Browse their impressive credentials below, then call 715-531-6800 to make an appointment.
1. Melanie Berg
Dr. Berg is a skilled podiatrist who focuses on medical conditions related to the feet and lower legs. From pain to swelling, skin irritation to tingling, Melanie has been treating patients’ lower extremities since 2002. Proper diagnosis and treatment of the feet are essential to maintaining an active lifestyle, and as a hiker, fisher, and camper, Melanie knows how important it is to move with ease. Dr. Berg is especially thrilled to be joining the practice since Hudson is her hometown, which means she has the chance to help her friends and neighbors get well. “Everyone needs healthy feet to keep them going,” Melanie says,” and I take pride in knowing that I can help people stay on their feet.”
2. Taylor Mueller
As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Mueller serves all ages and also specializes in family medicine, women’s health, mental health, and preventative care. Hudson Physicians’ family-focused and patient-centered culture made Taylor’s decision to join the team an easy one. Dr. Mueller focuses on forging relationships with patients and working with them to achievable goals with a holistic approach. She enjoys yoga, running, spending time outdoors with her family and reading — all great components of a healthy lifestyle. “I encourage patients to be the healthiest version of themselves,” Taylor says, “physically, mentally, and emotionally.”
3. Kara Gratton
A graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kara chose Hudson Physicians because of “their core values and mission, and because they deliver the very best care to the local community.” Kara is particularly drawn to the sports community as a soccer lover herself. After suffering injuries in the sport and finding great care from sports medicine physicians, Kara became driven to help others get back on the field. In addition to soccer, Kara delights in spending time in nature, walking, hiking, running, and riding. She is eager to help patients take an active role in their health.
4. Ryan McFarland
As a Family Medicine physician who practices obstetrics, Dr. McFarland enjoys the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with his patients, from pregnancy to parenthood. A compassionate and time-sensitive provider, he understands his patients want quality and efficient care. “Building relationships allows me to understand the unique aspects of patients’ lives to determine the best treatment options,” Dr. McFarland reflects. Ryan is excited to see how active Hudson and the surrounding communities are and to be cycling, hiking, and hunting alongside his neighbors.
5. Sarah McFarland
Dr. McFarland — yes, another one — starts at Hudson Physicians the same day as her husband Ryan, and she is also a Family Medicine and obstetrics physician. “One of the most rewarding aspects of Family Medicine is that I get to care for mom, baby and the entire family,” she says. Sarah also specializes in joint, muscle and ligament injuries; balance and incremental changes are part of her recovery recipe to get others back on their feet. A native of rural southwest Minnesota, Dr. McFarland is pleased to see all the opportunities for hiking, biking, climbing and camping in the area. She should feel right at home.
