Bio

I have always been interested in science and humanitarian pursuits, which made medicine a natural career fit for me. I explored laboratory and clinical research in India, but direct patient care is my passion. Doctors can often make a big difference for people who feel as though they have been forgotten in society. That’s why, at various phases of my life, I have volunteered as a suicide hotline operator and worked as an HIV educator, an acute care clinician for the homeless, and a surgical intern at a public hospital in El Salvador.

In urology, we see some patients with specific problems that we can solve quickly, and others who require a lifetime doctor-patient relationship. The field is at the forefront of technology — urologists, for example, were among the first doctors to use cameras and robots for minimally invasive surgery. I see a nice balance of younger and older patients, men and women. I take a personal approach with my patients, collaborating with their other doctors, our support staff and the patients themselves to improve their health. Medicine is a team sport; I enjoy having a career that allows me to work with other people in a positive way to help others. I particularly enjoy treating enlarged prostate and other men’s health issues, urinary stone disease, incontinence and urologic cancers. One specialty I offer is no-scalpel vasectomy.

I hold an undergraduate degree from Brown University and a medical degree from the University of California San Francisco. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but my family’s roots are in Oregon.

At home, I am a crossword fanatic, and I often get together with my extended family to solve the Sunday New York Times puzzle over coffee. I also love to work with my hands — not just as a surgeon, but also as a classically trained pianist and as a stained-glass artist. In addition, I enjoy hiking along forest trails, making cheese and charcuterie, cooking, and exploring new cultures through food. I am a travel junky and Francophile, and although having young children has grounded my flight pattern for a while, it’s a nice trade-off. I believe that cultivating a balance between home and work makes me a more empathetic and effective physician.

Dr. Woldrich has been named a Top Doctor by Portland Monthly magazine multiple times.
