Accepting Patients:

"I believe in the equality of women and want to help share and teach knowledge, so that girls and women have the facts and information to make the best decisions for themselves."


Dr. Wilder specializes in gynecology and obstetrics with a focus on minimally invasive surgery for fibroids and other gynecologic conditions. She has advanced training in minimally invasive approaches such as hysteroscopic surgery and laparoscopic surgery, in particular laparoscopic hysterectomy. She is dedicated to providing the best and most evidence-based care possible to every patient.

Dr. Wilder was born at OHSU and raised in the Portland metropolitan area. Her education and early work experiences took her to a variety of places including Guatemala, England, and the Navajo Nation. She enjoyed cultural learning opportunities while studying in South America and working with Indian Health Services in New Mexico and Arizona.

Respect and admiration for the people at OHSU brought her back as a doctor. She hopes to make a difference in Portland and beyond, improving public health and reducing health disparities of underserved populations.

Dr. Wilder enjoys meeting women and their families, learning their stories, and helping them get the reproductive care and information they need. In her spare time, Dr. Wilder likes to travel and spend time with friends and family.
