Dr. Suzuki was born in Pasadena, California and spent most of her childhood in Amherst, Massachusetts. She earned dual bachelor’s degrees in Microbiology/Immunology and Social Welfare from the University of California at Berkeley and a Masters of Public Health in the area of Maternal and Child Health from UCLA. In 1996 she obtained her medical doctorate from The University of California at Davis, and in 2000 completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Suzuki has been board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology since 2002.
Dr. Suzuki entered private practice in September 2000 and with the same practitioners formed Bridgeview Women’s Health in 2009. Dr. Suzuki feels privileged to have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of women through all the stages of their lives. She has a strong commitment to helping her patients make choices that are appropriate to their needs and consistent with their desires. To achieve this she feels it is important to understand each patient as an individual and seeks to have patients be active participants in their care.
Dr. Suzuki spends much of her free time with her husband and two children. You will often find her at the Portland Farmer’s Market or at various children’s activities around town (with her 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son always nearby). She is forever grateful for the wonderful (and often challenging) lessons she has learned as a parent, which she utilizes daily in her practice. She loves food to a fault and is fond of running, hiking, swimming, salsa dancing, cooking and has been know to dabble in piano and knitting.
"Dr. Suzuki, there's no way I could have made it through my labor without you. You are one of the most compassionate, wise, empathetic & stable doctors I've met, and all the help you offered through my entire pregnancy and during labor was invaluable. Just walking me through pushing and how to redirect my energy made all the difference. Thank you for all the time you gave and for building a level of trust that made all the difference in the world. I hope many more mothers-to-be experience your talent as a doctor."
