We were flooded out of our old space, but found new space close by.

Family Medicine

I am a family doctor.  I hope to create a practice that allows you and I to partner more directly around your health and your family's health.  Whoever your family is, whatever the status of your health, whatever your health priorities.

Serving my Community

I have extensive experience in hormonal therapy for gender transition, fertility options for queer families, puberty blocking for appropriate adolescents, sexually transmitted infection testing, treatment and prevention including PreP.


Addiction is a brain disease that affects behavior and recurs frequently over time.  Like many medical problems, addiction issues  are often inherited.  Medications can assist you in feeling better as you work toward your recovery.


Nurse Melisa, Pharmacist Carrie, Dr Kathy, and Nurse Susan

The Oriel Medicine Team: Nurse Melisa, Pharmacist Carrie, Dr Kathy, and Nurse Susan

Nurse Melisa and Kathy Oriel MD are the only two employees of Oriel Medicine. They hope to create a more personalized health care experience for people we serve. Pharmacist Carrie, Nurse Susan and Kathy have worked together professionally for over 20 years, and Kathy is forever grateful for the important roles they play helping out when they are able. 

Doctor and nurse: no vaulted ceilings or indoor waterfalls

Doctor, patient, exam room.  Both retro and [hopefully] radical.  I hope to bring relationship back into the center of care.  I will need your help to make this model work best for you.

Northeast corner of Whitney Way as it meets University Ave in Madison. Yep--it used to be a Taco Bell and we're in half of the lower level. Maybe someday we'll grow enough to need the whole first floor, but if we're that fortunate, it still won't be drive thru medicine!  #gotbiggoals
