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.

    It is very inconvenient for me to get to the office now that I've moved to the East side, but I enjoy Dr. Doom so much and feel well taken care of under her care so I do it anyway!

    Dr. Doom is a TREASURE, and feel immensely relieved and beyond lucky to have found her. She LISTENED with patience and compassion, she ASKED with curiosity and a obvious but not patronizing wealth of knowledge, and and we had a very real conversation about my history and health issues. I deeply appreciated her authenticity and earnestness, and her genuine desire to HELP.
