Memberships, leadership, and awards include:
While in medical school, Dr. Halvorson explored a variety of fields of medicine and decided to pursue OBGYN because it combined many of the facets where she flourished. It also afforded her the opportunity to treat a wide range of patients-from infants to 90-plus years old. She considers the connections and trust she builds with her patients to be a privilege.
Some of Dr. Halvorson's special interests include abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine fibroids, minimally invasive surgery and high-risk pregnancy. Her style of care is to be honest and forthright, providing her patients with all the information they need to make a decision that is right for them. "T'll also be the one calling a patient at 9 pm with a pathology report if I know the patient can't sleep until it comes back," she said.
The mother of two seven-year-old twin boys, Dr. Halvorson lives in Bloomington and enjoys working and living the community where she practices. She and her husband, also a physician, enjoy family activities with their sons such as rooting on the Minnesota Twins, downhill skiing and fishing— on both ice and open water. Sometimes, their 12-year-old Sheltie dog, Wilbur, gets to join in the fun.
She joined Southdale ObGyn in the Fall of 2023, eager to collaborate with the team that is welcoming, practices evidence-based medicine and is on the cutting edge of the latest surgical techniques. "The team at Southdale ObGYN is a more traditionally professional team who care tremendously for patients and fellow team members."
