Meet Donna J. Marko, NP-G
I received my nursing degree from the University of Wisconsin and completed advanced training as a nurse practitioner at St. Catherine University. I have practiced with HealthPartners geriatrics since 2006, and I love the combination of nursing and medicine. Nursing, which allows me to focus on the whole individual, is a perfect complement to medicine, which allows me to understand the rationale for why we're treating the patient.
As a provider, I want to treat every client as if they are my loved one. Everyone deserves the highest quality of care and I wholeheartedly stand by the mission, vision and values of HealthPartners. Every day, with every patient, I strive to act and practice while focusing on excellence, compassion, integrity and partnership.

More about me
I wanted to help older adults optimize their health and assist them in aging well.
Patients can expect a compassionate, empathetic person, a good listener who is easily accessible and for me to be focused on patient-centered care.
I cherish time spent with my husband and two kids. I also enjoy reading, traveling, spending time with my family and all types of outdoor adventures. I have been involved in 4H as a project leader for the past nine years.
Running, hiking, spending time in nature and spending time with my family.
Selfless, willing go above and beyond to help anyone, extremely compassionate and soft-spoken, but will always fight for what I believe in. Has high standards and always strives to give the highest quality care to patients and families.
I wanted to be an astronaut.

Prescott, WI is my favorite thing. It is where the Mississippi River and the St. Croix River meet. I love living in a small town and it's a beautiful place to go boating!

I enjoy combining the two specialties of geriatrics and orthopedics because I can make interventions that help patients feel more comfortable and often optimize their physical functioning and bone health.
