​​​​“I work with my patients as equals. I assess and give them recommendations, then they make their own choices.”​

Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Brenda Banaszynski believes in the importance of individualized care in family medicine.

“A family doctor knows you, the whole person, as well as the family you’re part of,” she said. “Those insights can improve the quality of care by tailoring recommendations to each patient’s own situation, preferences and priorities.”

As a board-certified family medicine physician, Dr. Banaszynski provides full-spectrum care for everyone from children to elderly. She provides preventive care and treats commonplace illnesses and injuries. She also manages chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and screens for various disorders.

“If you have something that’s rare or requires a specialized procedure, it’s my job to refer you to the right specialist,” she said. Dr. Banaszynski is particularly interested in women’s care, including prenatal care for expectant mothers.

Before joining Marshfield Clinic Health System, Dr. Banaszynski practiced in Wausau for almost six years, serving as medical director for most of that time. “I loved the patient population,” she said, “and my experience there enhanced my ability to deliver health care that’s effective and efficient.”

She earned her medical degree at the University of Wisconsin Medical School in Madison. She did her residency in family medicine at the University of Tennessee Family Practice Residency Program in Jackson, Tennessee.

She enjoys spending her free time with her family and her cats. She is an avid reader and travels locally and worldwide. She makes annual trips to Door County with her family. Dr. Banaszynski also enjoys sports, especially volleyball and the Green Bay Packers.
