(573) 636-5248

Dr. Berendzen is an obstetrician and gynecologist, providing sexual health education for adolescents, obstetrics, laparoscopy & minimally invasive surgery, and vaginal surgery.


Dr. Jodi Burns Berendzen grew up knowing that she wanted to become a physician. She was greatly influenced by her own family physician, the late Dr. Thomas Hancock, who treated each patient with a genuine kindness that is remembered by many. Jodi Burns is a native of Linn, Missouri, and graduated from Helias High School in 1999.

She attended St. Louis University, and then continued her education at St. Louis University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, TN.

She married Jeff Berendzen, and their lives are very busy raising four young children! “While many days are quite chaotic, it’s those four wonderful kiddos that bring so much joy into our lives.” She and her husband made the choice to come back “home” to Jefferson City so their children would have many of the opportunities they each had, especially spending time with grandparents and extended family. It is her personal experiences that allow Dr. Berendzen to relate so well to her patients.

She strives to give each patient personalized attention, up-to-date clinical knowledge, and a genuine kindness modeled by great physicians. “As a physician, I can be a part of some of the very happiest moments of life, as well as some of the most difficult challenges when there are complications with pregnancy or the emotional and physical changes that occur with age. I am honored to be a part of the journey, and that is why I love the job I do.”

Dr. Berendzen has special interests in preconception and prenatal care, adolescent health education, abnormal uterine bleeding, and routine well-woman exams. She has expertise in obstetrics and minimally-invasive surgery, including laparoscopy. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jodi Berendzen, call the Women’s Clinic of JCMG at 573-636-5248.
