About Northwest OB-GYN

Northwest OB-GYN exists to provide matchless care to our patients.

To provide this care requires a sensitive, caring attitude that goes beyond patient expectations. Patients are treated with dignity and respect under ALL circumstances.

We’ve been meeting women’s healthcare needs for over 30 years, and look forward to continuing to be the physician practice of choice for women in Spokane and throughout the great Northwest.

Our doctors and midwives are happy to deliver at either Sacred Heart or Deaconess depending on the patients preference. 

Our History

Founded over 30 years ago by Drs. Robert Walker, Steve Brisbois, Peter Fern and Glen Hiss.

These four innovative, quality minded and compassionate physicians realized their practice would grow and include specialties within the OB-GYN field and selected the name, Northwest OB-GYN, in recognition of serving women throughout the greater northwest.

Dr. Jeffrey Hilton, Dr. Daniel Zwiesler, Dr. Kathryn Miles, Dr. Stephen Pakkianathan, and Dr. Dawn Kopp continue to share the same values and vision of a patient-centered practice. These physicians ensure that the full range of comprehensive and integrated women’s health care is provided with expertise and compassion throughout Northwest OB-GYN.​

We remain committed to offering comprehensive women’s healthcare services under a shared center of excellence, staying current in new technologies, medical advances and subspecialties, to provide the best integrated care for our patients. Our Urogynecology division comprises approximately one third of our practice – truly a commitment to this area of women’s health.​

Since 1989 we have had midwives serving our community. We currently have three Certified Nurse Midwives, Lisa Larkin, Mahshid Aghesadeghi, and Charlie Ann Lynch. Our Certified Nurse Midwives deliver at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center’s Birthing Place and Deaconess Hospital. Northwest OB-GYN also has excellent ARNP and PA-C staff that are important and valued members of our health care team and whom our patients may see during various components of their care at our offices.
