Four Fort Wayne Medical Education Program Graduates Join Lutheran Health Physicians

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Aug. 11, 2020) – Four Family Medicine physicians from the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program (FWMEP) have joined Lutheran Health Physicians and are now seeing patients. In Fort Wayne, Dr. Maertin and Dr. Tatara are located at 6511 E. State Blvd; Dr. Wieging is practicing at the 3534 Brooklyn Ave. clinic. Dr. Mullen is located at 605 N. Walnut Street in North Manchester.

The three-year family medicine residency with FWMEP provides physicians the opportunity to expand their training as they round at various local healthcare facilities. In turn, close connections are established with patients, nurses and other providers during the course of their residency.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Maertin, Dr. Tatara, Dr. Weiging and Dr. Mullen to Lutheran Health Physicians,” said Dan Konow, CEO. “Health begins with prevention and a strong relationship with a primary care provider is key. We are pleased to add these outstanding physicians  to our team and expand our services to the community. 

For Dr. Tatara, the relationship to Fort Wayne and Lutheran Health Network extends beyond her training at FWMEP. The Fort Wayne native completed dual bachelor’s degrees in biology and Spanish at Butler University before earning her medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pennsylvania. Years of volunteerism have included leading mentoring programs for elementary and middle school students during college and medical school, as well as serving at free clinics in Fort Wayne, Indianapolis and Guatemala.

A Michigan native, Dr. Maertin earned his undergraduate degree in biology at the University of Toledo before completing his medical degree at West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg. With a strong passion for the community, he has led many local and international mission trips, including trips to Kenya and the Philippines. 

Dr. Wieging joined FWMEP from neighboring Delphos, Ohio, having earned a bachelor’s degree in premedical studies and classic Greek from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend before completing his medical degree at St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. He is a member of the American Association for Primary Care Endoscopy and the Indiana Association of Family Physicians. 

Originally from San Diego, Dr. Mullen completed an undergraduate degree in biology, with an emphasis on cell and molecular biology, from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. She later earned her medical degree from Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Indianapolis. She is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, the American Academy of Physicians, the Indiana Academy of Family Physicians and the Indiana Osteopathic Association.
