Timothy Dirks, MD

Dr. Tim Dirks is a cardiologist with Minneapolis Heart Institute who sees patients in Aitkin, Baxter and Crosby.

Specialty areas of practice:  Echocardiography, nuclear medicine and preventative cardiology

Personal philosophy/approach to medical care:  My fundamental interest in medicine has not changed since I started medical school.  I have always enjoyed developing relationships with patients and working thoughtfully with them to meet their medical needs.  Being a cardiologist in a nationally recognized group such as Minneapolis Heart Institute allows me to provide greater opportunity to meet patient needs.
