About Me:

I have been practicing midwifery since 2010 and in that time have been privileged to attend over 700 births. I believe a woman should be comfortable with her provider and that she and her provider should have a trusting relationship with open communication. I started out at PCC, transferred to and graduated from U of O and went to Columbia University for nursing & midwifery. After graduation from Columbia, I practiced in the Philadelphia area for five years where I gained invaluable experience and since starting with the Legacy Health System in 2015, I've gained even more experience and insight into how best to care for women and their families. In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities, including running, hiking, camping, skiing, paddling and mountain biking - many of these activities include my husband and our two German Shepherds. I love being an Oregonian, the Pacific Northwest is an amazing place to be outdoors.

Master of Science in Nursing: Columbia University
Bachelors of Science in Nursing: Columbia University

Heather is clearly well versed in trauma informed care. I felt safe, comfortable, seen and heard throughout my visit. She was patient and listened to all my questions and concerns, and requested my informed consent for everything she did. I felt she was extremely knowledgeable, but I do not feel she will pressure me into anything I am not comfortable with. I genuinely look forward to my next visit with her.

I didn't have to wait very long to see Dr Carrion, and she took my pain seriously, which I appreciate. The appointment ran long, however, because she kept bringing up stuff in my medical history that was irrelevant to the appointment, like a cold I had months ago. I wish we could've stayed focused on why I was actually there instead of dwelling so much on my medical history.

My visit was only scheduled for 15 minutes, but because of what the doctor found, she stayed to do a biopsy. Took the time that was needed to get that done and pain free as possible prior to biopsy, and no pain during the biopsy.

This was the best clinic I've ever gone to for women's health. All of the staff was very pleasant to work with and kind. They make you feel as a guest in their own home. Very good energy and my procedure went better as expected. I was a little nervous, however the provider was very through on the procedure and explained everything during the process. I would recommend this clinic to any friend or family member. I was very impressed with the staff! Thank you!

So I came in after a miscarriage to discuss options or where to go from here. I have been trying to get pregnant for two years finally did and suffered a miscarriage at week 6. We changed my 8 week apt to just a follow up to talk about options that might help us moving forward to get pregnant. The very first thing she asked me when she got in the room is "ok well what do you want to talk about" like she didn't already know. I was just feeling like she put it on me to come up with suggestions or recommendations on where we could go from here. Which is exactly what happen. I had to come up with everything...I had to Ask her well what about this or trying this. Should my husband go get his sperm tested are there any hormones I could start taking. Basically her answer to anything I brought up was no that wont help or why would you do that If you just got pregnant. What really would have been the harm to say yes if your husband could go get his sperm tested then we can rule that out. But no her answer again was well why would you do that the sperm just met the egg so it did work. I said yes but it's been two years and this is the first time and then it actually didn't work out. I felt like I had to lead the whole apt and come up with suggestions that she then just shot down. I felt completely unsupported and left there feeling worst and more hopeless in my journey to get pregnant. At the end of the apt she said I should take folic acid and just keep trying. I don't think she should help people that are having a hard time getting pregnant. Maybe she's a good provider when someone is pregnant but I will not go back to her as she is super unhelpful. She also at the end asked me if I was "getting impatient" like waiting two years and not having anything happen wasn't a valid feeling or wanting to do other things was just unnecessary at this time. I would never recommend her to anyone and I felt she did not help me at all. I'm looking for a different provider to go to and might leave legacy all together.
