A PA benefits the fertility care setting, from initial consultation to fertility treatment
A physician assistant (PA) is a medical professional who is nationally certified and state-licensed to provide many of the same medical services doctors provide and are equally responsible for patient care in all settings and specialties. One of the benefits of having a PA on a fertility care team is the added benefit of having another high-level medical professional working with patients. PAs work closely with patients and doctors in the reproductive endocrinology setting, performing routine procedures, establishing relationships with patients and providing a lot of their ongoing care.
Fertility Answers uses PAs in both our Baton Rouge and Lafayette clinical settings: Grace Pitt, PA-C in our Baton Rouge clinic and Renee Clary, PA-C in our Lafayette clinic. Both of our PAs are highly trained healthcare professionals, graduating from highly competitive programs. And both were drawn to women’s health providing personalized and effective care as extensions of our physicians.
