Rebecka Bogue Docken, M.D.

I was initially drawn to the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology because of the diversity of this field, it combines continuity of care, preventative care, and surgical expertise. I have found that the ability to care for multiple generations and to share in their intimate moments with my patients and their families is humbling. I enjoy the long-lasting relationships that are built with patients, from their first gynecological visit, during their pregnancy and then caring for them during menopause. My special interests include contraception, endometriosis, pregnancy care, and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.

I completed medical school in my home state of South Dakota and residency near Chicago, IL. During medical school I developed an international elective in Ghana, Africa and traveled there to bring medical care to underserved women. That experience solidified my desire to continue to advocate for women’s health and I am honored to serve this year as our districts ACOG Vice Chair.

My husband and I purchased our first home in Minneapolis and are excited to explore the many running and biking trails along the lakes. We moved my grand-mothers piano from South Dakota and I’m excited to get back to playing music. Our 7- year- old husky is overjoyed to finally have her very own backyard and she has been chasing rabbits since we arrived. We look forward to making Minneapolis our home.
