Dr. Larsen was born and raised in the farmlands of Hillsboro, Oregon. She obtained her Biology degree from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, and after a brief experience fabricating computer chips at Intel, decided that her dream was to practice medicine. At Oregon Health Sciences University, she found her calling in Urologic Surgery, and completed her Urology residency training at University of California Irvine. Certified by the American Board of Urology, her practice covers all aspects of male and female urological care.
Over time, her focus has steadily become more on the urological issues of the post-menopausal female, and exploring new treatment options for female urinary incontinence and pelvic pain. Dr. Larsen makes every effort to put her patients at ease when discussing these difficult and sometimes embarrassing issues that can so deeply affect a woman’s quality of life.
Dr. Larsen spent 23 years practicing Urology in Las Vegas, focused on urinary issues of women, as well as kidney transplantation. When she started in Nevada, Dr. Larsen was the first and only female urologist in the entire state. For eight years, Dr. Larsen also served as a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserve Medical Corps.
Dr. Larsen has since moved to Portland, now living on a gorgeous farm and has dedicated her skills to providing the MonaLisa Touch treatment to patients from northwest Oregon at Joya Woman's Healthcare. Her patient reviews and outstanding credentials made her the top rated urologist doctor in Oregon.
Dr. Larsen makes all her patients feel comfortable when it comes to talking about urological health issues. Whether you have been to a urologist before, or you are seeing one for the first time, Dr. Larsen and everyone at Joya Women's Healthcare will always take the time to listen to your needs and provide you with the best care.
Dr. Larsen comforts new patients by saying, "I make every effort to put my patients at ease when discussing these difficult and sometimes embarrassing issues that can so deeply affect a woman's quality of life. I am a firm believer in the roles that fitness and nutrition play in health care, and includes a discussion of this with all of my patients."
Outside of work, Dr. Larsen and her husband are avid enthusiasts of Oregon’s bounty and outdoor activities, and love to travel and cook together at their home in Portland. She is a firm believer in the roles that fitness and nutrition play in health care, and includes a discussion of this with all of her patients.
