Marilyn Chohaney, M.D. Family Medicine
Dr. Marilyn Chohaney has been providing health care to women and their family members since 1980. She completed her internship in Internal Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1980, then joined the US Public Health Service in Bethel, Alaska where she served the Native American community in the Alaskan Bush for 4 years. She subsequently completed a residency in Family Medicine at University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1987, during which time she was Chief Resident. She earned her Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Cincinnati. Dr Chohaney has been certified in Family Medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine since 1988.
Dr. Chohaney grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. An avid musician from a young age, she earned Bachelor Degrees in both Chemistry and Music Performance (flute) from Wellesley College in Massachusetts. The impact of this education at a prominent women’s college has fostered her vision shared by all of her partners at Madison Women’s Health to focus on strong physician-patient communication and a belief in empowering women to strive for health and balance.
Dr Chohaney is committed to the highest quality of care in all aspects of women’s health. Her special interests reflect her strong grounding in Family Medicine, a specialty that sees a patient through the entire life cycle in the context of her family and community. Her interests include:
Dr Chohaney lives in rural Verona with her husband, David Lonsdorf, also a Family Physician. Her children are grown and their happiness and successes provide much personal satisfaction. When not practicing medicine, she performs on her flute with The Oakwood Chamber Players and other free lance musicians in the Madison area, and enjoys home cooking and the outdoors.
