Crystal Tuncay, DO
The practice of medicine is more than just prescribing medications.
After Dr. Tuncay graduated from Valparaiso University, she went on to earn her master’s in medical studies from Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Illinois and became a physician assistant. “After several years as a PA, I decided I wanted to become a physician,” Dr. Tuncay said. When she completed her degree, she served a rotating internship at Midwestern University/St. James Hospital and completed a residency in internal medicine and emergency medicine at the same institutions. “I enjoy internal medicine, because I can have a long-term impact on my patient’s health,” she said. “I like to help my patients get well and stay well with a combination of medical care and education."
