Annalise Almdale, MD, is a board-certified Physician in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Southdale ObGyn. The practice has two locations with offices in Edina and Burnsville, Minnesota.
She received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, followed by a Doctor of Medicine at the University of Indiana-Indianapolis (IUPUI). She completed her residency at Southern Illinois University (SIU) in Carbondale.
Dr. Almdale firmly believes that there must be an overarching trust between a doctor and a patient. Because if there isn’t trust and a relationship, it won’t be very fruitful.
She feels blessed to have patients trust her. She understands a gynecological visit is not something people look forward to. So, if she can get to know a little more about them and build trust, it helps. She says, “When patients are comfortable enough to hug me and almost welcome me into their family, I feel like I’ve made a difference.”
Her goal is to help patients be the best person they can be — in health and other areas of life.
Recently married and new to Minnesota, Dr. Almdale is settling into her life with yoga, walking her dog, hiking, and exploring her new state. The oldest of three sisters, it’s no surprise she pursued medicine. She is a third-generation physician, following her grandfather, both parents, and OBGYN uncles. In her free time, she enjoys reading, cooking, and traveling.
