Mile Bluff is pleased to welcome
Brooke Benson, PA-C to the medical team at
Necedah Family Medical Center. Brooke specializes in family medicine, and joins Drs.
Angela Gatzke and
Ryan Plamann in providing primary care services for all generations.
Growing up, Brooke was always interested in having a career in healthcare.
After caring for patients as a CNA and learning about various medical
conditions, Brooke was inspired to become a physician assistant.
Brooke feels it is very important to connect with patients in order to
care for them effectively. “I love helping people and forming relationships,”
says Brooke. “I think that in order to help patients, you have to
understand what is going on in their lives. [As a provider,] you’ve
got to realize that you don’t always know what your patients have
been dealing with. You have to listen to patients to know how to best
care for them.”
As Brooke cares for patients throughout the healthcare journey, she knows
that patients play a very important role. “Patients need to be involved
with their healthcare. After all, it is their body,” says Brooke.
“With my patients, I try to explain information about their care
in the most patient-friendly way. If a patient doesn’t understand
what is going on, they won’t be able to make informed decisions.
With understanding, I can help patients take the steps needed to help
their condition and overall health.”
Brooke is now accepting new patients at
Necedah Family Medical Center. To make an appointment with
Brooke, call 608-565-2000.
