Paul E. Dieringer, MD, a Physician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in internal medicine.
Dr. Dieringer obtained a Bachelor of Science in zoology from the University of Nevada, Reno, in 1972 and continued his education with a medical doctorate from the University of Southern California (USC) in 1976. He subsequently served a residency in internal medicine with Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena in 1979. After providing superior care practicing internal medicine from 1980 to 1994, he then excelled as medical director of the HAWC Community Health Center (now Community Health Alliance) in Reno from 1995 to 2002. With the Great Basin Medical Group from 2002 to 2014 and Renown Medical Group from 2014 to 2016, both in Reno, Dr. Dieringer excelled as an internist.
Dr. Dieringer’s memberships include the American Board of Internal Medicine, the Washoe County Medical Society, serving as president from 1991 to 1992, and the Nevada State Medical Association, where he served as president from 1996 to 1997. In what he considers a career highlight, Dr. Dieringer received a Preceaptor Carismus Award from the University of Nevada School of Medicine in 2015 and was the recipient of a community award for helping establish Saint Mary’s Home Care by the Nevada State Medical Association in which he spent 16 years.
Listening to patients contributed to Dr. Dieringer’s success as a doctor of medicine. He also spent a lot of time with patients, which is where he was often at odds with corporate medicine because it discourages the habit in favor of greater productivity. However, being with his patients was what Dr. Dieringer became known for, other than his monumental sense of humor, which he found to be a great way to make people open up and feel comfortable.
Now retired from active practice, Dr. Dieringer would very much like to write a book on humor because he used it so much in his service. He takes great pride in his three sons’ involvement in medical practice. One graduated from a medical school in Nevada and completed a family practice residency in the same state while obtaining a master’s degree in public health and is serving on the faculty of the family practice department at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. Another son holds a master’s degree in public health and is working in the field of epidemiology in Seattle, and a third son has served in inpatient aid for occupational speech and physical therapy.
