Mesha Dunn, M.D., is board-certified in family medicine. She is accepting new patients of all ages at Sage Primary Care.

In her approach to family medicine, she practices a version of the Golden Rule: “My philosophy is to treat patients like they are my own family, or to treat them like I would want my family to be treated by a physician.”

As a physician and as a mother, a wife and a daughter, Dr. Dunn sees both sides of the patient/physician relationship. That close, sometimes life-long relationship between family doctor and patient is what made her choose family medicine.

“Patients want to feel like you actually care about them, that they are not just a 20-minute appointment or a number. They want to feel that you genuinely know them, know their situation and that you care about what it is going on,” said Dr. Dunn. “I know what it feels like to have questions and to be scared about a medical diagnosis. Even as a doctor, when stuff is thrown at you, it can be hard to take it all in at times, so imagine how that feels as a patient with no medical background. You just really have to take that time to explain, and re-explain and ensure that you have answered all of their questions.”

Dr. Dunn grew up in Belize City in Central America. She earned her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine in the Netherlands. In 2010, she came to Casper and completed her residency at the University of Wyoming Family Medicine Residency Program.
