Doctors at the Groves


Kalamazoo, Mich. – Bronson Healthcare is improving access to primary care services in west Kalamazoo with the opening of Bronson Family Medicine – The Groves. The new practice which opened May 1, 2014, is conveniently located in The Groves business park off 9th Street just south of I-94 at exit 72 in Oshtemo Township. Bronson Athletic Club and Bronson Home Health Care are also located in The Groves.

Laurel Barber, Bronson Healthcare vice president and administrator for Bronson Medical Practices, says, “We are very excited to be making this service available to area families. Many aspects of our new practice were researched and designed to improve the patient experience. Even the layout of the office was determined in collaboration with patients, doctors, staff and architects. A major point of interest to prospective patients is Bronson Family Medicine – The Groves will be able to offer same-day appointments to established patients for illnesses, physicals or preventive care.”
A team approach is being used by the healthcare providers at Bronson Family Medicine – The Groves. In addition to offering same-day appointments to patients, the team will also use a streamlined process during appointments. The practice is staffed by three physicians, all board-certified in family medicine:

  • Eric Houchin, MD, specializes in addiction medicine, behavioral health, and wellness and prevention. He previously practiced at Bronson Family Medicine Downtown.
  • Natasha Koren, MD, has special interests that include chronic disease management and skin care. She is relocating from Bronson Family Medicine Portage.
  • In addition to being board certified in family medicine, Chris Unterseher, MD, is board certified in psychiatry. He previously provided care at Bronson Internal Medicine Downtown.


All three physicians are currently accepting new patients.
