Carrie Dennison, ANP-BC, MSN - Nurse Practitioner in Tualatin, OR

Provider Bio

From the Provider

“I see a lot of women who feel out of control or overwhelmed by the health or life issue they’re going through—whether they’re experiencing a normal part of how our bodies change over time or a more complex gynecological issue. It’s very rewarding to sense their relief when I am able to help them feel okay about what’s happening or put them on track to get the care they need to resolve the issue.”

About the Provider

Carrie has devoted her career to the care and support of women of all ages. She loves working with women and encourages her patients to create the healthiest lifestyle they can for themselves—whatever phase of life they’re in. She strives to help patients understand what’s normal and what’s not—and all the different forms being healthy can take that they maybe hadn’t considered. She enjoys working with women of all ages, from adolescents through women considering their options around fertility and family planning, to women in peri- or post-menopause. She helps patients address a wide variety of gynecologic conditions, such as vulvar problems, abnormal bleeding, breast issues and incontinence. Carrie is also knowledgeable about many alternative health practices and is supportive of her patients who choose to use them. 

In her spare time, Carrie “likes making things and raising things,” from cooking, canning, knitting, sewing and crafts—to raising chickens, bees, vegetables and flowers. She also loves hiking, skiing and just being outdoors.

    Carrie Dennison and her nurse, Linda, are exceptional medical professionals! They are caring, knowledgeable and on top of that, incredible human beings on every level. I was a patient of Dan Schrinsky's for over 35 years and when he retired, I truly thought he couldn't be replaced, I found his caliber of medical acumen in Carrie! And then her nurse, Linda. I am truly grateful.

    Carrie is THE BEST! I have referred many of my friends to her, because I know she cares about my health as well as those I care about. She takes time to ask about how I am and remembers (and makes good notes) on things we discuss. She makes me feel like I am her only patient, which is incredible! She also listens to me and gives me advice that will best fit my lifestyle and what works best for me. I would suggest her to anyone!
