She has three boys and loves everything about the outdoors. Dr. Cohen is bilingual and speaks Spanish.

Thomas Eagan, DO

Dr. Eagan is an Ob/Gyn because he enjoys taking care of patients through their whole spectrum of life: from contraception and childbirth to midlife hormones and later-life incontinence and prolapse issues.  He specifically enjoys surgery and is at home in the operating room.  Because of this surgical interest, his practice focuses on pelvic floor problems from a minimally invasive approach.  He is Bio-TE certified for hormone pellet therapy and MonaLisa Touch certified for laser therapy.

Dr. Eagan graduated from the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008.  He then went on to Akron, Ohio to do his Ob/Gyn residency, finishing in 2012.  He and his family have been here ever since. His wife is an Oregon native, that was the initial draw to this beautiful state.  Now having been here awhile, he can’t picture himself anywhere else. When not in the office or operating room, he can be found enjoying Oregon’s great outdoors while trying to keep up with his teenagers or ocean fishing every weekend possible.  

Dr. Eagan performs services at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center, Grants Pass Surgery Center, and Asante Outpatient Center.

Lauren Javernick, MD

Dr. Lauren Javernick joined Women's Health Center in August 2021. She completed her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas before moving to Grants Pass with her husband and 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.

 

Caroline Kelly, MD

Dr. Kelly wants her patients to know that she will be their ally, helping them to develop personalized solutions for their medical issues. Dr. Kelly graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and trained in Philadelphia, PA. She and her husband take full advantage of the  outdoors, enjoying cycling, hiking and snowshoeing in Southern Oregon with their two chocolate labs, Rogue and River.

Tamara Medley, MD

Dr. Medley knew as a child that she would go into obstetrics. She says, “There is nothing more wonderful or magical than the birth of a child.”  She has four children of her own and knows the challenges and joys of motherhood.  She went into OB/GYN because she wanted to be able to take care of women throughout their life span. Her GYN practice includes the full scope of GYN care from the early pediatric consultation, teen care, family planning, pain, abnormal bleeding, abnormal pap smears, menopause care, genitourinary symptoms, all the way to the pelvic support problems of centenarians.  She has been practicing for over 20 years and loves the Rogue Valley. In her free time is constantly listening to Audiobooks, hiking, biking, walking her goats, and doing volunteer education programs at the local high schools.

Dr. Medley has been on many leadership committees and Chair of the Obstetrics Department at Asante Three Rivers Community Hospital.  She does all her deliveries and major surgeries at Asante.  She also operates at the Grant Pass Surgery center. She does in-office ultrasound-guided procedures, hysteroscopy, labiaplasty, and Mona-Lisa Touch.

Justin Shelton, DO

Dr. Shelton completed medical school and his residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA.  Dr. Shelton became an OB/GYN to take care of all women across their entire life-span and finds every aspect of care very rewarding. From partnering with patients through a safe and healthy pregnancy, to guiding women through the variety of gynecological issues, Dr. Shelton works to be each patient's advocate for quality of life and reproductive health. He has a strong interest and skill in minimally invasive surgery and is happy to be part of our provider team.
