Former McFarland Doctor Back Home at Yahara Clinic
Madison, Wisconsin - Dr. Sharon Stake was working at the Mayo Clinic in Eau Claire when she was contacted by Dr. Sandy Kamnetz, a physician at UW Health Yahara Clinic and vice chair of clinical care in family medicine.
"Dr. Kamnetz so kindly called me up and said that she would like to have me return to my previous position," said Stake, who spent 13 years at the UW Health McFarland Clinic before leaving for Eau Claire. "I loved my patients in Eau Claire as I had in McFarland, making the decision a bit harder. After weighing the options, I decided to return home to the Madison area and resume my career here."
Stake is now a family medicine physician at the Yahara Clinic, which opened in the fall of 2011 after the merger of the UW Health clinics in McFarland and Monona.
"I am very excited about working in the new clinic," she said. "I have great respect for my partners and staff, and I think they are committed to delivering high quality patient care."
Stake has a special interest in sex education, sexually transmitted diseases, and Lyme disease. She looks forward to getting reacquainted with her old surroundings and offering the best possible service to her patients.
"I will do my best to partner with them in their health care needs," she said. "I believe it is critical that physicians listen to their patients and address their concerns in a caring manner. I love being part of the UW system, and I feel we truly are one of the best health care operations in the country."
Stake is a graduate of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and completed her residency there.
