Our Mid-Levels are Awesome!
Over the past 10 years, the presence of mid-level providers in the office setting has become quite the norm and we are excited to announce that our patients love our mid-level providers! Here at Physicians and Surgeons for Women, many appointments are typically with one of our mid-level providers. Unless you need to have surgery, your appointment can be with Amanda, Kat, Jessica, or Taylor. These 4 ladies are such a vital part of Physicians and Surgeons for Women and we couldn’t operate without them. Amanda, Kat, and Jessica are all, Certified Nurse Practitioners, Taylor is a Certified Physicians Assistant. All extremely knowledgeable when it comes to women’s health. All provide the same quality care that our physicians do. We understand that sometimes patients might be hesitant to schedule an appointment with a mid-level. I am here to tell you, you could miss out on amazing service! These ladies are full of compassion and care! They value their patients and truly look out for them. We want you to feel confident and comfortable with your provider. Here are frequently asked questions to help ease your mind.
Can she do a pap smear?
YES! Our mid-Level providers are pros when it comes to an annual and a pap is a test that frequently comes along with an annual appointment. Mid-Levels typically have more time on their hands than the physicians. Therefore, an annual exam is usually scheduled with them. They are able to take more time to talk with their patient and get to know them and their health history.

What if I need surgery?
You came to the right place! Our mid-levels are fortunate enough to have 3 amazing surgeons in their back pocket! Should you ever require a surgical procedure, Amanda, Kat, Jessica, or Taylor are able to review your condition with a surgeon and order any necessary lab work, imaging, or testing that could possibly be required.
