Rachel Coburn, MD


Rachel Coburn, MD, is a UW Health geriatrician. She is also a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Dr. Coburn provides comprehensive care for older adults who have a range of health conditions.

Dr. Coburn provides primary care and general wellness services for older adults. She treats age-related injuries and illnesses and provides chronic disease management for complicated conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. She also provides memory care services to address cognition issues related to aging.

Dr. Coburn also works with older patients who have been admitted to the hospital and are experiencing confusion, delirium or other acute age-related symptoms.

Because many of her patients have complicated medical histories, Dr. Coburn seeks to understand their full range of needs, challenges and goals. She strives to make every patient feel comfortable and heard and enjoys getting to know them on a personal level.

Outside of work, Dr. Coburn enjoys gardening, birdwatching and spending time in nature.

I always want to ensure that my patients and their families feel comfortable asking questions about their treatment plan, so they fully understand what’s happening with their care.
