Meet Dr. Angela Voight
Dr. Voight’s approach:“My goal is to help people return to the activities they love as quickly and safely as possible. I want patients to feel like they are well cared for, that their concerns are heard, and that we work together to find the best treatment plan.”
Dr. Voight’s education: Dr. Voight received her undergraduate degree from Bethel University in Arden Hills, Minnesota and University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
