Emergency Medicine Physician Jonathan Dompeling, D.O., Joins Stormont Vail Health
Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce that Jonathan Dompeling, D.O., is joining our team to practice as an emergency medicine physician, located at Stormont Vail Hospital.
Dr. Dompeling grew up in the Chicagoland suburbs and attended Loyola University in Chicago, Ill., and Dominican University, River Forest, Ill., where he earned both a Bachelor of Science in biology and a Bachelor of Medical Science. He later attended Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, where he earned his doctor of osteopathic medicine.
“I was always interested in the sciences and as I grew up, I wanted to be more involved in the health sciences,” Dr. Dompeling said. “Becoming an emergency medical provider was a great way to coordinate my interest in health science and my need for personal interaction.”
Dr. Dompeling credits his ability of being both mentally and emotionally flexible as a reason he exceeds as an emergency medicine provider. “In emergency medicine, you can go from helping someone with a sprained ankle to potentially saving someone’s life,” Dr. Dompeling said. “You never know what’s going to come through the door.”
Dr. Dompeling believes in open and honest communication between doctor and patient. “It’s vital doctors and patients get on the same page,” Dr. Dompeling said. “Success in my role is based off of each individual interaction. I want my patients to feel that when we are done talking or when their treatment is finished, that their needs and concerns have been addressed and we were able to effective communicate with each other.”
When not working, Dr. Dompeling enjoys spending time with his wife and their dog. He loves high-energy activities such as backpacking, mountaineering, hiking, running and playing sports. However, he also enjoys slowing down by relaxing on the couch with a good book or playing board games with friends and family.
