Shaun Altneu, DO

Education: Philadelphia School of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: St. Vincent’s Medical Center, New York and University of Medicine and Dentistry, New Jersey
Practicing Since: 2012

Q: What prompted you to enter the medical field?
I’ve wanted to be a doctor ever since I was 5 years old and I’ve never wavered from that.

Q: Who has been your greatest influence in life?
My mother, definitely. She’s an amazing woman and always been there for me. She taught me to do unto others as I would have them do unto me. She instilled that value in me…and this profession is my way of using what she taught me to pay it forward.

Q: What do you read or watch for inspiration?
I’m a huge community theater fan. And just getting out into the community, meeting a lot of people – that’s all very inspirational to me.

Q: What does success look like?
That would be seeing a patient progress, doing better than when I first meet them. I’m glad to be a small part in that progress – something that I can say we worked on together.

Q: What is something interesting about you that would surprise people?
I really like Sci-Fi and horror movies. I like the suspense – the scare factor.

Q: What has been your most memorable moment in medicine?
That would be when I have a patient who is so thankful that you’ve done something dramatic in their lives. Overall, that feeling is indescribable but wonderful.


James "Wes" Archer, MD

Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine

Education: Indiana University
Residency: St. Vincent Family Medicine, Indianapolis
Practicing Since: 2004

Q: What prompted you to enter the medical field?
My mother suffered from breast cancer, but remained steadfast in the care of her family and in her faith. That got me interested in the medical field and caring for patients.

Q: From what do you draw inspiration and what does success look like to you?
I read the Bible for daily guidance and various devotional books. At the end of the day, I feel successful when my patients feel their needs are being met and their questions answered in a compassionate way. One of most memorable moments in medicine to this date involved caring for a dear friend who had Leukemia.

Q: What is something patients might be surprised to know about you?
I enjoy photography and I’m learning more about it. I particularly like to shoot nature on trips to South Carolina.

Eric Knabel, DO

Board Certified: American Board of Family Medicine

Education: Oklahoma State University in Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: St. Mary Medical Center in Evansville, IN
Practicing Since: 1999

Q: What prompted you to enter the medical field?
I thought it would be nice to make a living by helping people.

Q: Who has been the greatest influence in your life?
I would have to say my wife. She has made me the man I am today. Before I met her, I was a different person.

Q: What do you read or listen to for inspiration?
I am an avid reader. I enjoy everything from Sci-Fi to the Dali Lama. My tastes are eclectic.

Q: What does success look like to you?
It’s being able to look myself in the mirror at the end of the day. I practice medicine for the right reasons – not for profit and not to improve anyone’s bottom line.

Q: What would patients be surprised to learn about you?
I did stand-up comedy in my third year of residency. I almost toured. What kind of comedy? I just point out the absurdities in life.

Q: What has been your most memorable medical moment?
There are too many…holding a person’s hand as they draw their last breath or guiding a person into the world and hearing that first cry – emotions that you can’t convey in words.


Laura Knudson, MD

Board certified from the American Academy of Family Physicians

Medical/Graduate School: University of Minnesota
Residency: University of Utah
Began practicing: 2010

Q: What prompted you to enter the medical field?
I like people. I like problem solving. I like science. Those three are found in spades in medicine.

Q: Who or what has been your greatest influence in life?
It would be a cross between my parents and the movie, “Defending Your Life.” It’s a film all about the afterlife. People continue to be reincarnated until they master their fears. In life, I think you learn to lean into your fear and move through it.

Q: What do you read or listen to for inspiration?
Well, I have two small children, so being able to sleep is inspiration. But I really like any kind of music, too. I like guitar, singing and dancing, particularly folk or bluegrass.

Q: What does success look like to you?
On a professional level, it’s time to see my patients and having a good time with them. In evenings it’s kids in bed, dinner cleaned up, time with my spouse, time for a run and time to read something other than medical materials.
