New Physician Joining Women’s Health Center!
We are excited to announce a new physician will be joining our practice in August! That may seem like a long way off but as fast as time goes, we'll be scheduling appointments for her in no time! Dr. Lauren Javernick is currently completing her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas before moving to Grants Pass with her husband and adorable baby son.
Lauren grew up with a mother who was a neonatal intensive care nurse and her mom's love for these 'tiny humans' inspired Lauren to choose OB/GYN as her specialty in medical school. She is passionate about sharing education with her patients and working together with them to create personal care plans. While 'delivering birthdays' is one of her happiest moments, Dr. Javernick welcomes and cares for patients of all ages.
When not being a doctor, Lauren loves to hike, climb, swim, ski and explore with her husband and son. Looks like southern Oregon is the perfect place for her to settle!
Our providers and staff went all out for Halloween! Check out these pictures...Come by and enjoy the fun!
