  • Rebecca Mahady, MD

    I am a fully fledged Minnesotan and grew up in Winona, MN. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Minnesota and went to medical school at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I completed Pediatric residency training at the University of Minnesota and am board certified. Since finishing residency in 2015, I have worked in Pediatrics doing primary care. I love working with children and their families because it allows me to see kids grow from sweet newborns to confident teens and their parents build confidence as their kids grow and thrive. I love being able to help where I can, through all phases of development.  My priorities include partnering with families to lead a healthy lifestyle, helping kids feel better when sick, and ensuring that patient and parent questions are answered. I enjoy caring for patients with a variety of chronic or complex medical conditions and mental health conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, and depression. In my free time, I love having fun with my husband and three kids. I enjoy music, movies and making my kids giggle.
