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

Provider Bio

Carrie Dennison, ANP, is a nurse practitioner specializing in women's health at Northwest Gynecology Center in Tualatin, Oregon.

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.

    Error on RX refill - I expressed wanting to stay with my previous prescription and my decision to stay away from Estradiol. The compounding pharmacy called to confirm that I wanted Estradiol cream and I asked them to refill my previous prescritption. There was some confusion either with the pharmacy or with your office, but my request was treated with care and I was able to pick up the refill within 2 days, so all is well.
