About Us

The physicians and staff of Northland Neurology have been providing high quality care to patients in Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin for more than 20 years. Dr. David McKee started the practice in 1992. Dr. Ed Crisostomo joined in 1995. Both physicians are board certified in neurology and have subspecialty fellowship training and certification.

This practice has provided virtually all of the neurology inpatient and outpatient services supplied at St. Luke's for the past 2 decades and expects to continue this relationship into the future. In addition, several outreach clinics are maintained, allowing for optimal convenience for patients and their referring physicians. Currently, we offer outreach services at the following locations:

• Grand Itasca Clinic, Grand Rapids
• Virginia Regional Medical Center, Virginia
• Hibbing Family Medical Clinic, Hibbing

• Mesaba Clinic, Hibbing
• Raiter Clinic, Cloquet

Northland Neurology has supported emergency department services in Duluth and outlying cities nonstop since 1992. During that time, thousands of  consultations have been given.
