Nowell, Dr. Andrew



Andrew Nowell, MD, FACS, is a physician at PCI Surgical Specialists and is a practicing physician at the Community Cancer Center.

He graduated from medical school at the University of Wisconsin, School of Medicine and Public Health, and completed his residency in General Surgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Nowell is board certified by the American Board of Surgery.

When asked what his provider philosophy is , he said “As a physician, I feel my role is to partner with the patient to help them through the process of their medical care.” Dr. Nowell joined Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa in 2008. He chose PCI because its patients “benefit from high-quality multispecialty care. That’s important when taking care of complex conditions, or when something unexpected happens. I think it’s really beneficial to have good relationships with fellow providers who you can count on to help with your patients as needed.”

In his free time Dr. Nowell enjoys spending time with family, personal fitness and outdoor recreation including mountain biking, hiking and climbing. He also enjoys watching Green Bay Packers football and Northwestern University Athletics.

Dr. Nowell and all PCI Surgical Specialists are part of our National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) accreditation, and our Commission on Cancer (CoC) accreditation.
