CVH Welcomes Dr. Brune to Ironwood Primary Care

CVH Welcomes Dr. Brune to Ironwood Primary Care

A slight change of scenery is just another step in the professional life of Dr. Mark Brune as he makes his much anticipated arrival at Carson Valley Health.

A resident of Carson Valley since 1994, Dr. Brune attended medical school and residency at the University of Nevada, Reno and has seen incredible change in the Minden/Gardnerville area while serving the community in a variety of emergency and medical roles.

“I was the Medical Director for East Fork Fire in the 1990’s, back when the location of my current office was alfalfa fields,” Dr. Brune said. “It’s been a constant evolution in this valley since then, and my arrival at Carson Valley Health is just a continuum of change”.

Originally a Carson Fire paramedic living in Sparks, Dr. Brune chose to settle down in the Carson Valley with his wife and kids because of the rural charm and quality of life the community offers.

“Not only did I involve myself in the medical community, but also in the community as a whole,” he said. “I was active as President for the Carson Douglas Medical Society and am proud of the work I’ve done to steer the growth of medical services in the valley.”

As a primary care doctor and Internal Medicine specialist, Dr. Brune looks for more than chronic diseases, he looks at the body as a whole and knows the specialists to refer patients to.

“Especially as we get older, a primary care doctor is very important,” he said. “A lot of people may not realize what’s going on with their body until they get professional advice.”

Doctor Brune is currently accepting patients, and welcomes past patients to join him at Carson Valley Health. For appointments or information, call Carson Valley Health at (775) 782-1610 or visit
