About Me

I have always been passionate about health and feel it is a great privilege and responsibility to care for people when they are ill.

- LaWanda Dimmler, PA-C

Born and raised in North Dakota, Lawanda started working in surgery at age 20 and traveled around the country to different hospitals until she took an assignment in Eugene and fell in love with Oregon. Lawanda returned to school for her bachelor of science degree at the University of Oregon and her master of science in physician assistant studies from Pacific University.

Other Interests: 

I spend my time away from medicine with family. We enjoy many popular Pacific Northwestern activities: running, biking, hiking, and camping.
