Dr. made some wrong assumptions about my medical background, former treatment and level of knowledge resulting in unnecessary lecture. Otherwise, feel dr. is very knowledgeable & caring.

I felt that the care & concern from start to finish was exceptional. Everything was explained in full before hand & my comfort during my biopsies was very important to doctor & assistant. Thank you for helping me through a very difficult time in my life. Also thank you *Dr. L. for calling & putting my mind @ ease after the test results came back & far giving me options for continue care. [name]

The appointment I had with *Dr. Gilda Lorensen was one of the "worst experiences I have ever had. She was highly unprofessional, rude and pushing her personal agenda. Based on *Dr. Lorensen's personal agenda I feel as though the results I received from the test she performed were flawed, therefore I will be seeking a second opinion.

Hands down one of the worst Drs. I've ever had. She talked over me & didn't listen to anything I said. She dismissed any & all of my concerns. She had her mind made up before she even came in my room & wouldn't listen to any of my concerns. I would never recommend her to any one.

*Dr. Lorenson is an amazing, caring, knowledgeable person, and I am so thankful to have her as a medical care provider. She helped me reason through a handful of inter-related medical concern with my reproductive organs. These were physical & emotional concerns, and her support helped me physically & mentally.

I felt like the care provider was knowledgable and could help my situation. But did not have a concern for what I had questions about and did not want to listen to what I had to say when she asked me a question.

I was born and raised in beautiful California but love the Pacific Northwest and have lived here since 1981. I attended Stanford University, then Duke University Medical School, and finally Oregon Health & Science University for my Obstetrics and Gynecology training. I have been with Kaiser Permanente ever since, and I've watched us improve every year. I am very proud to practice medicine based on evidence and current research with our team of primary care physicians and specialists.

About my practice

My main goal is to help women solve their reproductive problems and I strive to empower women to be their own best health care providers. I maintain a general Obstetrics and Gynecology practice that provides care for pregnancy and delivery, pap smears, contraception, infections, bleeding problems, infertility, and cancer, among other things. I've also spent time focusing on Urogynecology, incontinence problems, and vulvar issues, as well as work in Health Education and Quality Assurance. I am privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente, where collaboration is strong, sub-specialists are easily available for consultation, and nurse-midwives/nurse-practitioners work right alongside physicians.

How I thrive

In addition to family, my favorite things are singing and being outside. I satisfy the latter urge with my big garden, hiking, camping, and skiing. I have also sung in many choirs and in a jazz quartet.
