Provider Bio

Brandi Vasquez, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon at Women's Healthcare Associates in Oregon City, Oregon.

From the Provider

“Our definitions of health and our understanding of what that includes are constantly evolving—that’s the nature of science and medicine. We now know it’s not all about a goal weight or body type, but the things we choose to do every day that make us feel better, more satisfied and happier. My goal is to support my patients in finding health for themselves by discovering and practicing the things that make them feel well.”

About the Provider

Fascinated by science, Dr. Vasquez intended to become a researcher after completing her combination MD/PhD program. Listening to a newborn’s heartbeat during her very first week of medical school, she realized the most satisfying part of science to her was its impact on people, and there was no better way to experience that than through the practice of medicine. Obstetrics and gynecology allowed her to combine her love of surgery with the ability to develop long-term relationships with her patients.

Today, the process of helping women understand what’s happening with their bodies and empowering them to take charge of their overall health brings Dr. Vasquez the most satisfaction. She loves the daily variety of OB/GYN, including all aspects of pregnancy and childbirth; preventative health; sexual health; and helping women address gynecological concerns, such as abnormal bleeding, fibroids and adenomyosis. She still enjoys surgery and is skilled in minimally invasive approaches, including laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Outside of work, Dr. Vasquez enjoys being outdoors, cooking and spending time with family. After finishing her OB/GYN residency, she completed a global health fellowship in Moshi, Tanzania, and continues to be interested in global health and education.
