Our Family Medicine Residents

Matthew Andreoli
Rosalind Franklin University


Professional Interests:

Family medicine allows me to treat patients of all ages and with all different conditions. I enjoy truly getting to know, maintain lasting relationships with, and forming a team with each patient in order to provide them with the best care possible. Every patient is unique and knows themselves the best; by listening and working together with my patients, I am able to ultimately treat the patient as a whole, and not just their illness/disease. I am interested in full-spectrum medicine with particular interests in mental health, pediatric and adolescent medicine, preventative medicine, and in-office procedures. 


Personal Interests:

In my spare time, I enjoy running, cooking, and watching movies/television series. Most importantly, I like to spend as much time as possible with my family and friends!

I was drawn to the field of family medicine due to the daily variety. I look forward to the uniqueness of each day and each patient as a family physician. I have a particular interest in full-scope family medicine, including inpatient, outpatient, obstetric care, and procedures. I enjoy solving complex medical problems and getting to know my patients and their families over years.

I chose family medicine due to the ability to foster relationships with my patients and care for the community as a whole.

I chose family medicine because of it's emphasis on relationship building, which allows me to figure out what each patient values in order to best help them achieve their goals. Caring for patients in this way while in the hospital, clinic, and in the community is very important to me. My particular interests include obstetrics, in office procedures and sports medicine.

Sanam Salimi
Rosalind Franklin University


Professional Interests:

I'm so excited to begin Family Medicine training! While I very seriously considered all specialties, I could not come to terms with abandoning certain age groups or confining myself to one system. For this reason, I fell in love with Family Medicine and its breadth and variety. I also love the chance to build true, meaningful relationships with patients and their families while encountering medicine in its many forms. I am passionate about full-spectrum family medicine, working with underserved populations and immigrant/refugee populations, and promoting public health.


Personal Interests:

As a first-generation Iranian-American, my culture is a big part of who I am. Understanding this and the notion that culture
paints the lives around us, I love learning new languages, trying new foods, exploring new places, and traveling! I also value my time spent with those I know best: my family, twin sister, boyfriend, and friends. I love all things Wisconsin (Go Badgers!), coffee, podcasts, and making new friends.



Lauren Thomas

Creating trusting relationships with patients while helping them realize their health goals is why I love family medicine. I'm passionate about preventative medicine, community health, and providing accessible and quality care for underserved populations.

Jaclyn Hastings, Rural Medicine
University of Illinois at Rockford, College of Medicine


Professional Interests:I am passionate about Family Medicine because it's the first line of defense against illness and injuries. The family doctor must identify problems early and intervene, which is both challenging and rewarding. I also appreciate the close doctor-patient relationships formed in family medicine. Being from a small farming town in Illinois, I have a special interest in rural medicine and full-spectrum family medicine.


Personal Interests:In my free time, I enjoy thrifting, fixing things, and playing fetch with my Abyssinian cat, Eva. Given more time, I like to visit friends or head down to my family's house in the sunny Florida Keys to fish, bike, paddle-board, and listen to live music.



Michelle Hofmeister, Community Health/MPH Mastery
Medical College of Wisconsin


Professional Interests:What I love most about family medicine is the relationship and partnership with patients. I felt this was the best field to be able to communicate with patients to help them understand their health needs, and for me to create an open and safe clinical environment for patients to make their needs known. I am passionate about women's health and mental health, and family medicine is a terrific field for addressing these interests. I'm hoping to learn more about public health and policy to be able to address these passions not just as a clinician, but at a big picture level as well!


Personal Interests:In my free time I love staying active with dance and yoga, reading and writing, knitting, golfing, attending Wisconsin sports events and exploring all Milwaukee has to offer, spending time with family and playing with my 2 cats, Meat Loaf and Sweet Potato.



Stephanie Jones, Outpatient

My specific areas of interest include Women's Health and maternity care, in-office procedures, and community health particularly in regards to chronic disease prevention and other preventive care services.


Personal Interests:When I'm not working, I enjoy staying active in many different ways- hiking, running, and playing volleyball and other sports. I like to find new ways to be creative with cooking, and also enjoy spending time with family and hanging out on the couch with my cat!
