Dr. Lindy Vraniak
Lindy was raised in Spokane WA, enjoying the many mountains, rivers and lakes. She attended Montana State University and graduated with a degree in Microbiology and went on to medical school at University of Washington. This took her to Denver for her OB/GYN residency at Exempla St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she met her husband. After residency, and thrilled to move to Bend, Lindy practiced as a board certified OB/GYN for several years. Then after the birth of her son, Lindy decided to take some time off work to be with her family and raise her two children. Now, after taking almost 3 years, Lindy is back and excited to share with patients all that she’s gained in her time away. When not at one of the many local parks, you might find Lindy riding bikes with her kids, out on a trail run or enjoying a cup of coffee in the neighborhood coffee shop.
