Tillamook Hospital Welcomes Radiologist Maureen Filipek, MD

General

Tillamook County General Hospital welcomes radiologist Maureen Filipek, MD, who is now providing diagnostic radiology services at the hospital. Dr. Filipek has been board certified by the American Board of Radiology since 2005.

Dr. Filipek received a bachelor's degree with honors in chemistry from Southern Oregon State College and earned her doctor of medicine, also magna cum laude, from Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU). She completed residencies at Legacy Health System in Portland and at OHSU, followed by work as a hospital-based trauma radiologist and then as an outpatient radiologist at EPIC Imaging West in Beaverton, Oregon.

In addition to skills in imaging specialties such as interventional image-guided procedures and soft tissue biopsy, Dr. Filipek also brings to Tillamook her experience in women’s imaging and a great passion for breast cancer detection and prevention. She has authored a number of articles and book chapters, as well as presented regularly at Portland-area workshops.

"My favorite thing about working in a small town community hospital is that the atmosphere lends itself to personal care for patients and enhanced relationships with community doctors and health care providers," shared Dr. Filipek. "I love that I can give most patients their results personally and talk with them."

Dr. Filipek and her husband, Lonnie, have two grown daughters who both live in Oregon. Her hobbies include reading, hiking, outdoor movement of any kind, and time spent with family and friends. When not in Oregon, Dr. Filipek can also be found working as a radiologist in Homer, Alaska.
