My care approach is patient-centered — learning about a patient's strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes and what motivates them.
Madelyn Duzyk, OTR/L, OTD



I’m an outpatient occupational therapist (OT) at the Mason Campus neighborhood location. My clinical specialties are pelvic floor therapy and adolescent mental health, specifically eating disorders. I value the patient and family's quality of life, and I look forward to supporting and providing resources to enhance a child's participation in meaningful occupations.

I always knew I wanted to work at Cincinnati Children's. As a high school senior, I began volunteering there in the physical therapy (PT) and OT department. After obtaining my undergraduate degree, I was hired as a clinical assistant in the same department where I had volunteered. These experiences reinforced my passion for working with children and their families in a creative and empowering way.

My care approach is patient-centered — learning about a patient's strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes and what motivates them. Taking that information, I create an evidence-based intervention plan that addresses the patient's strengths and interests while working toward their functional goals.

I’m a Kentucky Eating Disorder Council member, and I have presented locally and nationally on OT and its role in treating the eating disorder population. I have been published in the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTAs) Special Interest Section (SIS) Quarterly Practice Connections and the Pediatric Physical Therapy journal on pelvic floor impairment(s).

My hobbies include reading, being outside and sharing puns. I enjoy spending time with my husband, young son and our dogs, Pierogi and Nalesniki (named after Polish dishes).
