Gary A. Burgoine, MD - Physician and Surgeon, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Tualatin, OR

Provider Bio

Gary Burgoine, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon at Women's Healthcare Associates in Tualatin, Oregon.

From the Provider

“Being able to make a real difference for people is one of the things I enjoy most about OB/GYN. That could mean providing reassurance to someone who is anxious, information and knowledge to help another cope with a chronic problem or compassion to a woman who is learning of a new diagnosis. My goal is to give each person confidence in understanding what will happen next and comfort in knowing that we will be there for them.”

About the Provider

The knowledge and integrity he observed in the medical profession as a young person (and Eagle Scout), plus his life-long interest in science led Dr. Burgoine down the path of becoming a physician. He didn’t realize obstetrics and gynecology would become his life’s work until his OB/GYN rotation in medical school, where he found he loved everything about it—caring for women of all ages during both illness and health, helping them address urgent situations and manage chronic conditions, attending births and performing surgery. One of the things he appreciates most about caring for women is the engaged, thoughtful and proactive way they approach topics related to health, for both themselves and the people for whom they care. He enjoys helping each person recognize and pursue the things that make them feel truly well in their lives, such as managing stress, sleep, nutrition, movement and connectedness. Dr. Burgoine helps his patients with gynecological issues, such as family planning and contraception, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, endometriosis and uterine fibroids using both medical and surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery. In addition to caring for healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies, he also helps women manage chronic conditions during pregnancy, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. 

As WHA’s Director of Clinical Informatics & Quality Improvement, Dr. Burgoine is able to impact the systems and processes we use to manage the health and quality of care for all of our patients. He is married with two daughters and enjoys gardening, cooking and making furniture. He and his family are active in their neighborhood and enjoy watching movies.

    I was not aware the MA was going to be chaperoning my breast exam until the doctor returned with her. I would have preferred advanced warning that I would be having two people seeing me topless
