Expert Care

As board-certified physicians and skilled registered nurses, we spend the time to get to know you well. We are always just a phone call away, whether you have a question or need to schedule a same-day appointment. We are committed to your lifelong health, so we give you the knowledge and resources you need to take the best possible care of yourself at every stage of life.


We are proud to practice at Associated Physicians, LLP, where families from Madison and nearby communities have received excellent patient-focused health care for generations. In fact, Associated Physicians, LLP is the city’s longest-serving independent multi-specialty medical practice.


For patients of all ages, we provide comprehensive, preventive care including exams, mammograms, birth control counseling, prenatal care and delivery, and surgical services including laparoscopic and gender-affirming procedures. We work to support wellness in all aspects of healthcare, but when problems occur we provide compassionate, effective diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, complications, and chronic conditions. We are committed to helping each patient we see make their own best health care decisions.


We also offer lactation counseling! We will meet with parents who are exclusively breastfeeding to help with latching, parents who are exclusively pumping to show them how to utilize their pump more effectively, and anyone in between.

Convenient and Comprehensive

We are a close-knit OB/GYN team dedicated to giving our patients the best in personalized care. We place a high value on effective communication and making sure we’re available when you need us. We are under one roof with colleagues who practice Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Podiatry, and more. Your entire family has access to expert health care at one convenient location. If you have a question about your health, we are happy to help.

Cutting Edge

Associated Physicians is dedicated to bringing our patients the latest and greatest in medical technology. Our team of OB/GYNs have onboarded two exciting examples of this. They utilize Endosee, a handheld, portable hysteroscope that offers clearer visualization for a quicker, more accurate diagnosis. With Endosee, we've eliminated the need for extra appointments and the time spent waiting for an answer since a patient would be diagnosed right away, in-clinic! They also use Tricefy, technology integrated with our ultrasound equipment that allows us to share those special first photos with our pregnant patients via text. 

We are always on the lookout for the next best thing and spare no expense when it comes to providing the finest, and most convenient, care to our patients. Check out what this means to our patients below!
