What is a Physician Assistant?
A Physician Assistant is a healthcare professional who practices medicine as a part of a healthcare team with collaborating physicians. You may hear them referred to as a “PA” which stands for Physician’s Assistant.
In the United States, Physician Assistants are nationally certified and state licensed to practice medicine. A certified Physician Assistant is known as a PA-C.
At Women’s Pelvic Specialty Care of New Mexico, our Physician’s Assistants are all certified as PA-C’s, and are specialized in Women’s Health. They are able to diagnose, treat and prescribe medications just like our Physicians and are certified providers. They can see our patients for all their Women’s Health needs.
At Women’s Pelvic Specialty Care of New Mexico, we believe our PA-C’s are top notch and we will schedule you with them first on your journey to a healthy body. You will love our Providers! If there is ever an issue that our PA-C’s need to refer you to see one of our Physicians, they will refer your care up appropriately inter-office.
