Biography & Education


It is my goal and privilege to get to know each of my patients beyond their medical concerns. For me, this part is critical to creating an individualized treatment plan. I love that my job permits me to participate in some of the most important events in a woman's life.

As much as I love celebrating these wonderful moments, I believe my most important role is to support my patients during their more difficult times. I have a special interest in helping patients manage obstetric or gynecologic issues that are emotionally challenging including infertility, miscarriage, management of abnormal pap smears, and weight concerns.

Outside of work, my family is most important to me. I am happily married to a supportive spouse with two children. Our family is very active, and we enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, camping and traveling together. I also love playing soccer, tennis and running. Most of all, I love running to deliveries!

I completed medical school at Emory University in my home town of Atlanta, Ga. I completed my residency training at Oregon Health & Science University in 1999. I was in private practice in Portland for 14 years before joining the Providence team as a part-time provider. In 2007, I was recognized by Portland Monthly as one of Portland’s top doctors.

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

She went over an available treatment options with me in detail.

wonderful, thorough care, very satisfied and impressed

Dr. Bauer is extremely knowledgeable and yet very down to earth and thorough.

This was the first time seeing this doctor. I don't have anything bad to say about her. She answered my questions in a "politically correct" manner. I was looking for advice and basically left feeling like I need to do the research myself. I have been disappointed in services from past appointments.

Am an out of town visitor who had a problem that needed to be addressed. All care was excellent.

Dr. Bauer was fantastic! I felt like she took the time to review my medical record prior to seeing me. She listened carefully and provided excellent advice.

dr. Bauer seemed very concerned with my health and very willing and able to help me with my concern.

They had good care thank you.
