Meet Dr. Kirchoff

Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician

Dr Donna Kirchoff
Dr. Kirchoff completed her pediatric residency at OHSU in 1999, and was chief resident in the OHSU Department of Pediatrics from 1999-2000.  She spent the first 5 years of her pediatric career practicing general pediatrics in a private practice, where she realized that her true passion was helping children with developmental and behavioral challenges.  She then joined a team of developmental pediatricians, speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and neuropsychologists at a non-profit organization, (initially called Northwest Early Childhood Institute, then Artz Center, then Albertina Kerr), where she worked with other providers to provide comprehensive care for children with developmental and behavioral challenges.  This experience helped shape her collaborative approach to patient care.

Dr. Kirchoff completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine in February 2016.  Because many patients use complementary and alternative treatments, she felt it was important to be knowledgeable about how to safely combine traditional with complementary/alternative treatments, and also felt it was important to be able to advise patients about the safety and efficacy of complementary and alternative treatment options.  One of her current areas of interest is determining which types of holistic/complementary/alternative treatments work best for specific developmental/behavioral challenges.

After working for 10 years in the non-profit medical industry, Dr. Kirchoff realized that increasing productivity and documentation demands were decreasing her ability to provide excellent patient care. She started her own practice in 2016, with the intention of providing the highest quality care for her patients and their families.

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Kirchoff enjoys spending time with her husband and children, hiking, biking, windsurfing, skiing, and reading good books.
