Essentia Health-45th Street Clinic in Fargo welcomes Dennis Chakua


The Essentia Health-45th Street Clinic is proud to welcome back former Fargo resident Dennis Chakua, an advanced practice registered nurse and certified nurse practitioner specializing in walk-in care.

“I have always been passionate about health care,” said Chakua. “During years of working as a nurse, I witnessed the effects of health disparity in our community. I was given an opportunity to pursue further studies that would prepare me for a primary care role. I hope to use the knowledge I gained over the past few years to make a difference in the communities we serve.”

Chakua received his medical education from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

“I enjoy family practice, emergency medicine and urgent care,” said Chakua. “I am dedicated to ensuring you and your family receive the best possible health care available so that you can focus on living your life to the fullest.”
