Brandi Vasquez, MD, PhD - Physician and Surgeon in Oregon City, OR

Provider Bio

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.

    Originally I made this appointment as a second opinion as I was not happy with how my disease/issue was being handled through a different organization. Dr Vasques has been beyond amazing. She listened and took my condition with the seriousness in which it needed to be addressed. The entire staff from my first phone call, check in, lab visit and follow up phone calls for insurance and scheduling for surgery have been beyond exceptional. I have not yet received bills as I am a very new patient. But I have no doubt that the ladies in billing will continue to be amazing. I have no words to explain the appreciation I have for and confidence I have in the staff at the Women?s health care clinic to handle my treatment. Dr Vasques has given me a sense of calm and relief, knowing she is handling my surgery and treatment. And I?ve literally only met her one time. She is amazing! Sadly, I have had some not so amazing providers that has left me with a bit of skepticism in regards to medical providers. Dr Vasques and the staff at Women?s clinic have completely removed that skeptic mind set and left me with nothing but confidence in both their abilities and genuine concern for my wellbeing.

    I started with Dr. Vasquez because I heard her speak at a women?s conference on hormones and new I wanted her for my doctor. She is very knowledable in her fields and treats me as a real person. I never feel rushed and she gives you her full attention during your appointment. I will follow her to any clinic she goes.
