About Dr. Christopher

Diane Christopher, MD, is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and earned her bachelor of science in biochemistry from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She went to medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and completed her residency at Northwestern University in Chicago.

Dr. Christopher chose OB/GYN as a specialty because she likes to help women through all periods of their lives, from menarche to menopause. She also enjoys the continuity of care that OB/GYN provides. Diagnosing, treating and then following patients through a specific medical problem is very rewarding for her.

Her clinical interests include preconception counseling, reproductive genetics and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr. Christopher says delivering babies and guiding women through pregnancy and all aspects of birth is by far the best part of her job. Women are often scared or nervous in anticipating their delivery and she likes to provide education to help allay those fears.

Education

  • Medical School: University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine (2007)
  • Residency: McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University Program (2011)

Did you know?

A true woman's advocate, Dr. Christopher says she will never recommend a medication, surgery or treatment that she would not also recommend to her own mother, sister or friend.
 
I think it's very important that a patient feels she is being heard by her physician and finds satisfaction with her visit. I know I’ve reached a patient when she recommends her mother or sister to me. Dr. Diane Christopher
