Margaret R. Straub, PA


Margaret Straub, PA, is a physician assistant at UW Health. She cares for women with gynecologic and breast cancer who are treated with radiation therapy.

Margaret also provides care to patients with lung cancer, sarcoma and cancers that have moved to the brain.

She has a special interest in helping patients with sexual dysfunction or intestinal inflammation (enteritis) following cancer treatment.

Margaret’s care philosophy is to help patients address their challenges as they go through their cancer journey, including physical, emotional, social and financial issues. She believes her role is to listen to each patient to understand their unique needs and help them find an answer.

In her free time Margaret and her family own a farm where they raise beef, cash crops, chickens and few goats. Margaret also loves to swim and hike. She is also a community volunteer where helps at-risk youth succeed in life.

My role is not only to help patients with their physical needs but also to help them build a new future with a history of cancer. A future where cancer does not define them but is just a new addition to their life.
