Provider Bio

From the Provider

“I want each woman I see to truly feel that I am invested in her health and our relationship. With something as personal as obstetrics and gynecology, that relationship is central to being able to have meaningful interactions about issues and care that support lifelong wellness.”

About the Provider

Although Dr. Garvie-Loveland’s family is full of doctors, her original career plan was to become an astronaut—until the frightening prospect of going to space fully dawned on her. It turns out OB/GYN was the perfect fit, combining her love of science with her passion for supporting women of all ages. She enjoys helping women with issues related to contraception, vulvar health, abnormal Pap tests, abnormal bleeding, sexual dysfunction and perimenopause and menopause. Dr. Garvie-Loveland cares for healthy pregnant patients through WHA’s Pathways program and sees women with more complicated pregnancies in the Moderate Risk Clinic at Northwest Perinatal Center. When it comes to wellness, she is interested in helping her patients identify steps they can take to support their own emotional, mental and physical wellbeing through self-care.

Dr. Garvie-Loveland enjoys running and spending time with her close circle of friends. She and her husband enjoy camping and the outdoors with their two young children and Golden Retriever.

    I especially appreciated the invitation to participate in the decision making in my care. I felt heard and valued in the process. I appreciated the medical soundness of this doctor's advice as well as anticipating the future care. Making a transition from one care provider to another can sometimes be disappointing, but this one was wonderful in every way. The medical assistant was also very well prepared and extremely helpful; warm and welcoming. Thank you to all who made this transition so welcoming.

    Dr. Garvie-Loveland took extra time to help me understand the safest way for breech babies to exit the womb. Despite this information coming as a huge surprise, as we've asked this question to every care provider at WHA we've been in contact with, she handled my shock very calmly. She helped me understand what the research shows and was willing to answer all of my frantic questions.

    I felt the provider had one foot out the door. I had to ask questions (as opposed to it being provided) on what to look for or be concerned about going forward. Overall I didn't feel taken care of.
