Dr. Hatfield’s clinical practice includes the whole spectrum of ob/gyn care, with an emphasis on minimally invasive surgery. Her favorite part of her work is having time to be present with patients. She strives to make time to listen to their stories, learn from their insights, and to partner with them in finding solutions to meet their needs.

She grew up in Berkeley, California and was there for undergraduate education. After a few years spent assisting environmental science research and education in beautiful parts of the world, she attended medical school, and then residency in ob/gyn. She chose OHSU because she wanted the opportunity to teach future health care providers, and wanted to be involved in leading edge medicine.

Dr. Hatfield has been at OHSU for several years and has loved getting to know and care for the thoughtful and informed patients who come to the Center for Women’s Health. She really enjoys reviewing all options for managing clinical problems, and coming to a decision with her patient in a collaborative way. For this reason, she helped establish the Center for Women’s Health Fibroid program. The program offers women with symptomatic fibroids an opportunity to have their case reviewed by a multidisciplinary team, followed by an appointment with Dr. Hatfield to review all possible management strategies.

    Dr. Hatfield was very thorough in explaining all the options with me. We tried other types of options before proceeding with hysterectomy and my overall experience with her was very very good. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family and I think she did a great job. And that's it.
