Meet Katherine McLean, M.D., Gynecology & Maternity Care Provider | UW Medicine

KATHERINE MCLEAN, MD: What I enjoy most about my patient interactions is seeing how strong and determined my patients are And I'm really inspired by that

And I think you really get to see that in the labor and birth process And you also get to see that on the gynecology spectrum of things, as well A lot of my gynecology patients are a little bit older, and watching them recover from surgery, for example, I see that same determination, and I find that really inspiring One of the things I also enjoy is really being there for my patients as much as I can It doesn't always work out this way, but I really do like to be able to participate directly in my patients births, if possible

And I was able to come to the hospital for one of my patient's births just earlier this week And it's really special to get to be the one to take care of somebody for every visit, and then to get to be there for the birth And that's really wonderful continuity I like that a lot I'm already having repeat patients for their second pregnancies, and their second birth with me

And I really love getting to know somebody, and be able to be present with them throughout the whole process And it takes years to form that kind of relationship And that's what I enjoy the most, is the continuity
