s what I do.”

“A lot of my work involves managing diabetes, high cholesterol and other things associated with the natural aging process,” he explains. “Sometimes they happen at the same time, so having a physician who can coordinate care – knowing your preferences, tendencies, past history and family history – improves your care.”

Dr. Schaller and his wife, Blythe, a former social worker, live on an 11-acre property just west of Wausau. He stays active running, swimming, cycling and skiing. He’s skied the Birkebeiner and has competed in the Wausau Triathlon every year for over 20 years.

Dr. Schaller completed medical school at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, in Madison. He completed an internship and a residency, both in internal medicine, at Maricopa Integrated Health System – Maricopa Medical Center, in Phoenix, Arizona. He is board-certified in internal medicine.
