Tillamook Hospital Welcomes Michelle Barhaghi, MD


Tillamook County General Hospital welcomes Michelle Barhaghi, MD, to practice obstetrics and gynecology with Women's & Family Health Services at Tillamook Medical Group.

Dr. Barhaghi graduated from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and completed residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Following that, she traveled and worked at hospitals in New Zealand and South Africa as their equivalent of an attending physician.

There are a number of therapeutic options available for some of the most common gynecological health concerns that women experience. In working with patients, Dr. Barhaghi seeks to improve their quality of life using minimally invasive approaches that have them back to their activities of daily living as quickly as possible. For example, after a small-incision laparoscopic procedure performed during a day surgery, a woman can be back to regular life within days rather than weeks.

"I am very pleased to welcome Dr. Barhaghi to Tillamook," stated Dr. Brittany Gerken, Tillamook Medical Group.  "She and I will be working closely together to expand the number of women's care services, especially in gynecology, that we can provide right here in Tillamook to meet the needs of our residents."
