Andrea K. Herrera, MD
Dr. Herrera grew up in Hesston, KS, and as a student at McPherson College discovered how a career in medicine could satisfy her desire to help people. She went on to medical school at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City and Wichita, then residency at the University of Texas Health Center at Tyler. After completing residency, Dr. Herrera began practicing at Russell Regional Hospital in Russell, KS. Three years later, in 2011, she and her family moved to McPherson to be closer to her husband’s work.
Since stating her career in medicine, Dr. Herrera has seen patients struggling to afford their healthcare. She has opened Great Plains Family Medicine to bring quality, affordable healthcare to McPherson. Her passions are delivering this care to adults and children, saving people money, and being more flexible to spend time with her husband and three children. When she‘s not darting between her kids’ activities, Dr. Herrera also enjoys reading and her morning walks.
