October 1, 2020
Brodstone Hospital has added Dr. Kendra Luebke, M.D., adult and pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist to their Specialty Clinic Providers list. Starting in October, Dr. Luebke will visit Brodstone monthly, joining 24 other providers who currently hold clinics at least monthly. She will be traveling from Omaha where she practices at the main ENT Specialists, PC location.
Luebke graduated with distinction from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln with a degree in biochemistry. She earned her medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, graduating with distinction. She completed her residency in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Luebke is board certified in otolaryngology- head and neck surgery. She joined ENT Specialists, PC in 2018.
Luebke, whose maiden name was Kaldahl, is no stranger to Superior as she is a 2005 graduate of Superior High School. "Growing up in a small town and even when I did my rotation in medical school, I came back to Superior. I saw there was a big need for specialty care in small town Nebraska and I have always felt the urge to come back to a small town and provide that care. I am excited to do that in my hometown." Luebke added. "I love that ENT provides a variety for me in the day to day practice. I enjoy both the combination of clinic time as well as surgery. One of my favorite things about it is that I get to care for patients from infancy up to adulthood." She also added that she's excited to see her family more, as her parents, John and Mary Kaldahl, live in the area, as well as her grandmother and sister. Seeing familiar faces, people she grew up with and those who helped her along the journey is something she is looking forward to as well. Luebke started working as a CNA at Brodstone when she was in high school and shadowed both Dr. Blecha and Dr. Theis throughout her clinical rotations.
"We are excited about Dr. Luebke joining our medical staff. She is a high caliber physician who will bring a much needed specialty to our region, further expanding our extensive Specialty Clinic." Treg Vyzourek, BMH CEO said.
Luebke is hoping to provide ENT services for both pediatric and adult patients including ear tubes, tonsils and adenoids, sinusitis, hearing loss and testing, and more. She will be available in the specialty clinic at Brodstone once a month for both clinic visits and surgery.
