After attending her first birth Susan Harvey knew that Obstetrics was going to be a big part of her life.
She began her medical career as a Physician Assistant, and worked both in Denver and for a Native Alaskan Corporation in Kodiak. She returned to medical school in the 80’s and finished her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Washington. She has been Board Certified since 1992.
For over 27 years her obstetrical practice has been a mix of low risk patients desiring “natural” deliveries and higher risk patients, such as patients with advanced maternal age, those desiring VBAC, IVF pregnancies and twins. She also has a gynecology practice, offering contraceptive options such as IUD’s, alternatives for heavy menstrual bleeding like Endometrial Ablation and treatment of abnormal pap smears. Her surgical practice includes minimally invasive procedures, prolapse and incontinence surgery.
In 2016 Judy Kimelman and Susan Harvey decided to better balance their lives and combined their practice. They structure their schedule for one of them to be available every week of the year, and their patients are shared.
