Meet Dr. Kristin Dolling
As told by Kristin Dolling, M.D.
We sat down with Kristin, Dolling, M.D., a board-certified OB/GYN with Swedish Covenant Medical Group and the Medical Director for The Clark, to learn more about her practice.
Building Relationships Through All Stages of Life
When I went into obstetrics and gynecology I was first drawn to the obstetrics portion, but I think after I started working in OB/GYN I became more interested in women's health and in the gynecology aspect of taking care of women from adolescence really through menopause or post-menopause.
I am able to build long-term relationships with patients.I see them when they're 19 or 20 going away to college, and then eventually through their 20's or 30's, potentially getting pregnant and working with them through their pregnancy, and then taking care of them for gynecological care afterwards. And that's what I really enjoy, is taking care of women through all stages of life.
Convenient Care at The Clark
I think they just prioritize patient care to such a high degree here. From the moment you step in the door through everything being done for the patient in the room.
We do all our lab work in-house. In fact, the lab technician is here with us every day. She goes to the room and draws the blood for the patients. I have an ultrasound machine in the office that I utilize, mostly for obstetric patients to check fetal heart tones or to check the position of the baby. And there are several procedures that we can actually do right here in the office that make it more convenient for the patient.
Dr. Kristin A. Dolling is the Medical Director of The Clark and a board-certified OB/GYN. She is inspired by strong women who overcome difficult circumstances, such as pushing through a tough labor, working their way through a challenging pregnancy or accepting a difficult diagnosis. Dr. Dolling prioritizes doctor-patient relationships and a high level of patient care.
