Andrew Frost, DO, has taken a fairly colorful path to the position of medicine that he holds today. Before entering college, he was an accomplished metal fabricator, mechanic and volunteer paramedic. He attended Loras College in Dubuque Iowa for his undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry . He is a 1997 graduate of the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines and completed his Family Practice residency at Trinity Health in Davenport Iowa.
Dr. Frost holds a position as an affiliate professor at Des Moines University and for the past 17 years has trained third and fourth year medical students.
