Gillian Betterton, MD

Pacific Women’s Center is thrilled to announce that Dr. Gillian “Jill” Betterton will be joining us on April 1, 2012!

Dr. Gillian “Jill” Betterton graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1983.

She completed her internship in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Olive View Medical Center/UCLA and went on to complete her residency at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Virginia.

Ten minutes after graduation, Jill and her husband and young daughter left the stifling heat and headed to the more temperate Pacific Northwest , where they have been enjoying life ever since.
