Rene Alonzo, MD

Hello!  My name is Rene Alonzo.  I was born in Orange, California but Midwestern raised in South Bend, Indiana, my 2 younger brothers and parents still living in South Bend.  I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Notre Dame (GO IRISH!) majoring in Pre-Med. After completing my B.S. I worked as an office assistant, Medical Interpreter, and Community Health Worker in Diabetes education, before deciding to attend Ross University School of Medicine on the island of Dominica. While in Dominica I had the opportunity to meet my wonderful fiancée, Madeline.  My clinical clerkships were for the most part completed in Chicago at Saint Anthony’s Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital.

For me, FWMEP was an easy top choice.  It is an unopposed, dually accredited program, that would allow me to maximize my opportunities to best serve my community and provide full-spectrum care.  But best of all, Fort Wayne has a wonderful group of residents, faculty, and staff that right away made me feel at home. Which is why I am honored to be part of the team.  My particular interests include rural medicine and addiction medicine.

Outside of medicine I enjoy working out at the gym, hiking, camping, cooking, grilling, sitting by a nice bonfire on fall nights, and watching college football.  With my fiancée, Madeline, we have a playful rivalry as to who is the better cook at home. Together we both enjoy touring our community and getting to know local bakeries, restaurants, and activities.

Brian Davault, MD

Hello! My name is Brian and I am from the south side of Indianapolis. I went to Indiana University for college, where I majored in neuroscience and minored in Spanish and Italian. I then went to Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, where I developed a passion for family medicine. I enjoy building relationships with patients and feel that family medicine provides an excellent way for me to work alongside my patients.

I wanted a residency program that would equip me to practice full-spectrum family medicine in a rural setting. Fort Wayne Medical Education Program fit that perfectly and had wonderful and welcoming residents and staff. On top of that, I get to stay in my home state of Indiana!

Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Brittany, and our two dogs. I also enjoy playing strategy board games, gardening, cooking (mainly by making things from scratch), playing tennis (albeit very poorly), hiking, playing piano, and anything related to Star Wars.

Kyle Davidson, DO

Hello! My name is Kyle Davidson and I’m a Fort Wayne native. I grew up on the northwest side of town and graduated from Carroll High School in 2010, received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2014, and achieved my Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from Marian University in 2018. I chose Fort Wayne as my place of residency because of the strength of the program. I was looking for a program that could provide the aspects of training I wanted while also challenging me to be the best physician I can be. FWMEP was the perfect fit.

In college I was involved in research, physics club, and a sketch comedy group called Friday Night Live of which I was the Director for two years. At Marian University I started a comedy show for the medical students called Second Year Show, which aims to be a laughter filled celebration for entering clinical rotations.

I wouldn’t be anything without my wife Cari and my son Cash. Cari and I met in high school show choir (please do not ask me to sing, or especially, dance) and our son was born in August of 2017. She is a Realtor in town, and he is busy being the cutest baby you’ll ever meet (I’m quite biased). I love spending time with them and our two dogs, Millie and Ralph.

I enjoy being up at the lake house, playing board games, keeping up with the latest Netflix show, and spending time with family and friends. I am a very creative person, and I have a passion for bringing joy to the lives of others. I am proud to be serving the people of Fort Wayne.

Drake Everson, DO

Hello!  My name is Drake Everson, and I am from Fort Wayne.  I spent my first two years of undergraduate education at Parkland College in Champaign, Illinois before graduating from Indiana University with a degree in chemistry.  After my time at IU, I worked for a year in the healthcare field as a technician, which was a fantastic experience that solidified my desire to pursue a career in medicine.  I then attended Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine where I was able to train here in Fort Wayne during my third and fourth year.

I chose Fort Wayne Medical Education Program for a variety of reasons.  There are many opportunities for learning and growth with the program being unopposed.  The residency provides flexibility in learning different procedures and techniques that allow physicians to treat a wide variety of patients.  The most important thing that stood out to me, however, was the people. The residents, faculty, and staff at FWMEP are all extremely kind and helpful.  I could tell that they deeply care about their patients along with developing brilliant, well-rounded physicians. I am also extremely excited to work and take care of patients in the great city of Fort Wayne!

Outside of medicine, I love spending time with family and friends.  I enjoy exercising at the YMCA, playing tennis and basketball, and rooting for the Indiana Hoosiers!  I also enjoy watching Game of Thrones and The Office as much as possible!

Danielle Kemp, MD

Hi! My name is Danielle Kemp. I was born on the beautiful island of Jamaica and moved to Brooklyn, New York at the age of 12. The city soon became home for me and I later earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology from Brooklyn College, a city school only a short bus ride away. From there, I went on to attend Tulane University School of Medicine in the uniquely colorful city of New Orleans, Louisiana. Attracted by the prospect of practicing full-spectrum Family Medicine, the FWMEP stood out as an opportunity to learn just that. I look forward to spending the next few years with the incredible staff, faculty, and residents at FWMEP!

Between graduating from undergraduate and beginning medical school at Tulane University, I joined the US Army Reserves and met and married my amazing husband. We now have a wonderful, beautiful daughter together and are excited to be in Fort Wayne, close to family and friends.

Outside of medicine, my interests include knitting, crochet, and most recently, photography. But perhaps most of all, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. We’re both very excited to start this new chapter in Fort Wayne, Indiana!

Emily Krach, DO

Hello! I am a lifelong Hoosier with an immense level of state pride! I was born in Indianapolis and raised in Fort Wayne. At Saint Mary’s College, I majored in Biology with a Cellular/Molecular concentration and minored in Chemistry and Math. Upon graduating from college, I moved to Indianapolis to study medicine at Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine. While at Marian, I started my school’s chapter of the Catholic Medical Association and have been an enthusiastic member ever since! During my fourth year of medical school, I completed training at the Pope Paul VI Institute in Omaha, NE to become a Creighton Model NaProTechnology Medical Consultant.

There are many reasons why I chose to come to FWMEP! Two of my mentors graduated from this program, and I aspire to become an excellent physician like them. My audition rotation at Fort Wayne allowed me to meet everyone and see that the program would be a great fit. Some of my interests in medicine include obstetrics, medical ethics, pediatrics, natural family planning, infectious disease, and mental health, and I know that I will be able to develop proficiency in my interests while training here. After residency, I plan on joining an established private practice.

In my free time, I take pleasure in spending time outdoors hiking, canoeing, bird watching, and slalom waterskiing. Traveling, spending time with friends and family, telling my grandpa’s jokes, and reading for my book clubs are other enjoyments of mine. I am a classic rock enthusiast, and I try to attend as many concerts as possible, especially since classic rockers are going extinct. Some of my favorite concerts I’ve gone to include, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, and the Eagles. Rock on!

Brian LaMar, MD

Hello, my name is Brian LaMar and I am excited to be coming to Fort Wayne! I was born in California and grew up mainly in Missouri. I then moved to Nevada where I received my Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science and Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno. I attended Ross University for medical school where I completed my first 2 years on the island of Dominica and then completed my clinical training in Brooklyn, NY.  

I chose FWMEP because I immediately felt welcomed by all of the residents and faculty during my first visit. That feeling, paired with the opportunity to train in a full-spectrum family medicine program with a lot of exposure to obstetrics and procedures really sold me on the program and I am excited to be joining FWMEP!

Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, playing tennis, and spending time with my dog.

Alexandra Madigan, MD

Hi, my name is Allie Madigan and I’m so excited to be working in Fort Wayne. I’m a Midwest native at heart, hailing from Green Bay, Wisconsin. After high school I completed my undergraduate degrees at The University at Buffalo: a BS in Biomedical Sciences and a BA in Classics with an emphasis in Mediterranean Archaeology.

My time spent in college working as an EMT and shadowing other physicians helped me find my true calling in medicine and led me to medical school at St. George’s University. While at St. George’s I was able to experience an amazing culture and group of people on the island of Grenada. From there I spent two years doing clinical rotations at various hospitals in Brooklyn, NY.

I was drawn to Fort Wayne due to both the amazing program and a wonderful midwestern community that reminded me of home. Fort Wayne blew me away from the beginning with the dedication of the program’s staff and faculty to providing so many academic opportunities while fostering such a fantastic learning environment. Some of my interests in family medicine include: Geriatrics, Emergency Medicine, Global Health, Women’s Health and Preventative Medicine.

In my free time I enjoy singing, playing guitar, dancing and yoga. I’m also an avid reader and love curling up with a good novel and doing a bit of my own writing on the side.

Rebecca Mason, MD

Hello hello! I’m Becki Mason and I’m so excited to be joining FMWEP! I was born and raised in Fishers, Indiana by two very enthusiastic Hoosiers. I followed in their footsteps and attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana where I majored in biology and minored in Spanish, chemistry, and psychology. While at IU, I participated in a couple of medical trips abroad to Ghana and Honduras – solidifying my desire to work in medicine. I then attended the IU School of Medicine and have spent all four years of my medical school career here in Fort Wayne!

After doing many rotations here in Fort Wayne, I knew that the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program was where I wanted to train. The unopposed nature of the program and broad learning opportunities coupled with the wonderful residents and supportive faculty made the decision easy for me. In addition, the medical community in this area is incredible and the amount of services and support provided to patients is outstanding. It’s a system I’m very honored to get to learn from! I have special interest in adolescent health, global and refugee health, and working in underserved areas.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching movies (thank you to the creator of MoviePass!), traveling domestically and abroad, and spending time with friends! I’m lucky enough to have friends living all over the world and try to visit at least one of them every year. I also love exploring new things to do in and around town! While I don’t currently have any human children, I am the proud mother of 4 furry children – 2 dogs and 2 cats – and we spend a lot of time out at the dog park!

Clem Wegman, MD

Hi! My name is Clem Wegman, but I go by John (my middle name) just to confuse everyone. I am a Midwesterner through and through, born in Cincinnati. I attended the Ohio State University for my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science. During my time there, I was able to explore my interests in both academic research and clinical medicine. I was greatly drawn to the personal connections that clinical work entailed and decided to remain at Ohio State for my medical education.

My road to family medicine was certainly not a direct path, as I had interests in psychiatry, internal medicine, and even surgery during medical school. While the factors that drew me to family medicine are too numerous to list, its comprehensive and compassionate care delivered in a personalized manner is what sold me the most. I was ecstatic to discover Ft. Wayne, as an unopposed community program in the Midwest that embodies these ideals. The flexibility of training options, from practice management education to advanced obstetrical skills, was another huge plus to me. Finally, I felt connected with both the residents and faculty during my interview day and second look. Ft. Wayne just really felt like home, and I am so excited to be joining the program!

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, fishing, reading, and beer brewing, as well as spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to exploring all the recreational opportunities that Ft. Wayne has to offer.
