With a decade of experience in family medicine and nurturing relationships, Melissa O’Keefe, PA-C, returns to where her roots lie–ready to practice in western Wisconsin and establish connections that last beyond checkups.
Melissa was born and raised in River Falls, Wisconsin. She finished her undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and acquired her board certification as a Physician Assistant in 2013. Even as a child, Melissa had always envisioned herself working in the medical field because of how it perfectly fuses the study of science and the art of nurturing relationships. She chose Family Medicine as her area of specialty because it exposes her to “a wide spectrum of ages” and various challenges in her day-to-day practice. Melissa treasures the close relationships she builds with her patients the most. Over the years, she has grown to love these connections as she witnesses her patients’ health journey and becomes part of it.
When not in the clinic, Melissa is a nature lover who unwinds through on outdoor adventures like camping, hiking, and fishing with her husband and kids. She is a living testament to the exceptional care the Hudson Physicians offer, a major driving force behind her decision to join the team.
Melissa O’Keefe, PA-C, is determined to establish lasting connections further and fulfill the Hudson Physicians’ mission by providing tailored care to more patients in the community.
