Tahoe Women's Care

Gary Willen, MD, MBA

Gynecologist located in Carson City, NV

Please know that we are still serving our patients, although a bit differently now. Women still have health problems and concerns that need to be addressed. If you need to see us, know that for your safety and for the safety of our employees, we have made the following changes:

FIRST - WE DON’T SEE SICK PATIENTS IN OUR OFFICE - NO ONE COMES TO US FOR THEIR RESPIRATORY ILLNESS.

WE DO, HOWEVER, REALIZE THAT YOUR HEALTH CONCERNS MAY REQUIRE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR HOME NAD COME TO OUR OFFICE AND THEREFORE WE WILL TAKE SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS FOR YOU AND FOR OUR STAFF.

    1. We will screen you before you come to the office and if you are feeling ill, have traveled outside of our area, or have had visitors from out of the area, we will reschedule your appointment.
    2. We ask that you come alone. If you need someone to drive you, please ask them to wait in the car.
    3. The door is locked and we will unlock it when you arrive - this is to keep delivery people from entering our office. Please use the hand sanitizer stationed outside before you come into the office
    4. We will not have anyone waiting in the waiting room but will take you directly to an exam room AFTER we have checked your temperature.
    5. No one will be seen in Dr. Willen’s office since the chairs are difficult to sterilize. He will consult with you in the exam room which has been cleaned before and after you are here.
    6. We are vigorously cleaning all areas that might be touched with special wipes and cleansers that kill all viruses and bacteria.
    7. We spray all mail and boxes that are delivered to the office and wipe all door handles and light switches frequently.

We understand if you prefer to remain at home and we will happily reschedule your appointment. If, however, you have health concerns, please know that we are here to care for you.

STAY SAFE, WASH YOUR HANDS, AND DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE!!!

About Dr. Willen

Gary F. Willen, MD, MBA, provides compassionate gynecologic care for women at Tahoe Women’s Care in Carson City, Nevada. His 38+ years of experience have equipped him with the expertise to handle a range of women’s health services, from young women’s first exams to family planning to menopause management. Dr. Willen also services the surrounding communities of Southlake Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Minden, and Gardnerville. 

In a noteworthy educational feat, Dr. Willen earned his bachelor’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnical Institute in just two years. He then graduated from Albany Medical College of Union University with his medical degree when he was only 23. Dr. Willen completed his residency at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Medical Center after delivering more than 3,000 babies and performing 500 surgeries.

After his residency, Dr. Willen was board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and he practiced obstetrics and gynecology in Ohio for five years before opening his private practice. Dr. Willen founded Tahoe Women’s Care in South Lake Tahoe, California, in 1984. By 1988, he had expanded his practice to Carson City and continues to practice at both locations. He also maintains affiliations with Carson Valley Medical Center and Barton Hospital.

Dr. Willen returned to school to earn his Master’s of Business Administration from the University of South Florida in 1997. In addition to the high value Dr. Willen places on education, he’s also devoted to the latest in surgical advancements.

In 1996, Dr. Willen was one of the first gynecologists in his area to become accredited by the Council for Gynecologic Endoscopy. He later pioneered several minimally-invasive gynecological procedures and has been extensively involved in research studies for the makers of the da Vinci® surgery robotics. He also specializes in urinary incontinence and organ prolapse diagnostics and treatment.

Dr. Willen maintains memberships with the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, and the American Medical Association. He is also a member of the American Association of Physician Executives.
