MAHASKA COUNTY – Mahaska Health is excited to welcome Arthur Zacharjasz ARNP-BC as a new provider to the allergy and pulmonology team. He is working alongside Melissa Lamb, ARNP in the allergy, immunology and pulmonary department and will see patients in the walk-in clinic. Arthur commented, “I’m excited to care for patients in a variety of ways and believe in holistic and preventative care. Mind, body, and spirit are all important aspects of good health.”
Arthur grew up in Illinois and spent the last 5 years as an intensive care unit nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Arthur graduated with honors from DePaul University with a Master of Science in nursing and went on to earn his Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner license from North Park University School of Nursing.
He chose to become a medical provider to be a part of improving people’s lives. “I like to see people get better, be happier and ultimately do things they’ve wanted to, but couldn’t because of a limiting medical issue,” added Arthur. His approach to providing care is to understand the patient’s goals and share his medical knowledge. Arthur prides himself in being a patient advocate and resource. “I want patients to feel comfortable and be able to ask me anything.”
Arthur said he chose to join Mahaska Health because of its reputation. “The hospital has a wonderful team who provide great medical care and take great pride in their community.” The name Zacharjasz may be a difficult one to pronounce, but it may look familiar to the community. Arthur will be the third of his family to practice at Mahaska Health, joining his brother, Dr. Mark Zacharjasz and sister-in-law Dr. Alyssa Zacharjasz.
“We are so pleased Arthur has joined our team to serve the Mahaska County and surrounding communities,” Dr. Tim Breon, Chief Medical Officer commented. “Arthur joins a care team of expert providers and he is no exception to that high standard. He is already busy helping Mahaska Health patients improve their health.”
In his free time, Arthur enjoys the Frisbee-golf course at Edmondson Park, reading, spending time with family and even some salsa dancing with his wife.
