>> Sleep Medicine and Studies

Do you feel tired and run down on many days? Why? Is it due to anemia, joint pain, achy muscles, hypothyroidism or too many things on your mind? Perhaps it is due to restless legs, loud snoring accompanied by frequent nighttime awakenings, or you just cannot fall asleep or stay asleep on most nights. The list for possible causes of fatigue or daytime sleepiness is endless, but oftentimes, fatigue or sleepiness (they do not always mean the same thing) is due to a poor quality of sleep or not enough sleep.

Sleep is a relatively new field in medicine. We are able to share with you the latest strategies, new treatment plans and new theories pertaining to sleep with the goal of helping the patients here in the Jackson County area. Black River Memorial Hospital has a certified sleep lab and we can offer you testing locally if an overnight study is needed. If you have problems with your sleep, we can help.

>> Nursing Home

The doctors at Krohn Clinic take pride in providing care for our patients throughout all stages of their lives. As family physicians, we appreciate the amazing circle of life. We enjoy the opportunity of helping new parents welcome their first child into their lives. We also enjoy caring for family members at the other end of the life cycle. We provide medical services to our patients that are no longer able to live independently. Our physicians make rounds at both of the long term care facilities in Black River Falls. By caring for your family members in the facility that is now their “home,” your loved ones do not need to go through the effort of traveling to and from their doctor’s office. We work closely with the nursing staff of each facility to ensure that we are aware of all the complex issues facing these individuals at a time when they are most vulnerable.

>> Spanish Services

We strive to provide full spectrum care, including prenatal, neonatal, pediatric, adult medicine and urgent care in a culturally sensitive, Spanish-speaking environment for our Latino patients. In this manner, a patient’s concerns and needs can be more fully explored, and subsequently met. Krohn Clinic has several providers who are functionally fluent in Spanish.

Ofrecemos cuidado para todas las edades, incluyendo recien nacidos, pediatría, obstetricia, adultos, y geriatría. Para nuestros pacientes que se hablan español, preferimos hablar en español para que obtengamos una historia precisa. Krohn Clinic tiene varios doctores que se hablan español. Queremos ayudarles en cualquiera necesidad que tengan Uds. en el campo de medicina.

>> Podiatry

Your feet are a complex system of bones, joints, ligaments, nerves and muscles that work together to help you do the things you want to do. Foot pain is not normal. If your feet and/or legs are keeping you from your daily activities or other things you enjoy, it is time to have them checked out. No referrals are needed.

  • Comprehensive work-up of foot and lower extremity problems
  • Nail and callus care
  • Diabetic foot care
  • Arthritis, tendinitis and other overuse problems with the foot and ankle
  • Foot and ankle injuries
  • Bunions and hammertoes
  • Heel pain
  • Cysts and other soft tissue tumors
  • Surgery of the foot (hospital and office based)
  • Problems associated with vascular disease and nerves
  • Biomechanical exams

>> Urgent Care/Acute Care

Not feeling well, but can’t see your regular primary care provider? Krohn Clinic Urgent Care provides high-quality, convenient, same-day service to patients requiring treatment for illness or injuries that require immediate care, but are not serious enough to warrant emergency room evaluation. Please see our Urgent Care page to learn more.

>> Sports Medicine

Our Black River Sports Medicine Team is a group of physicians, physical therapists, and certified athletic trainers providing their services for Sports Medicine coverage to local high school athletes. The focus of the program has been on those sports with high injury rates such as football, wrestling and hockey. Since its inception in 1999, thousands of students and their families have benefited from the program.

Services provided include: medical staff game coverage, supplies, and a lump and bump screening clinic at the Black River Memorial Hospital Rehab Department for student athletes injured at practice. Concussion prevention, testing and treatment are stressed.

>> Laser Aesthetics and Cosmetic Services

At Krohn Clinic, we offer many cosmetic services. We offer free consultations, where we can discuss acne treatment, Botox, chemical peels, filler injections (Restylane ®), laser hair reduction, microdermabrasion and skin rejuvenation with photo facial intense pulsed light therapy (IPL).

>> Behavioral Health

Krohn Clinic is staffed with a Board Certified psychiatrist and two certified counselors who are specially trained to provide care for a variety of mental health needs. Most behavioral health problems are handled by your primary care provider. On those occasions when further evaluation or counseling is needed, our team will work together to get you comprehensive care at the clinic.

Services include consultation, diagnostic assessment, psychiatric and psychological evaluation, individual and family therapy along with medication therapy. Our clinic also provides resources and referrals within the county and beyond, depending on your or your family's individual mental health needs (resources such as inpatient treatment, crisis intervention, case management, along with educational and employability services.)
