Provider Bio

Dr. Carmen Doom is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon in Portland, Oregon.

About the Provider

Dr. Doom grew up in Minnesota and attended Macalester College. After receiving her BA in biology in 1998, she moved to San Diego to pursue research (and to warm up on the beaches). She moved to Portland to earn her medical degree and a PhD in immunology at Oregon Health and Science University. She then completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University.

Dr. Doom is a scientist at heart, but prefers direct clinical care over the research laboratory. She enjoys all aspects of women’s health care, with special expertise in adolescent gynecology, high risk obstetrics, autoimmune disorders and contraceptive counseling.

Her favorite part of medicine is getting to know patients and their families, and she takes special care to identify all facets of a patient’s medical concern. She strives to provide each patient with a thorough understanding of her condition and a clear treatment plan.

When not at work, Dr. Doom enjoys traveling, practicing her Spanish, solving crossword puzzles, watching modern dance and spending time with her dog.

    Dr. Doom really listened to everything I had to say and helped put me at ease. Even with tight appt availability, she helped me make extra ultrasound appts so I could check on my baby and be reassured there was a still a heartbeat. I appreciated her humor and I felt like I wasn't judged for being overly anxious and worried about my pregnancy. she was always reassuring and offered advice to help me have a successful pregnancy.

    Dr. Doom was/is amazing. She listened to my concerns and gave me great advice in regard to my pregnancy. She advocated for me which was very much appreciated. I had a c-section and she took the time to walk me through it and even during the surgery she was talking to me. Loved having her as my provider!!
