Dr. Ashish Risal recently joined Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Medical Group in West Plains. Dr. Risal is a Board Certified Pediatrician and his pediatric practice is located in the Highland Park Medical Complex next to OMC Urgent Care.

Dr. Risal earned his medical degree from Nepal Medical College of Kathmandu University in Kathmandu, Nepal. He completed his residency in Pediatrics at the Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center of Weill Cornell Medical College in Bronx, New York.

Prior to coming to OMC, Dr. Risal was a fellow in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Children’s Mercy Hospital of University of Missouri in Kansas City, Missouri.

Dr. Risal loves children. “I knew I wanted to work with children by my first year of medical school,” he said. “I have bought a home in West Plains and am looking forward to doing some remodeling.” In Dr. Risal’s free time, he enjoys Netflix, hiking, and drinking coffee on his porch.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Risal to the OMC medical staff to begin providing full-time pediatric care at OMC,” said OMC President and CEO Thomas Keller.
