Welcome New Physician: Paul Welch, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology


Paul Welch, MD, board-certified in obstetrics & gynecology, has joined the Women’s & Family Health clinic at Tillamook Medical Group.

Dr. Welch earned his medical degree from Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, CA. Beginning a residency in family medicine, he realized after his first rotation in obstetrics and gynecology that this was where he wanted to focus his career. He then completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Southern Illinois University System in Springfield, IL, and went on to open a women’s healthcare practice in Columbus, NE.

Caring for women throughout the seasons of their life is a rewarding experience for Dr. Welch. The hallmark of his approach as a physician is to build long-lasting relationships of trust with patients as he works together with each one to achieve the best possible health so that they can enjoy life to the fullest. He is a strong believer in the value of preventive care for people of all ages. “It’s never too late to start marking healthy changes,” he states. “You don’t need to wait to make New Year’s Day resolutions—there’s no time like today to make positive changes in your life.”

In his free time, Dr. Welch enjoys jet skiing, snowboarding and flying remote-controlled planes. He and his wife Tracy have three young children, with a fourth child due this Fall.

Patients may choose to see Dr. Welch in either Tillamook or Manzanita. For an appointment, please call (503)-842-5546.
