RJ Gillespie, M.D., M.H.P.E.

I grew up in Portland and was a former Children’s Clinic patient. I believe the patient comes first, so I like to address all patient concerns thoroughly at each appointment. At any given appointment, there are topics that we should cover that help patients understand their child’s growth and development – but ultimately, patients and parents drive the agenda. My favorite part of my job is watching each child’s progression from one visit to the next – seeing the “light bulbs” going off as kids figure things out. From toddlers mastering a new skill to teens seeing things in a new way is always fun to watch.

I decided that I wanted to be a doctor after a high school mission trip to Honduras, where I was inspired by a Honduran community doctor out in the field who helped people in their daily lives. Medical school rotations with kids solidified pediatrics for me.

I am an avid reader, having read 50 books each year for the past two years, have a German Shepherd named Angus and am an amateur photographer. I enjoy cooking and used to test recipes for a local cooking school. 

I share my practice with Dr. Kim Wollmuth, who brings a lot of compassion to her work. It’s great being able to bounce patient problems off her, she offers a different perspective to patient care and our combined experiences make us both stronger doctors.

Shared Practice

Kim Wollmuth, M.D.

Every patient has a primary pediatrician. Sometimes, especially for last-minute appointments, your pediatrician may not have available appointments, so our pediatricians partner with each other to reduce wait times and improve access to care. Additionally, they partner with someone that complements their style and brings a fresh perspective to their patient’s care.
