Provider Bio

From the Provider

“One of the most gratifying things for me in my practice is meeting women where they are in terms of managing their health and providing education and support that helps then make informed decisions about their health."

About the Provider

Dr. Crim has been an advocate for women’s health since graduating from UC Santa Cruz and becoming involved in a women’s health collective—which pointed her in the direction of medical school. She enjoys helping women understand their bodies and what they’re experiencing and brings a practical and positive approach to reassuring them and moving forward together. Dr. Crim’s area of expertise focuses on managing issues related to reproductive health throughout a woman’s life such as contraception, menstrual irregularities, and peri- and postmenopausal changes, which might include minimally-invasive surgical treatments such as hysteroscopy or laparoscopic hysterectomy.  Other special interests are HPV infections and cervical cancer prevention, and pelvic support problems such as incontinence. 

When she’s not working, she enjoys home decorating, gardening, riding bicycles, and other outdoor activities with friends and family.

    Confusion about whether exam was needed or just 'check in'. Seems exam only encouraged every other year - perhaps for insurance reasons?
