Great Andexxa Debate

Presented By: Mark Walsh, MD – Emergency/Internal Medicine, South Bend
Matthew DuPre, MD – Family Medicine, Beacon Health System


Mark Walsh, M.D., FACEP, practices Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine at Saint Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in South Bend, Indiana.

Dr. Walsh graduated from the University of Notre Dame where he received the Rink Academic Scholarship and an athletic scholarship for track and field. He graduated from the University of Bologna, Italy School of Medicine in 1976, attending medical school in the country of his mother’s birth. Dr. Walsh completed his residency in internal medicine in 1980 at Northwestern University in Chicago. Since that time, he has practiced emergency medicine and internal medicine and has been board certified in internal medicine since 1980 and emergency medicine since 1987.


Growing up as the son of a family doctor in rural southern Indiana, Dr. Matthew DuPre saw first-hand the need and sincere appreciation for doctors in small communities. Inspired to pursue medicine, Dr. DuPre completed the rural track at Indiana University School of Medicine and spent a year working at his father’s practice in Sullivan.
“I would watch my dad walk into the room and sit down. He taught me that the doctor isn’t the most important person in the room – the patient is,” Dr. DuPre said. “He also instilled in me the importance of building relationships and partnerships. You have to connect with your patients because they should always be part of the decision-making process when it comes to their health.”
Much like his father served as a role model, Dr. DuPre is now helping train, mold and inspire new physicians as an associate director of the Family Medicine Residency Program at Memorial Hospital of South Bend. A 2015 graduate of the program, Dr. DuPre is just as passionate about mentoring young doctors as he is about practicing family medicine.
“One of the most important lessons to teach them is to be present for the patient every time you walk into a room. You must give them your full attention, understanding that no matter what happened right before, or what might happen immediately after, is not important,” Dr. DuPre said. “You only have a short time to earn and establish their trust. Our patients deserve our undivided attention.”
