Dr. Rachael's major roles are continued care of internal medicine patients,
perioperative medical care and osteoporosis treatment.
Rachael, who was always good in science and liked interacting with people,
graduated from Iowa State with a Bachelor’s in Biology and Psychology.
She then received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Health
Sciences Center in Denver. Her postgraduate training – internship
and residency – she completed at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
Growing up in Dillon, Montana, Dr. Bracke remembers the relationship she
had with her family doctor from the time he delivered her to the time
she was in medical school.
“There’s something to knowing a patient through their whole
life and really knowing about the person and knowing how to change their
care,” says Dr. Bracke. “Being in a small town and having
that relationship to the community has always interested me.”
“It’s tremendous to have this many specialty providers in a
town like Cody – it’s not heard of,” Dr. Bracke says.
“I can’t think of another area with population 10,000 that
has access to neurosurgery, cardiology, urology – all of these sub
specialists in one area. There are a lot of much bigger cities that don’t
have doctors like we do here, and we have quality doctors.”
