Dr. Farhat Kokan has been seeing patients at
Marshfield Clinic since 1998, and depending
on the time of year, she is one of Marshfield
Clinic’s busiest providers. As the only allergy
specialist in northwest Wisconsin, her
practice spikes when the ragweed and pollen
season are in full swing. Sneezing, hacking,
watery eyes and breathing problems are
among the complaints she hears from
patients suffering with allergies, asthma or
immunology issues. “The immune system has
always fascinated me,” she says. “I strive for
each of my patients to enjoy the outdoors
during the pollen season symptom free.”
Kokan, who also sees patients at the
Chippewa Falls center, welcomed the
opportunity to join Marshfield Clinic after
hearing about the organization’s stellar reputation. “I kept hearing about the wonderful group of physicians in different specialties and the valuable research that is conducted at the Clinic.” A medical school graduate of Ahmadu Bello University in Nigeria, Dr. Kokan completed her residency at St. Albans Hospital in Herts, England and later a fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
As a member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, Dr. Kokan has expertise in a wide range of medical conditions that include asthma, hay fever, eczema, food and drug allergies, latex allergies, bee sting reactions, chronic cough and primary and secondary immune deficiencies. Patients can expect that she will map out a course of treatment that offers the best possible outcome.
Married with two children, Dr. Kokan enjoys reading, hiking and spending time with her family.
