About me

I was born a Kaiser Permanente baby at Bess Kaiser Hospital and grew up in the Portland area. My father, Arnold Hurtado, MD, was one of the early Kaiser Permanente doctors, and I have followed in his footsteps. From early on in medical school, I was fascinated by the complex system of hormones in the body, which led me to specialize in the field of endocrinology. For me, it is a privilege to work in this challenging area, and I enjoy the uniqueness of the people I encounter each day.

About my practice

I have a special interest in thyroid disorders, especially the evaluation and treatment of thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, and hyperthyroidism. I also take care of people with a wide range of endocrine problems including diseases of the pituitary and adrenal glands, osteoporosis, reproductive conditions, and diabetes. A very important part of my job is that of an educator, making sure that my patients understand the options for treatment and the risks and benefits for them as individuals. I then try to help patients choose the path that fits best. I feel extremely fortunate to be supported by an amazing team of dedicated nurses and medical assistants in our department. I am a strong believer that a healthy lifestyle can prevent all sorts of medical conditions. Over the past few years, I have put together a collection of books on various health topics for my patients to look through while in my office. My goal is to motivate all of my patients to exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet.

How I thrive

I am the mother of two teen boys, which keeps life interesting and challenging. Physical fitness is very important to me, and I try to squeeze in time each day to take care of my body. I have discovered that a short daily yoga practice helps "keep me young" and mobile, so that is how I start almost every day. Listening to my favorite podcasts and novels during my commute makes that part of the day enriching, interesting, and often fun.
