Associated Physicians, LLP is unique. We are Dane County’s longest-serving, independent, multi-specialty medical practice, so we’re proud to have provided expert personalized health care for generations of families in Madison and the surrounding communities.

 

Our board-certified physicians are specialists in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Podiatry. Our electronic medical record system, Epic, is state-of-the-art. Our medical teams include experienced, highly skilled registered nurses. And our adjunct services, including on-site physical therapy, behavioral health, nutrition counseling, laboratory, radiology, and the anticoagulation clinic give you greater access and health care options.

 

Associated Physicians, LLP has always been a medical practice directed by doctors, not insurance companies. So we do what’s best for our patients, not someone else’s bottom line. In an increasingly complex and impersonal health care system, Associated Physicians, LLP favors long-term doctor-patient relationships devoted to your best health.
