Lakeland Health welcomes three new doctors

Three doctors have recently joined Lakeland Health--a foot and ankle specialist, a new family physician, and a rheumatologist.

James Maskill, DPM, is seeing patients at Community Bone & Joint, located within the Health Park Medical Suites, 3950 Hollywood Road, Suite 210, in St. Joseph.

Dr. Maskill earned his medical degree from the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University in Chicago, where he graduated summa cum laude. He completed his Foot and Ankle Residency with Kaiser Permanente in the San Francisco Bay Area. He completed fellowship training with the New England Foot and Ankle Specialists in Portland, Maine, where he specialized in complex hindfoot and forefoot reconstruction, total ankle replacements, and foot and ankle trauma.

Dr. Maskill is a member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and has been published in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Adam Mitchell, DO, is seeing patients at Lakeland Family Medicine, Niles, located at 4 Longmeadow Village Drive.  An Alabama native, he earned his medical degree from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, W.V.

His medical interests include sports medicine and well visits, and he enjoys the variety of patients he sees in Family Medicine practice. He is passionate about community involvement, and hopes to encourage healthy lifestyles outside of the office.

“I chose family medicine as a career because you’re able to build relationships with your patients, and when you have those relationships, you’re able to take better care of them,” says Dr. Mitchell. “I try to provide care to my patients like I would provide to my own family, and that leads to more trust and a better exchange of information for better health outcomes.”

Nina Ramessar, MD, Rheumatologist, is seeing patients alongside Amrit Anand, MD, at Lakeland Rheumatology, located within the Health Park Medical Suites. Dr. Ramessar earned her medical degree from the University of the West Indies, located in St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. She is a member of the American College of Rheumatology and has been published in several peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. Ramessar enjoys participating in clinical research and treating patients with lupus. Prior to joining Lakeland, Dr. Ramessar completed a Rheumatology Fellowship at SUNY (State University New York) Downstate Medical Center located in central Brooklyn, where she also finished her Internal Medicine residency. During her fellowship, Dr. Ramessar served as Rheumatology Chief Fellow.
