Physician Bio: Dr. David R. Stout, M.D.
“I grew up in Seymour and never realized the advantages of living in a small town until I moved away. I was blessed to be surrounded by wonderful role models here in Seymour . My parents, my family doctor, my church and many people throughout my community helped to foster my passion for medicine and to fulfill my goal of becoming a physician and make a difference in people’s lives. I thank God daily for giving me the opportunity to serve others and touch lives through my work."
