Provider Bio

Michele Quinn, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon at Women's Healthcare Associates in Oregon City, Oregon.

From the Provider

"I didn’t go straight from college to medical school to residency and I didn’t know until late in college that I had an interest in medicine. I worked a bunch of different jobs – some were good, some weren’t, my husband was in the military and went to war, I smoked and I quit (it wasn’t easy), my mom had breast cancer, I had a baby, life happened with its ups and downs. All of those experiences that make life messy make me a better doctor. I may not share the same experiences with a patient, but I can empathize with her and offer a sympathetic ear without judgement. For each patient, I ask myself: What can I do for her on her terms, to be a little healthier, to be happier, to worry less? What can I do to support her? Life is hard. The best part of my job is when I make a patient’s life easier."

About the Provider

Dr. Quinn enjoys all aspects of obstetrics and feels privileged to care for pregnant and birthing women. Her objective is to provide women the resources and tools they need to achieve their birthing goals, whether that includes medical pain management or an un-medicated labor and delivery. Outside of pregnancy, she works with women of all ages to optimize their health and quality of life through appropriate preventive care and treatment. She is a minimally-invasive surgeon trained in hysteroscopy, laparoscopy and robotic surgery. Dr. Quinn is also a fibroid specialist knowledgeable about the entire spectrum of treatment, from medical options to non-invasive procedures, minimally invasive fibroid removal and hysterectomy.

Outside of work, Dr. Quinn enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, crime novels, spending time outdoors and knitting. She and her husband have a teenage son.

    So happy that Dr Quinn had the forethought to send me a message in MyChart to prevent ever running out of Rx refills again. I now have a direct way to contact her if that ever happens again so I can stay on my prescribed medication. So appreciative of her!
