Madden, Megan MD
I earned my medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I then went on to complete an internal medicine internship and neurology residency, where I was chief resident, at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison, Wisconsin.
I was born and raised in a small town in Northern California. I decided to go into medicine because I enjoy science and wanted to work with people to improve the quality of their lives. Early in my medical education, I realized that I was fascinated by neurology because there is still so much mystery and unknown in the field. This mystery provides challenge in my practice and the need for continuous learning. After completing my neurology residency and fellowship in Madison Wisconsin, I decided that the pacific northwest, with a more temperate climate, was the place for me. My family loves to call the Northwest home! We truly enjoy the natural beauty, the wonderful people, the world class food, and being able to get outside year round.
I am a general neurologist and see all types of neurological conditions. I have fellowship training in epilepsy. I also have a special interest in treating headache as I find this to be an often overlooked but common neurological condition. I also do botulinum toxin injections for chronic migraine. I believe that in order to provide good neurological care, one needs to listen carefully to the patient and their families as well as pay attention to details.
I thrive by getting outside as much as possible. My passion is gardening and I especially love taking care of rose plants. I find the pacific northwest to be the perfect area for this hobby, especially as compared to growing roses in Wisconsin where it was much more a hobby of “rose survival” than “rose gardening”. Here in Oregon, my roses bloom multiple times a season, which I just love to watch! I also enjoy running, camping and boating. I find my balance by getting outside, exercising or spending time with family whenever I get the chance.
