Biography

Dr. Furukawa was born in Missoula, Montana, and grew up in Spokane, Washington. She attended Loyola University Chicago, and graduated with honors in Biology. After a year as a volunteer clinic coordinator and case manager at a homeless shelter for families in Denver, Colorado, she returned to the Northwest for medical school at the University of Washington in Seattle. She completed her internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

Dr. Furukawa feels greatly privileged to provide general obstetrics and gynecology care to women of all walks of life. She has special interests in high-risk pregnancy, infertility, female sexuality, contraception, obesity, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, and adolescent gynecology. Dr. Furukawa loves having the opportunity to teach her patients about their health; after all, in its Latin roots, "doctor" means "to teach."

Dr. Furukawa is happily married and enjoys reading, gardening, hiking, dancing, and running. She loves to travel, and has collaborated on women's health projects in both Guatemala and Ethiopia. She speaks intermediate Spanish and enjoys a diverse patient population.
