A native of Louisiana, Christopher Schwartzenburg, MD, was educated in the Northeast before relocating to the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Schwartzenburg obtained his medical degree from the University of Washington and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology residency at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.
Dr. Schwartzenburg was drawn to the field of obstetrics and gynecology as it enables him to care for patients through all stages of life, from contraception to childbirth, menopause and beyond. He enjoys helping moms-to-be navigate pregnancy and make sense of a very complicated, wondrous process. Being able to play a small part in the miracle of childbirth is truly a blessing. He also enjoys treating patients’ gynecologic concerns and overall health, and believes patient education and keen listening skills are paramount to providing good care. He tailors care to each patient's specific needs using an evidence-based approach to practicing medicine. He feels fortunate to have trained with some truly wonderful surgeons and is skilled at minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques.
Dr. Schwartzenburg and his wife are excited to be back in the Northwest, where they look forward to raising two wonderful daughters. He enjoys doing anything and everything possible outside, including hiking, kayaking, biking, skiing, and camping. He also enjoys travel, cooking, music, and picking up new hobbies.
