Physician Assistants, Certified
Rebecca Babinski, PAC
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Physician Assistant’s program in 2001, Rebecca Babinski had the privilege of working in various specialties and hospital settings. Initially, she worked in the Emergency Department and Surgery. While it was satisfying and challenging, her ultimate goal was to provide medical services in the field of women’s health. Babinski started practicing gynecology in 2007 and experienced serving all ages of women, from the adolescent who needed help managing her periods, to women later in life dealing with the challenges of menopause. She particularly enjoys seeing women for their annual exams where she helps them find their way to optimal health, whether it is offering them the many contraceptive options available, controlling their abnormal or problematic bleeding or helping patients dealing with issues of sexual dysfunction. Babinski believes in the importance of preventative healthcare through patient education and the direct involvement of her patients in all decisions regarding treatment and medical care.
