Ben Feinzimer, DO

Dr. Ben Feinzimer, DO, MS

Medical Director

I attended medical school at Midwestern University’s - Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine where, as part of the curriculum, students receive specialized training in musculoskeletal assessment and manipulation. I then completed residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois in Chicago and became the Education Chief and was awarded Educator of the Year in 2011.

I was fortunate enough to obtain an additional advanced degree from Illinois Institute of Technology’s Institute of Psychology and hold my Master’s in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. My thesis on leadership behavior and its effect on employee retention was conducted in the hospital setting and has impacted my career in medicine.

Full Professional Bio

Dr. Feinzimer began his emergency medicine career as a firefighter / EMT. He attended medical school at Midwestern University’s - Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine where, as part of the curriculum, students receive specialized training in musculoskeletal assessment and manipulation. Ben then completed residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He became the Education Chief and was awarded Educator of the Year in 2011.

Dr. Feinzimer was fortunate enough to obtain an additional advanced degree from Illinois Institute of Technology’s Institute of Psychology and holds his Master’s in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. His thesis on leadership behavior and its effect on employee retention was conducted in the hospital setting and has impacted his career in medicine.

With skills developed from the above disciplines Ben spent several years as the Vice Chairman to the Emergency Department at Froedtert South and became the Associate Director of that specialty at St Catherine’s Medical Center in Pleasant Prairie. During his tenure he developed and implemented an education curriculum for new emergency medicine nurses.

Ben’s proudest accomplishment though is as the Kenosha County EMS and Tactical EMS Medical Director. For the past five years Dr. Feinzimer has married his two greatest passions; teaching and prehospital medicine. In conjunction with the support of hospital administration Ben created a physician response vehicle program where he responds to 911 calls in a specialized SUV and is able to provide real-time feedback to the paramedics and emts as they care for their community.

Dr. Feinzimer has published many articles and lectured at the local, regional, and State level on various topics of field-based emergency medical care. He has also conducted studies in organizational leadership and employee behavior. Ben considers himself exceedingly fortunate to have had the many opportunities in higher education and post-graduate training. His experiences have created a unique niche in emergency medicine and workplace dynamics. Dr. Feinzimer anticipates that distinction will promote a safer, more efficient, and more productive setting for the workforce of Southeast Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.
