About me

Dr. Au specializes in general obstetrics and gynecology and has particular interests in minimally invasive surgery, cervical cancer screening and prevention, contraception, vaginal hysterectomy, patient safety, education, family-centered obstetric care, and breastfeeding medicine. She is an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC) and also serves on the Board of Directors for the Northwest Mothers Milk Bank. She can’t imagine a more rewarding career and is thrilled to continue her practice at OHSU where she also completed her residency training. 

Dr. Au grew up in San Francisco, but has also spent time in the Midwest and on the East Coast. In her spare time, she enjoys crafting, interior design, and exploring Portland with her husband and daughters. She is a former competitive volleyball player and enjoys cheering for the Portland Timbers and the San Francisco Giants.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
