No Experience Necessary
Question by emmA: Any Great Gynecologists in PORTLAND OREGON?
I need to have a hysterectomy and am looking for a better GYN doctor in the big city instead of the rural area I live in. I’d like to have the surgery done at OHSU or St Vincents as they are both great hospitals and they take my insurance.
If you have a recommendation, please let me know who they are and any good points about your experience.
Thanks a lot!

I live in Portland and have a great GYN I recommend highly. Her name is Lisa Diepenhorst. She did my hysterectomy. She works with a group of doctors at the Women’s Clinic. The website is www.wcpdx.com
I really liked Dr. Diepenhorst because she took a lot of time explaining all my options to me before my hysterectomy. She is very kind and she did a GREAT job on my surgery. I was really scared about having surgery and she was very sensitive to that. I really appreciate her care and expertise. Take it from a nurse – she’s a great doc!
The only down side would be that I don’t think Dr. Diepenhorst does surgeries at OHSU or St. Vincents – I think she only works out of Providence Portland Medical Center (PPMC) and Legacy Emanuel. I had my surgery at PPMC and received excellent care.
Hope this helps. Good luck to you.
