  • Fracture care—operative and non-operative.

Dr. Binsfeld chose to practice in the field of orthopedics because he found it to be energizing. He believes that working with patients, exploring operative and nonoperative treatment options, and arriving at the best solution is the most rewarding part of his career.

Dr. Binsfeld obtained his medical degree from Kansas City College of Medicine and Biosciences in Missouri. His internship and residency were completed at Genesys Regional Medical Center with Michigan State University in Grand Blanc. While he was in residency, he was the chief resident in his class. Dr. Binsfeld worked previously at Mid Michigan Bone and Joint Center, with offices in Alma, Mt. Pleasant and Clare.

Outside of the practice of medicine, Dr. Binsfeld enjoys outdoor activities such as mountain biking and kayaking.

Dr. Binsfeld looks forward to meeting new patients and welcomes the opportunity to help patients achieve their goals.


Nate will treat patients in the clinic and provide care for acute and chronic orthopedic conditions including osteoarthritis, fractures, dislocations, sprains and strains. Nate will work closely with Dr. Binsfeld to determine if further treatment such as rehabilitation or surgery is needed.

“I really try to listen to patients first and foremost, explains Nate. “I then use a detailed physical exam and diagnostic testing to help formulate a diagnosis. I go over all treatment options with my patients and formulate a plan with them. I try to let them be the driver and I am there to guide them/provide information, experiences and outcomes of patients I’ve seen in the past. I enjoy getting to know my patients and building a relationship/rapport with them to gain their trust in order for me to help them most effectively. At the end of the day I will always do what is right for the patient.”

Nate completed his education at the University of Iowa for undergraduate degree from 2007-2011. He then went on to graduate from the University of Des Moines for Masters of Physician Assistant Studies in 2017.

During his continued education, Nate gained extensive experience working in Radiology as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist for 5 years. He most recently was employed as a Physician Assistant in Orthopedics in Des Moines, Iowa for the past 1.5 years prior to joining the clinic in Lancaster. He has a combined total healthcare experience of 10 years.

“After living in larger cities, my wife and I decided we wanted to return to small town living,” Nate explains. “I hope that in Lancaster I will be able to apply my formally acquired knowledge to reach and help as many patients as I can. My hobbies and interests include family, golf, and Hawkeyes sports (sorry Badger fans!).”
