Michael Goodhope, DO

Dr. Goodhope attended medical school at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, MO, followed by an internship and residency in family medicine at Botsford General Hospital in Farmington Hills, MI. After completing residency training in 2003, he joined the United States Air Force and remained on active duty until 2008. He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He joined Rapid City Medical Center’s Family Medicine Department in 2010.

An osteopathic doctor (DO) is a fully licensed physician trained in a comprehensive approach to treating patients. Rather than addressing specific symptoms or illnesses, they look at the underlying causes of disease and the overall picture of a patient’s health to help them achieve and maintain a healthy life.

His father, a retired internal medicine physician, had a significant influence on his decision to practice medicine. Initially studying physical therapy, he ultimately decided osteopathic family medicine would allow him to help patients in the way he wanted to practice.

In his free time, he enjoys biking, skiing, hiking, gardening and spending time with his children.

Eric Fausch, MD

Dr. Eric Fausch believes Family Medicine is the sentinel of the healthcare system. The specialty provides whole-person care and interfaces subspecialties with patients and families. With that purpose, he provides evidence-based screenings for early identification of disease and efficient care coordination to help connect patients with subspecialists. His strengths are interpersonal coordination and patient education.

Dr. Eric Fausch completed full-spectrum rural Family Medicine training at Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU) Cascades East residency in 2021. There he practiced primary evaluation and management of complex patients exhibiting multisystemic disease. His training pedigree taught him to facilitate rapid evaluation and referrals in resource-impaired environments. He is excited to establish his practice here in Rapid City, where he serves as a valuable partner in accomplishing patients’ healthcare goals.

Dr. Eric Fausch completed medical education at University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine in 2018. Prior to that, he completed undergraduate education at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. He was raised in many regions of the country (NY, NC, KY, MI, WI, FL) but has found his true home here in the Midwest/mountain west. He shares this journey with his wife Kathryn and three young children. He enjoys tennis, mountain biking, winter sports (skiing and skating), music (listening and performance), and enjoys staring at the night sky through finely-polished glass.
