Our Practice

Kalispell OB/GYN - Growing familiesEstablished in 1962 by Dr. Van Kirke Nelson and later adding Drs. Heine and Sowell, Kalispell OB/GYN has provided quality OB/GYN care longer than any other OB/GYN practice in the Flathead Valley.

Today, Dr. Nelson, Jonas, Lavin and deHoop have taken stewardship of Kalispell OB/GYN and enjoy the practice of general obstetrics and gynecology.  Together, they have a combined total of over 75 years of delivering babies and caring for women’s health.  They are all accomplished laparoscopic surgeons, offering minimally invasive and robotic surgery, vaginal surgery including hysterectomy with no abdominal incisions, as well as prolapse repair.
All four physicians enjoy caring for women who are either pregnant or hoping to become pregnant.  They are strong advocates of offering women the option of having a vaginal delivery after a prior cesarean section, and along with Kalispell Regional Medical Center, offer this service to their patients.

Kalispell OB/GYN is happy to collaborate with certified nurse midwives for women who desire midwifery care.

We look forward to helping you make the best health care decisions for you and your family.
