Being a Wisconsin native, and having practiced out of state for several years, Dr. Hokenson is thrilled to be back home caring for the newborns of Wisconsin. His goal is to help provide the best in multidisciplinary, family-centered medical management for premature infants and neonates requiring intensive care. Dr. Hokenson frequently reminds himself that what is common for our staff, is not common for families who have a baby in the NICU. It is often a very frightening experience. Dr. Hokenson, along with his colleagues, try to reduce this anxiety while providing the best and safest care for our babies and their families.
