Dustin Blackwell, DO, wanted to be a physician ever since he was a child.
“My desire to be a physician stems from an aspiration to not only
treat patients and make them well, but to have ability to teach patients
about their health,” he said. During his rotation in medical school,
Dr. Blackwell was surprised to find that he liked the specialty of Obstetrics
and Gynecology. “I enjoyed the element of surgical care and the
management of the patient, the joy of bringing new life into the world,
and the variety of practice that accompanied OB/GYN.” Wanting to
be a part of a rural, close knit community, Dr. Blackwell decided to practice
at Good Samaritan. This, in addition to the state-of-the-art hospital,
and friendly and welcoming staff, made the choice of practicing at Good
Samaritan an easy one. Dr. Blackwell and his wife, Courtney, reside in
Vincennes with their two children, Adalyn (Addie) and Gavin. In his free
time, he enjoys being with his family and getting outdoors to run, bike,
swim, hike and golf.
