A Caring Doctor

Dr Gillaspie and family

Hello. I am Dr. Elaine Bayes Gillaspie. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I live in Tigard, Oregon; I have been married for 32 years and have two college educated sons.

I have been serving Portland families as a naturopathic doctor for the past 35 years.

My time in practice has given me a wide range of experience, and I have seen and helped individuals from the beginning of life through old age.

My approach is to work with you to see what you are doing right, to see where you need to implement changes, and to be part of your health and vitality team.

I work to stay up with current trends and pass the best information on to my patients.
