Zoryana has joined the clinic’s care team, providing obstetric and gynecological care as well as assisting Mid-Valley OB/GYN’s three physicians during surgical procedures. Most recently, Zoryana worked in the Emergency and Surgery departments at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital. Her duties included seeing patients in the Emergency Department and assisting with surgeries.
As a physician assistant, Zoryana performs obstetrical and gynecological procedures including women’s annual exams, all forms of contraception, evaluation of abnormal pap smears with colposcopy, endometrial biopsy and evaluation of post-menopausal bleeding and more. She also manages basic infertility and sees women of all ages.
“I enjoy my patient relationships,” said Zoryana. “I think it is essential to listen to your patients’ concerns and present all the information and options in a way that they feel they are taking a part in making decisions for themselves. I believe that half of medicine is listening to your patients. I love providing women’s health and while I have experienced other areas of medicine, this is my place.”
Zoryana earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Oregon Health & Science University. She earned her undergraduate degree at Oregon State University.
“I love the Pacific Northwest, and while having moved around quite a bit during my childhood, I consider this area my home,” she said.
Away from the clinic, Zoryana enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, hiking, camping and doing anything that involves nature and wildlife. She also enjoys quiet days of reading and gardening.
Zoryana is accepting new patients. For more information, call Mid-Valley OB/GYN at 541-451-7250.
