Before Beth Holthusen, PA-C, had even started high school, she knew where she wanted her career path to lead. "When I was just 12 years old, I decided I wanted to work in medicine," Beth recalled. "I love helping people to live healthier lives."
After completing the physician assistant program at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University, Beth quickly found the field of gynecology. "I love this specialty because of the preventive medicine aspect of it," she said. "I also enjoy patient education, and gynecology gives me many opportunities to help my patients understand their medical conditions and the health choices they can make.
"I work hard to treat my patients the way I want my family to be treated," Beth continued. "That includes making them active participants in their medical care."
Her husband and child keep Beth busy when she is away from the office. "Every chance I get, I enjoy spending time with them," she said.
