OB/GYN consultations to be offered at Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Pine River Clinic

Dr. Kirsten Sjostrand, Essentia Health Obstetrician and Gynecologist

Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Pine River Clinic is pleased to offer OB/GYN consultations at 415 Barclay Avenue, Pine River. Dr. Kirsten Sjostrand, an Essentia Health Obstetrician and Gynecologist based in Brainerd, will be at the Pine River Clinic the fourth Tuesday of the month, beginning in October 23.

Dr. Sjostrand believes women deserve special care. That’s one reason she became an obstetrician and gynecologist.

“I was sure I wanted to care for women from the very beginning of my training,” Dr. Sjostrand says. “I wanted to reach out to women and meet their specific needs. I think women deserve special care and I feel my personal experiences as a woman give me empathy for what goes on with women.”

Dr. Sjostrand currently practices at Essentia Health’s Baxter Specialty Clinic. She also sees patients at the Good Beginnings OB Clinic at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd.

Dr. Sjostrand enjoys the variety that comes with caring for women at all stages of their lives, including pregnancy and childbirth.

“I like talking with a teenager about her body, her life and her goals. I want to help her get on the right track,” she says. “I want the best care for my mother, so I want to give the best care to somebody else’s mother.”

OB/GYN services include pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, incontinence, or reproductive health concerns, maternity, and well-women care.
