St. Anthony Regional Hospital welcomed Neurologist Blanca Marky, M.D., on August 14. In her role, Dr. Marky will assist patBlancaMarkyients with general neurology needs, headaches, numbness, treatment following a stroke, multiple sclerosis, dementia, epilepsy and more. She will also perform neurological treatments, including electronystagmograms (EMG), electroencephalograms (EEG) and Botox injections. Dr. Marky will serve patients full-time at the St. Anthony Clinic. She is currently accepting new patients; appointments can be made by calling (712) 792-2222.


"I am excited about the opportunity to work with patients in Carroll and the surrounding communities," Dr. Marky said. "I have always found neurology fascinating, but what I enjoy most is the people. In my position, I feel that the more a patient understands his or her condition, the better they can live with and hopefully overcome the challenge. I set clear expectations and surround each patient with care and understanding."



Dr. Marky comes to St. Anthony with more than two decades of medical experience. Most recently, she served as neurologist for Medical Associates in Dubuque, Iowa. She has worked in numerous roles over the course of her career, including attending physician in Colorado, Iowa and South Dakota, and assistant professor in Nebraska and Mexico. She completed her residency at the University of Nebraska, University of Texas and Kansas University; and is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, American Academy of Neurology, American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and American Academy of Nursing (FAAN). She is a native of Mexico City, Mexico, and plans to utilize her fluency in Spanish, French and English to communicate with, and serve, patients in west central Iowa.



"This is my niche; this is what I was born to do," Dr. Marky said. "It is my goal to make each patient more comfortable, to help them improve their quality of life and to teach family members how they can support their loved ones."



"The addition of Dr. Marky and this new service line is an exciting opportunity for St. Anthony and the communities of west central Iowa," said Ed Smith, St. Anthony President and CEO. "We are honored to provide full-time neurology services in the region, and look forward to helping our community members locally, when they need help most."



Dr. Marky and her husband, Luis Marky, Ph.D., have relocated to Carroll and look forward to becoming part of the community.
