Karen Hulbert, Physician at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in family and addiction medicine.
Dr. Hulbert obtained a Medical Doctor in 1994 from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, formerly known as Chicago Medical School. She is certified in addiction medicine by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and in family medicine by American Board of Family Medicine and is licensed to practice medicine in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Since 2000, Dr. Hulbert has provided superior care as a physician with ThedaCare Regional Medical Center, a premier medical facility in Appleton, Wisconsin, where she specializes in family medicine, women’s health and addiction medicine, treating patients with substance abuse disorder and provides outpatient medicine services. In addition, she excels as an associate professor of family medicine with the Medical College of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa and has served her country as a physician with the United States Navy.
It was Dr. Hulbert’s exposure to the medical realm, thanks to her mother’s nursing career, that developed her interest in her current field. She was drawn to the idea of being there for people at any given moment of their lives, especially the most stressful ones that involve their health and well-being. It was fulfilling for her to be the person others turn to for help and reassurance.
While teaching at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Dr. Hulbert realized that she wanted to go into rural medicine. She was one of the only family doctors who was delivering babies at the main hospital for two years. She immediately took advantage of the opportunity when it came up, and now she is very happy to have two rural clinics that allow her to do obstetrics and hospital medicine at the same time. She saw it as a good move, since she was trained to do everything, which is something rarely found among practitioners like her.
As a career highlight, Dr. Hulbert mentions running clinical courses that allowed her to touch base with more than 100 medical students. She led one of their first clinical examination classes, providing them with their first exposure to family medicine. It gave her a sense of joy sharing stories with them about her experience in the field. In the coming years, Dr. Hulbert hopes to be able to expand her practice by offering different mental health and addiction treatment options, especially in rural settings, and connecting people to the best possible care.
