Provider Bio

Chidimma Abanulo (formerly Eto), MD, is a board-eligible urogynecologist physician and surgeon at Northwest Gynecology Center in Portland, Oregon.

From the Provider

"I hope that each woman I care for in my practice leaves knowing that her voice was heard and that her problems have been taken seriously. I also want her to rest assured that I will work hard to find the best solution that is in HER best interest."

About the Provider

Dr. Abanulo got her first doctor bag and declared her profession to her family when she was just four years old in Atlanta, Georgia. Raised in a large family within a very tight-knit community, advocacy for women was part of her upbringing. This made her choice of specialty, where she is able to advocate daily for empowering, quality health care for women, a natural one.

Dr. Abanulo considers it a privilege to care for women and to help them find solutions to some of the most common, yet frustrating, gynecologic problems they face. Her specific areas of practice include vaginal prolapse, urinary frequency, urinary leakage, bladder pain, recurrent urinary tract infections and fecal incontinence.

Among Dr. Abanulo’s talents are designing dessert tables and decorating for parties. She and her husband have a young daughter around whom their world revolves outside of work.

    The doctor is amazing! Intelligent, caring, thorough...she really understands my holistic health picture and I always feel like she listens to me and works together with me on a treatment plan that I can feel comfortable about. I came to Dr Eto after years with other gynes who had 'my way or the highway' treatments and could not think beyond the standard methodology, which was birth control and hormones are great for everyone. That is not true for my body or my situation. Dr Eto listens to me and supports my needs, and helps me find alternatives that work for me. And she has taught me about my health in ways no previous doctor ever has. She has even taught me natural ways to help prevent UTI's, for example. She has discussed with me many care options for my issues and I always feel like her and her staff are there for me if I get sick and need care. I always feel like there are various plans available, and her office is a safe space. And I feel like she sees me as a person and cares for my wellbeing.
